The annual statement from SKAT

As Danes, we are all familiar with SKAT and every year we receive an annual statement from them. But what is an annual statement and why is it important? In this article, we will go through what an annual statement is, where you can find it and how it differs from an advance tax return.

What is an annual statement?

An annual statement from SKAT is a statement of your taxable income and the taxes you have paid during the previous year. The statement includes your total income, deductions, tax rate and taxes paid during the year. If you have received other types of income, such as interest income, earned income, capital income or pension, you must declare this in your annual statement.

An annual statement is an important statement that all Danes have to deal with every year. It is important to ensure that the information in the annual statement is correct, as it can have an impact on your finances. If you have paid too much tax, you will receive a refund from SKAT, and if you have paid too little tax, you will have to pay extra.

To avoid misunderstandings or errors in your annual tax return, you should always make sure that all information is correct and up to date. If you discover an error, you can contact SKAT to have the information corrected.

Where on SKAT can I see my annual statement?

You can find your annual tax return on the SKAT website under your personal profile.

Follow these steps to view your annual statement:

  • Go to skat.dk
  • Then log in with NemID / MitID
  • Then click on Annual statement in the menu
  • For example, if you get a refund, it will say: "You should get a refund: X.XXX kr."

It is a good idea to review your annual tax return and make sure the information is correct. If there are errors or omissions in your annual statement, you should contact SKAT and have them corrected. This may affect your finances, and it is therefore important to ensure that the information is correct.

Annual statement vs. withholding tax statement

An annual statement differs from an advance payment statement in several ways. While an annual statement is a statement of your taxable income and tax payments for the previous year, an advance statement is a statement of your expected income and tax payments for the coming year.

An advance tax return is an important factor in planning your finances for the coming year. It shows how much tax you are expected to pay during the year, which can affect how much you can spend on various expenses.

In summary, an annual statement is a statement of your taxable income and tax payments
