Double housekeeping

An employee who has a double housekeeping can deduct DKK 400 per week. No documentation is needed for this. If you want a higher deduction, you need to be able to prove your expenses with documentation.

This deduction applies if the following requirements are fulfilled:

  • You must maintain double housekeeping for reasons related to Work;
  • Your work must be temporary (fixed term);
  • You must be married, cohabiting or a single parent;
  • The distance between the homes must be such that having to travel back and forth every day would not be reasonable;
  • You can use the deduction for double housekeeping for a maximum period of two years;
  • You cannot get a deduction for double housekeeping and food and accommodation (i.e. per diem) at the same time.
