Bank Account – 'NemKonto'

When you are going to work in Denmark, you must open a ‘NemKonto’ (‘Easy Account’).

You can make nearly all purchases in Denmark using a credit or a debit card. If you need to withdraw cash you can go to one of the several ATM’s located all over Hjørring. It is also possible to ask for cash when you make a purchase in a store using credit card. Please note that most foreign banks will charge a withdrawal fee when used in Denmark.

When working in Denmark you must have a ‘NemKonto’ (Easy Account). A NemKonto is a normal bank account that you assign as your NemKonto. All citizens in Denmark are required to have a NemKonto.

More or less all Danish employers will pay your wages into your Nemkonto. All payments made by the Danish public authorities e.g. benefits, tax , child subsidies, repayments etc. are made to your NemKonto.

In order for you to open a Nemkonto, you must show up in person at the bank and you must bring:

  • Your Passport
  • Proof of residence in Denmark
  • CPR number/ Taxed at the source’ civil registration number
  • Contract of employment
