I will change address. How can I inform the tax authorities?

Submitting a change of address

Private (resident) individuals

You do not need to submit a change of address to the tax authorities. If you change address, you notify your municipal authority. The tax authorities use the municipal authority's data, and is thus automatically updated on your change of address.

Please note:

If you wish to use a postal address that is not the same as your home address, you need to send a letter to the tax office that handles your tax affairs.


As a business owner, you must notify the Chamber of Commerce of your change of address. The Chamber of Commerce will forward the information to the tax authorities.

Please note:

It is possible that you have a postal address that is not the same as the address where your business is located. In some cases the tax authorities do send post, such as a final notice or user name and password, to your business location.


If you are a non-resident, you can use a special form to submit a change of address. This form can be found here


If you are a client of Expatax please also inform us about your change of address.
