If you move from Denmark to your home country or to another country, you must report the relocation to the Civil Registration System. This can be done by filling in a leaving form and submitting it to your municipality of residence. You must also hand over your health insurance card. Read more.
You can have your pension paid out abroad. Please contact your pension company, your pension fund or your financial institution in order to learn more about your pensions.
Please notice that you can not have your ATP Livslang Pension paid out if you leave Denmark. Read what to do at ATP Livslang Pension.
Before you leave you have to complete form no. 04.029. SKAT will then determine if you are liable to pay tax in Denmark. Please notify SKAT of your new address so they can send documents related to your tax.

When you are no longer registered or working for a Danish employer, you can have your holiday money paid out.
FerieKonto will automatically pay out your holiday money if you have a NemKonto (easy account) or if you have registered a Danish bank account number with FerieKonto.
You can also choose to have your holiday money transferred to a foreign account - then you need to write a letter to Feriekonto. Read more about which information to include here.

Before leaving Denmark, you must deregister your vehicle in the Danish Register of Motor Vehicles. If you have paid registration tax, you can apply for a refund.
Upon your departure, you have to hand over your license plates to SKAT, and you must notify one of the four Central Motor Registry Offices (“Motorcentre”) in Denmark. Your notice must include a copy of the vehicle’s original registration certificate (Part I and Part II) and registration form 21.044.
Please note that the authorities may demand a vehicle inspection of the car.
