What is 'administrationsgebyr' (management fee)?

Management fee is the fee that all businesses have to pay to the municipality.

Management fee

You have to pay an administration fee for each production number (P-number) that is assigned to your company's CVR number.

The management fee covers the cost of administrative tasks connected to waste handling. The fee is DKK 723 in 2016. + VAT, for each P number. The price is adjusted every year.

The fee covers

The fee covers among other things municipal costs for planning and managing waste plans, price lists and general information about waste management.

The fee does not cover

The management fee does not cover the actual handling of waste from the companies. All companies pay the same amount per P number irrespective of their line of business or company size. The invoice is sent to the electronic post box of the business, the e-Boks.

Your business may be exempt from paying management fee if:

  • your business has an industry code that appears in ‘affaldsbekendtgørelsen’ (waste regulations) annex 8 and has 0-1 employees. When calculating the number of employees, the owner of the business is counted if the owner carries out work for the company. You can find the industry code of your business at www.cvr.dk (in Danish).
  • your business is registered with a type of business form that appears in ‘affaldsbekendtgørelsen’ (waste regulations) annex 9 section 1 and has 0 employees. You can find the business type of you company at www.cvr.dk.
  • your business is registered with a type of business form that appears in ‘affaldsbekendtgørelsen’ (waste regulations) annex 9 section 2 regardless of the number of employees. You can find the business type of you company at www.cvr.dk.
  • your business had an annual turnover of less than DKK 300,000 in the financial year ending two years before the collection year. For public institutions and companies that are not subject to VAT (‘moms’), the turnover is calculated from payroll information.

The municipality may charge fees from companies, which are exempted under these provisions if they are using one or more collection schemes in the municipality.
