Please register information about the purpose(s) for your account relationship with us and about your sources of income and wealth. We need to understand the value of your assets, including any real property and vehicles you may own, your investments and your savings.

Step 6 - Information about Tax residency - Private individuals

Danish banks are required to identify, register and report to the Danish Tax Authority whether their customers are tax residents in countries other than Denmark. A person is generally tax resident in the country in which he or she lives or spends more than 183 days over any 12-month period. If you are an American citizen or you are born in the US, you are always considered tax resident in the US. A customer can therefore be tax resident in more countries at the same time. The information is collected for tax reporting purposes.

Tax residency in Denmark
US citizenship/tax residency

Do you have US citizenship or are you tax resident in the US for other reasons (for example, because you were born in the US or hold a US work permit (Green Card))?
