You need a bank account to receive your salary. To open an account, you must have a Danish CPR number and address.
In order to receive payment for your work you need a bank account. If you wish to open a Danish bank account, you must bring documentation of your identity with a photo (passport), your Danish CPR number and address. Some banks also require your employment contract.
As soon as you have a bank account, you must inform your workplace of the details so your salary can be transferred correctly every month. You can also choose to have your salary transferred to a foreign bank account. If you have any doubts on which bank to choose, your employer can recommend one to you.
If you would like to use online banking you need a NemID, which is the login for all public websites and services. Almost all banks offer online and mobile banking once you have obtained you NemID key card.
Most Danes occasionally receive payments from the public sector such as tax refunds or pensions. To make these transfers the Danish authorities use the public payment system Easy Account (NemKonto).
All you need to do is to decide which of your existing Danish bank accounts you wish to use as your Easy Account. If you have several bank accounts, you decide which one you wish to use. If you need help in relation to Easy Account, you can always contact NemKonto, your bank or International Citizen Service.
