Users of tax expenditure estimates should bear in mind that the Inventory records tax expenditures as estimates of revenue that is foregone due to a particular feature of the tax system that reduces or postpones tax relative to a jurisdiction’s benchmark tax system, to the benefit of fossil fuels. Hence, (i) tax expenditure estimates could increase either because of greater concessions, relative to the benchmark tax treatment, or because of a raise in the benchmark itself; (ii) international comparison of tax expenditures could be misleading, due to country-specific benchmark tax treatments.

Fossil Fuel Support - DNKAbstract

DENMARK: GENERAL METADATA
Data documentation
General notes
Denmark’s fiscal year coincides with the calendar year.
Producer Support Estimate
Income derived from oil and natural-gas production is subject to various taxes and fees: the regular corporate income tax; the hydrocarbon tax (a specific tax on income derived from oil and gas production); royalties and compensatory payments; and profit sharing. Payments under the corporate tax are deductible from the hydrocarbon tax base. In addition, the oil pipeline tariff and compensatory fee can be offset against the hydrocarbon tax, but not against the corporate tax base. As of 2014, the corporate income tax amounts to 24.5%. However, in 2013 the Danish parliament passed two bills that will reduce the corporate income tax rate to 22% by 2016. Until January 2014, the hydrocarbon tax regime differentiated between "old" licences granted before January 2004 and "new" licences granted since 1 January 2004. For old licences, hydrocarbon income was subject to a 70% tax rate, but licensees were allowed to offset 25% of their capital expenditure (CAPEX) against their hydrocarbon tax bill over a period of ten years. For new licences, the hydrocarbon income tax was set at 52% and the allowance was granted for 5% of CAPEX over six years. From January 2014 on, this differentiation is now abolished and old licences are treated under the same tax terms as new ones.
