Employers’ social security contributions are lower in Denmark than in competing countries and amount to approximately 1 per cent of the normal wage. This means that wage costs are cheaper here.

    Property costs are also markedly lower than in other Scandinavian and European cities, and office space and housing are therefore much more affordable.
