Frequently asked questions and answers about Eurojob Denmark and Denmark

The jobs offered by Eurojob Denmark are divided into:

  • jobs where experience is required, and
  • jobs where no experience is required - unskilled.

The only jobs where no experience is required are jobs on livestock or agricultural farms - the salary starts at 110 kr./hour for inexperienced people, and 125 kr./hour for people with experience in professional farms.

For the rest of the jobs, previous experience is required:

  • for example slaughterhouses - slaughtering/ cutting and carving/ deboning - salaries from 148.75 to 175.00 kr./hour
  • constructions - interior/ exterior/ painting/ ceramic tiles - salaries from 135.00 to 165.00 kr./ hour
  • deposits - salaries from 127 kr./ hour.

At the time being, only persons related to the Danish state can enter the territory of Denmark: ie have 1st degree relatives, reside in Denmark, or have obtained a job in Denmark.

If you have obtained a job in Denmark, you must have an Employment Contract signed by your employer and yourself, and present it to the authorities upon entry into Denmark.
Attention: the authorities usually call the employer to make sure that the document presented by you is not false.

You must also present a negative COVID rapid test, not older than 24 hours, upon entry into Denmark, and you must take a new PCR test upon arrival in Denmark.
The first 10 days of your arrival in Denmark are considered days of isolation, and you have the right to go ONLY to work and back.
Four days after your arrival in Denmark, you can take a new PCR test, and if the result is negative, you can leave the isolation. If you do not have the opportunity to take a new test every 4 days, then you must respect the 10-day isolation.

Exactly like before, every month you get 2.08 vacation days per month - a total of 25 days a year. The difference is that from now on you can benefit og your holiday as soon as you get the days. Thus, if you started the service in September, in October you can already benefit from two days off.

In Denmark, the salary is always gross (before taxes). The net salary (cash in hand) depends on the taxes you pay.

In Denmark, each person benefits from an individual tax deduction. This tax deduction is called fradrag and can have different values, but is on average at 5,000 kroner per month.

The net salary is calculated by deducting from the gross the following: 8% for the labor market, the pension contribution (approx. 100 crowns), the fradrag, and then the local taxes - on average somewhere at 38%, after which the fradrag is added back and the net salary results. In total, the taxes are in the first year, around 27-30%, and from the second year 33-35%.

In the first year, if you come from an EU member state, you can, in some cases, benefit from deductions for meals, accommodation and transport to Denmark. So in the first year, your fradrag may be higher than usual - but SKAT is the authority that decides if you are entitled to deductions.

You can get deductions if, for example, you have more than 24 kilometers to work, or if you are a single parent for your children, or if you are registered with the union, or if you have loans - you can get a deduction for paying interest on credit - more a lot of information here (click).

Most Danish employers do not provide accommodation; but there are exceptions - farmers generally provide accommodation, and its cost is on average 2,000-3,000 kroner per month for a room, with utilities included. The price is lower if the employer owns the property, and higher if he rents.

The same applies to cars - they are provided if expressly specified in the employment contract. There are employers who charge a fee per kilometer, if the car is used from time to time, or employers who charge a monthly fee - if the car is also used for personal gain. The monthly rent of a car that is used for personal gain can be around 3,000 kroner.

Regarding the meal - there are cases in which the employers provide a meal per day, for a certain amount paid monthly from the salary.

In Denmark nothing is free. If your employer provides you with a "free" car, or meal, or other benefits, then you must pay tax to SKAT for those benefits - see more here (click).

For its own employees (vikars), Eurojob Denmark can provide accommodation and car:

  • the price of accommodation is generally 3,000 kroner per month, and includes all utilities, and each employee has his own room
  • the price of car rental can vary between 1,000 kroner and 4,000 kroner per month, depending on how many people use the car. Fuel is not included in the rental price.

Although EU citizens have the right to work in Denmark, registration at the Emigration Office, Tax Office, and City Hall is mandatory for all people who want to work here.

It is recommended that each employee have a Danish bank account in order to receive the salary. There are employers who can transfer the salary to a foreign account, but there are also employers who do not have this option. Therefore, most employers will give a cash advance, until a Danish bank account is obtained.

Here are some Danish banks with physical headquarters:
