Deadlines for payment agreement
If you wish a payment agreement, is there several things that you have to be aware of in relation to repayment:
- You must repay a minimum of DKK 250 (2014) per month.
- If you owe money for day care, the maximum repayment period is 24 months.
- If you owe money for an amount which is partly subsidized by central government – such as housing benefits – the maximum repayment period is 18 months.
- If you owe money for maintenance payments, the maximum repayment period is 12 months.
- If you owe money for property tax, the maximum repayment period is 3 months.
If you do not react to reminders
If you do not react to reminders sent by the City of Copenhagen or if you are in breach of the agreement, the Danish Tax Agency will collect the money without further warning.
The Danish Tax Agency has the right to collect your debt directly from your income.
Once the City of Copenhagen has forwarded its claim for collection by the Danish Tax Agency, the City of Copenhagen will no longer be able to make an agreement with you.
