As a wealthy country with a market that has historically been very receptive to UK products and services, Denmark can offer many opportunities for UK businesses. Denmark also has a highly educated and motivated talent pool, with 4 out of 5 people speaking English as a second language and a huge number of university educated citizens; which can in turn be beneficial if you want to work with Danish businesses. Doing business in this nation may also require you to start shipping to Denmark from your UK base of operations, or indeed begin exporting goods – which is where our services can help.

Benefits of Exporting to Denmark

As alluded to above, working with Denmark can be quite advantageous for your business. Denmark’s proximity to mainland Europe can also offer opportunities to extend to wider parts of Scandinavia and the Baltic areas. The country also has one of Europe’s strongest economies and as such it means there can be opportunities for a variety of industries, ranging from manufactured goods, to pharmaceuticals.


Important Customs Information for Denmark

As Denmark is a part of the EU, the same rules and regulations for imports apply as in other member countries across Europe, with no import duties applicable. Customs and excise duties only apply on goods over the value of 3,250 DKK. It’s important to note that this also applies for parts of a whole item, so if for instance you were to ship individual pieces of a product to put together and then operate, the correct duties must be paid to reflect the value of the whole item.

Prohibited items

According to information from VisaHQ, importing endangered animals and plants into Denmark is illegal. As is importing meat or milk from countries outside the EU and protected items including tortoise shell, coral, reptile skin and wood from Amazonian rainforests.


There are special restrictions on certain imports to Denmark. You can request special permission to import certain animals from the Danish Nature Agency and check their rules and regulations here.


There are regulations on the import of both tobacco and alcohol products, with customs having the authority to seize parcels if they believe they are of a commercial nature.


Any items included in any parcels to Denmark which do not comply with the customs regulations will be held or destroyed by customs officials. Anyone found to be breaking the rules on imports will be fined by the customs authority.


Please see the VisaHQ page for full details on prohibited and restricted items, before you begin shipping to Denmark.


Remember though, that when you choose us to manage your deliveries, we can ensure that when you send a parcel to Denmark, your business’ goods will always get to their destination.
