The Danish government protects the DIS Register and the tonnage tax

Danish shipping companies can heave a sigh of relief. Minister for Business and Growth Ole Sohn (SF) states to ShippingWatch that there will be no changes to the Danish International Ship Register (DIS) or the tonnage tax.

The Danish government is not planning any changes to the Danish International Ship Register or the tonnage tax, the two vital economic framework conditions for Danish shipping companies. On the contrary, the Minister for Business and Growth Ole Sohn (SF) tells ShippingWatch that the framework conditions are important to the maritime cluster and it is not on the government’s agenda to make any changes to the two systems.

“They exist and they will continue to do so. They are not on our agenda, and therefore we have no plans to change them,” says Ole Sohn.
