The deadline, this morning, was postponed after operational problems last week at Nets – the company behind national services such as Dankort and NemID. According to the agency, these issues have been resolved, but many companies have failed to take advantage of them.
“There is a lot of capacity right now, but there are few companies that are logged in to TastSelv, and we have only received a few digital information forms. There is capacity to receive many more, ”says Kenneth Joensen, corporation tax director at the Danish Tax Agency, in the press release.
Fines are likely to be imposed
If a company does not submit the required information to the Danish Tax Agency before the new 7 July deadline, it will be charged a tax surcharge for each day the information is delayed.
The tax surcharge amounts to DKK 200 per day and a maximum of DKK 5,000.
“It will be a pity if the companies do not take advantage of the days that the extension of the information deadline has provided,” said Joensen. “It is unlikely that we will postpone the deadline again.”
To turn the clock in Greenland
The Greenlandic government has proposed changing its time zone from UTC -3 to UTC -2. If the proposal is adopted, Greenland will move one hour closer to its eastern neighbors, including Denmark, the Faroe Islands and the United Kingdom. The proposal comes after an agreement reached in March between the Greenlandic and Danish governments, which gave Greenland the green light to choose its own time zone. Should it change to UTC -2, Greenland would be three hours behind Denmark.

Traffic accidents at a historic low
The number of people killed or injured in road accidents has fallen to the lowest level since the registrations began in the early 1930s, Statistics Denmark reports. However, according to the board: “The historically low level must be seen in the context of the fact that traffic in periods up to 2021 has been reduced due to the COVID-19 restrictions.”
