The Business Scheme

To run business personally or through a company? 

If you are self-employed or are you considering starting a business, it may be valuable for you to consider whether you want to run the business personally or through a company.


Self-employed people can choose from 3 types of taxation:

The Business Tax Scheme (Virksomhedsordningen)

The Return on Capital Scheme (Kapitalafkastordningen)

Individual Tax Law (Personskatteloven)


You can also choose to run the business through a company.

The Business Scheme Can Prevent You from Entering the Top Tax Bracket

You can smooth out your income over several years so that your total payment of top tax rate can be reduced. This is done by leaving all or part of the profits in the business scheme against a payment of a provisional tax of 22%. In this way, there is a kind of equality between the taxation of self-employed business' and limited companies.
