About the newsletter
The new Danish Insurance Premium Tax Act (lov om afgift på skadesforsik-ringer) entered into force on 1 January 2013. At the same time the Danish Stamp Duty Act (lov om stempelafgift) was repealed. The insurance premium tax applies to policies incepted on or after 1 January, which cover risks located in Denmark.
This newsletter provides information on the insurance premium tax ("IPT") regis-tration process for international insur-ance companies and payment of Danish IPT on policies covering risks located in several jurisdictions.
