Production – set-up, operation and exit

Is your company considering starting up production in Germany? And does your company belong to one of the typical Danish or Scandinavian export sectors such as metals, synthetics, foods, pharmaceutical products, software, or the automotive industry? Dantax will help you achieve your objective in a secure manner.

We are experts regarding the special conditions and challenges you will face when setting up and operating a manufacturing company in Germany. This usually involves VAT, taxes, and reporting, but quite often you will also face other challenges south of the border. Dantax will gladly solve these for you as well.

As a manufacturing company you need, among other things, to deal with conditions of employment other than those in Denmark or other Scandinavian countries. You should also expect that, for example, the production chain and co-operation with suppliers may not be exactly the same as at home.

However, you should not let these challenges hold you back. Dantax employees have years of experience in handling similar tasks for other Danish and Scandinavian manufacturing companies. We ensure a trouble-free set-up phase and a daily operations phase where we deal with all the challenges that arise.


Dantax is available also when you are planning your exit from Germany. In terms of formalities, it may require more steps to terminate your involvement in Germany. We will advise you on, for example, deregistration, reporting, etc., concerning the closure of your activities in Germany.

    Marked differences between Danish and German employment conditions

    A Danish company without branch offices or subsidiaries in Germany may employ a German employee who lives and works in Germany. 

    This employment is governed by German employment and labour laws, and for that part of the work which takes place in Germany, the employer must report and pay German tax and social security contributions.

    However, several factors play into this, and to avoid expensive mistakes, it is well worth the effort to seek advance guidance from Dantax.

    We have the experience, and we speak your language.
