Denmark Migrant Workers
An individual is classed as a migrant worker if they enter a country that is not there own and work there. In the Scandinavian country of Denmark, they welcome migrant workers to their country, there are also visas available specifically for migrants who wish to work in Denmark under a skilled visa, they can also work in Denmark doing unskilled work if their visa permits this. Denmark have tax and pension specifically for migrant workers. To be able to use these schemes an individual must be classed as a migrant worker,being self employed in Denmark will also be classed as a migrant worker, if of course the individual is from another country. Either an employer or the employee can make pay into a foreign pension scheme in Denmark. 

This may allow the individual to be exempt from paying tax or there maybe a deduction against the taxable income in Denmark for the payments. The tax exemption means that if an employer pays into a scheme on the behalf of their employee, it will not be included in the taxable earnings of that employer. These rules also apply to employees who want to be taxed as cross border workers. An individual is classed as a cross border worker if they are accountable to controlled tax liability in Denmark. They must also receive a minimum of seventy five percent of an earned income from a Danish employer.

A migrant worker can contribute to a pension scheme in an EU or a EEA member state. The scheme can be paid in to for up to five years. During this period any payments that an individual makes will mean they are entitled to tax exemption or a full tax deduction for the whole of the five year period that they are making contributions. There is no tax on the annual returns from the pension scheme. The five years are counted from the time an individual migrant worker becomes liable to pay tax in Denmark. There must be documents that can prove certain requirements needed for this . There must be evidence that the migrant worker is fully liable to pay tax in Denmark. The previous three years before moving to Denmark the migrant must not have been subject to full or limited tax liability in Denmark. They must contribute to the pension for at least one year before becoming fully liable to pay tax in Denmark.
