Starting a business is easier said than done, here is a guide on what to do.
As a business owner, you have a CVR no. It is a unique and personal number for your company. It can be compared to a CPR no.


CVR is short for Det Centrale Virksomhedsregister (The Central Company Register) and is a register containing information about all Danish businesses and companies. All CVR registered businesses have a number of identification, which can be compared to a personal CPR-number. This register contains all the basic information about the company connected to the CVR-number such as name, address, start- and possibly end date, branch, and much more.

As a general rule, all companies in Denmark must have a CVR-number, though there are exceptions for companies with a turnover of less than 50.000 kr. per year, as they are not required to register for a CVR-number.

The advantage of having a CVR-number is, among other things, that partners and customers find the company trustworthy as well as the company being able to deduct its expenses from the taxes.

Company types

A company type is a way to organize your company. There are several different company types; you need to be aware of how you want to organize your company before you choose, as each type has different demands that need to be met.

Overall, a company is an independent legal entity. Generally, creditors can only take outlays in the share capital. Therefore, there is no personal liability for the owners unless they have provided a guarantee for the company.

Startup Central recommends that you contact a lawyer – even though VIRK has a thorough guide, many people do not fill out all the fields correctly. Startup Central has partners that you can get some good deals through.
