Step 6 - Information about Tax residency – Private individuals

Danish banks are required to identify and register whether a customer is tax resident* (that is, fully tax liable) in a country/countries other than Denmark. Please complete the section below to inform us of the country or countries in which you are tax resident and of your tax identification number (TIN). *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. In some countries, however, a person may be considered tax resident even if the person is stationed in another country, for example, if the person maintains a home or has his or her family in the country. A person may be tax liable in the US, for example, if he/she was born there, has US citizenship or holds a work permit (Green Card) there.
