Tax Structure in Denmark - Copenhagen Area

I am moving to Denmark in the Copenhagen area and will be working over there.
What amount of taxes do I need to pay if my employer is paying me around 60k-65k dkk per month

Hi,

With that pay, you may be entitled to the highly paid expats-taxation which means that you will be taxated with 31,92 % of your income.

To be intitled to this special taxation, your monthly average income (2017) shall be at least 63,700 kroner net after ATP (the special pension contributions 284 kroner ) has been deducted.

The same involves your own pension contributions.

If you are taxated due to the normal taxation, the calculation looks like this:
Gladsaxe municipality, income 720,000 kroner, tax 237,279 kroner.
Gladsaxe municipality, income 780,000 kroner, tax 265,438 kroner.
Amounts based on you are single.

What is most advantageous to choose (if it is up to you) depends on your personal costs (transport, pension ........)

Let me add:

The holiday system is constructed so:
You earn your days' holiday in the previous calendar year (2017), and the holiday year runs from May - April inclusive (1 May 2018 - 30 April 2019).

That means that if you want to holiday in 2018, you'll have to pay your holiday yourself, and you'll not be entitled to the 31,92 % taxation.

"That means that if you want to holiday in 2018, you'll have to pay your holiday yourself, and you'll not be entitled to the 31,92 % taxation."

This is strange, I am not able get hold of this to be precise... though got a gist of what you are trying to say.

Will research on it more..
