Amendment of the Danish Companies Act

The Danish Companies Act has now been in operation for two years, and, as already announced at the commencement of the Act on 1 March 2010, the Act is to be evaluated after its first two years of operation. 

Running to 280 pages, the comprehensive bill proposes several technical changes and language-related clarifications, but also a few substantive amendments, for instance:

  • Reduction of the capital requirement for private limited companies to DKK 50,000.
  • The possibility of establishing an “entrepreneurial company” (a private limited company (ApS) without a minimum capital)
  • Rules governing cross-border transfer of registered office

The consultation period ends on 25 January, and the final bill is expected to be tabled at the end of February.
