Danish employees at suppliers, shipyards, and equipment manufacturers should have the same tax status as the regular mariners when they are working as fitters or specialists onboard the ships, suggests the government’s growth team in its recommendations for the growth of the maritime sector.
“Deployed fitters work alongside traditional mariners, and will, following the introduction of the ILO convention concerning the conditions of the mariners, be employed under the same conditions as the regular mariners operating the ships. The question is whether they can be similarly employed under the same tax laws. One way would be to look into whether the special tax schemes covering mariners – the DIS legislation and deductions for mariners, for example – could be expanded to include fitters deployed to complete work on the sailing ships,” says the growth team recommendations.
