Bank accounts and NemKonto (Easy Account)
When you receive salary from your employer it is useful to have a bank account. To open a bank account, you need to contact a bank of your own choice. Remember to bring photo ID (for instance your passport) and address information.
You can only open a bank account with a Danish bank once you have obtained your tax card. As you are not a registered citizen in Denmark, the bank will want to see your:
- Tax card
- Contract of employment and payslip
As a resident in Denmark, you will need to have a NemKonto assigned to be able to receive payments from Danish public authorities – for instance payments such as tax refunds, child subsidies, student loans, unemployment benefits or holiday allowances.
A NemKonto is a normal bank account. You choose yourself which of your accounts – foreign or Danish – you want to be your NemKonto. Payments from public authorities will be transferred directly to this account.Content fetched from lifeindenmark.borger.dk
