VAT refund

In general
Detailed rules regarding the refund of VAT on goods, which are taken as luggage and which are purchased by persons residing outside the EU are set out in the Ministry of Taxation Executive Order on tax-free sales to travellers residing outside the EU (sections 33-36) (“Momsbekendtgørelsen”).


A condition for a VAT refund is in general that a certified customs check is conducted of travellers leaving EU territory in order to verify that the goods are exported.

In exceptional situations, where it has not been possible to check that the goods have been exported out of the EU in the prescribed manner, alternative documentation can be accepted by the Danish customs authorities for goods purchased in Denmark.


Such alternative documentation comprises an import certificate issued by the customs authorities in the purchaser’s country of residence.

Certificate issued by Danish Diplomatic Missions

As of 1 January 2019, Missions may no longer issue VAT statements to tourists who have visited Denmark and bought goods in Denmark and exported them to a country outside the EU, as such statements are no longer accepted by the Danish Tax Agency as a means to obtaining VAT refund.
