The wage tax and lack of qualified IT specialists is pushing Danish jobs in the financial sector abroad. Over 3,000 jobs are potentially at risk, and Denmark risks losing some of its international leading positions in different areas of the financial industry.

For the sector to thrive in the coming years, supporting framework policies is crucial. In this context, it will be important to address the skill gap of IT specialists in the Danish educational system and find a replacement for the Danish wage tax on employees in the financial sector.
