Construction industry

Dantax has been a consultant to the Danish construction industry in Germany for several years. We assist a large number of Danish suppliers and main contractors on plant and construction projects in Germany.

Whether VAT, taxes, construction withholding tax (Bauabzugsteuer) or registration processes, we provide comprehensive advice on complex matters as well as on routine tasks such as  payroll accounting and bookkeeping.

In our payroll accounting department, Dantax has specialised expertise regarding wages and salaries in the German construction industry, an area which usually constitutes a considerable challenge.

Facts on German wages and salaries

A Danish company that does not have a branch office or subsidiary in Germany may employ a German employee who lives and works in Germany. This employment is governed by German employment and labour laws, and the employer must report and pay German tax and social security contributions on that part of the work that is performed in Germany.

However, this usually involves several factors, and we recommend that you seek advice in advance from Dantax – to avoid expensive mistakes.

We have the experience and speak your language.
