Denmark To Study Taxation Of Sharing Economy

Changes to the tax rules for participants in the sharing economy in Denmark could follow a new review of how existing tax legislation affects gig economy workers, the Government has announced.

Tax Minister Karsten Lauritzen announced on March 28 that he has tasked the Tax Council with studying the issue, with a view to concrete proposals on meeting the tax challenges of the sharing economy being presented by May 2019, including in the area of value-added tax, as well as other taxes.

"We see an increasing group of Danes who stand outside our traditional groups in the labor market," Lauritzen said. "They can be caught up in tax law simply because they are organizing their work in a new way."

"Therefore, it is an important priority for me as tax ministers that we will be able to identify and solve solutions to the challenges that may arise," he added.
