Danish Maritime Officers has responded in the hearing about the Tax Assessment Act §33A, also called the engineer scheme, which looks to be abolished in connection with the new tax reform. In its present form, the change will impair Denmark’s ties with valuable, international networks, and force Danish ship officers – who have until now been working under §33A – to move abroad permanently, writes the union on its website.

“We have discussed the repeal of the Tax Assessment Act §33A with several of our members currently working under the scheme, and they have hinted that a repeal of §33A means they will have to settle down abroad permanently,” says Mille Bondo Meyer, attorney at Danish Maritime Officers.
