Denmark -EU pressure on taxation of workers abroad -December 05, 2013

Workers who pursue their work part of the year in nearby EU countries will be given the full tax deduction following pressure from the EU. Until now, Danes who earned some of their income in another EU member state had their annual tax deduction reduced for the time they spent working abroad. Individual member states are responsible for setting their own tax laws, but the European Commission argued that the rule made it less attractive for Danes to work in another country. According to the Commission the policy violates EU residents' right to free movement, and after pressure the tax minister has decided to change this policy.
