New digital guide makes it easier to find your way through the rules when hiring foreign employees.

Employers who wish to hire foreign employees can now find help from the Danish language digital guide Virk Assistenten to find their way through the many rules and complete the relevant applications and registrations necessary to make sure the both the employer and the employee follow the rules and employee is ready to receive his or her salary.

For many smaller companies, it can be difficult to find out what you need to be aware of when hiring an employee from another country - both the rules that apply to you as the employer and the applications and registrations that the employee must complete to be able to work in Denmark.

The Danish Business Authority has therefore, together with the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI), developed a digital guide. The guide is targeted at you who are an employer and want to help your future foreign employee through this process.

The guide gives you the opportunity to help your foreign employee through the necessary applications and registrations, so that both you and the employee can comply with the rules and you can pay the salary to the employee.
