Danish Maritime Officers will take legal action against what they have characterized as illegal government subsidies directed at Danish shipping companies. The outcome of the lawsuit could potentially carry great consequences for The Danish International Ship Register (DIS), says Danish Maritime Officers.
“When the shipping companies decline to fix the net salaries of seafarers in consideration of tax exemption, they violate not only paragraph five of the law on taxation of seafarers, but also article 107 of the EU treaty as well as the EU’s sanction of the DIS-scheme as legal subsidies,” writes Danish Maritime Officers in a press release.
