Frequently asked questions

How can I benefit from letting LEJKA report my income?
As of 2021, the law requires a third party to report the rental income if your want the higher bottom tax deduction of DKK 30,300. If you report the income yourself, the deduction is DKK 11,900. So you miss out on DKK 18,400 if you do the reporting yourself.

What housing types and rentals does this apply to?
If you rent out one or more rooms, you can benefit from the higher bottom tax deduction, even if the rental periode exceeds 12 months. For year-round housing the rules only apply if the flat or house is rented out during a part of the income year, i.e. a shorter period of less than 12 months. However, the rental period may cover two income years, but the total rental period must always be less than 12 month for the rules about the higher bottom tax deduction to apply.

Is is safe to let LEJKA report the rental income on my behalf?
Yes, it's absolutely safe. The Danish tax authorities (Skattestyrelsen) have confirmed that LEJKA has the legal right to report rental income in accordance with §15 Q of the The Danish Rent Act (lejeloven).

LEJKA replied super fast to my message and explained to me in clear language how the rules work. It took less that 24 hours to sort things out, and now they take care of reporting the income from my tenancy to the tax authorities - and I benefit from the higher deduction rate :-)

We rent out four rooms, so we have a lot on our plate. There is so much practical stuff and paperwork involved, and you don't exactly become a millionaire as a small private landlord. So, the extra tax deduction was a welcome surprise. LEJKA takes care of it for us and it works perfectly.
