Understanding the calculations behind the Denmark Recruitment Cost Calculator 2023

Whether you are the Director of a multi-million organisation, setting up a new company in Denmark , or have a business venture in Denmark, knowing where your money goes and how much you spend on employment resources is essential. Staff costs in Denmark are one of the biggest expenditures for a company, but it isn’t just wages that cost the business money, there are additional expenditures, known more commonly as 'on-costs' or 'onboarding-costs'.

Calculating the true cost of an employee in Denmark can seem very complex but, as with most financial calculations with multiple elements, they can each be placed into simple cost buckets which allow us to provide a simple working formula:

tce = sc + bc + oc + fc


  • tce = The True Cost of an Employee in Denmark
  • sc = Salary Costs in Denmark
  • bc = Benefit Costs in Denmark
  • oc = Onboarding Costs in Denmark
  • fc = Facilities in Denmark

Each of these costs includes a number of sub elements which are defined within the calculator where you can enter specific amounts or a percentage rate for benchmarking expenditure. Please review the supporting guide "Calculating the 'True Cost of an Employee in Denmark' in 2023" which explains the associated costs computed within this calculator.

The True Cost of an Employee in Denmark Calculator is similar to the Cost Per Hire Calculator with the addition of live income tax and salary deductions for an employee working in Denmark in 2023.
