In order to understand the Danish salary level you must understand the Danish income taxation and social security contributions system.
Every day during the year we receive requests from expat wishing to know if the salary level offered from a possible Danish employer is in accordance with the fair market value based on education, personal skills and work experience etc.
The Danish salary level is high compared to most other countries. The reason for the very high salary level is the special Danish labour market and tax structure due to high personal income tax and very low social contribution costs for both employer and employee. Please read the article "Understanding the Danish tax system".
