The 7P Tax Law, a cornerstone of the Danish tax regulation, is designed to encourage share-based employee remuneration. While it creates rewarding opportunities, it can also introduce a labyrinth of complexity for businesses. Here at Optio Incentives, we're at the forefront of automating and simplifying equity compensation management with our intuitive software solutions. 

A Snapshot of the 7P Tax Law 

Simply put, the 7P Tax Law governs how shares and share-based rights (such as purchase and subscription rights) that employees receive as compensation are taxed. One of the main advantages is that taxation is delayed until the point of sale. The income from these shares is then taxed at either 27% or 42%, depending on the income size. 

However, there are certain stipulations to bear in mind. For instance, board members are not eligible for this scheme. Additionally, the value of the share salary typically shouldn't exceed 10% of an employee's annual salary, although this can be increased to 20% if the share scheme is extended to a minimum of 80% of a company's employees. 


Navigating the Challenges of the 7P Tax Law with Optio’s Software
