Payment to Skattestyrelsen for portable batteries

(The Danish Tax Agency)

In addition to registration and administration fees to be paid to DPA-System producers and importers of portable batteries  are also charged with a payment to Skattestyrelsen (The Danish Tax Agency). This amount is to cover costs incurred by local authorities relating to collection of portable batteries from private households.

The  fee rate for quantities put on the market is published on the Danish EPA's homepage annually. See link at your right

Who and what?

All producers and/or importers having put portable batteries on the market in the previous year must in the period from early January to 15 February report quantities of portable batteries in kilos to Skattestyrelsen (The Danish Tax Agency) and pay the amount due from this quantity based on the annual fee rate.

Kilos means the exact weight of batteries or accumulators in kilograms including the weight of the electrolyte, excluding, for instance, the weight of the appliances into which the battery has been incorporated, and excluding the weight of sales packaging, instructions and similar.
