Invoicing as a private person

1. Insurance

There are at least two types insurances, and maybe even three that you need to keep track of when you write an invoice as a private person:

Liability insurance

Liability insurance is if you cause damage to other people's things or people.

Personal injury in particular can trigger very high compensation claims, so it is important that the insurance is in place.

You may already have liability insurance in connection with your contents insurance.

It varies from insurance to insurance, but most private liability insurance does not cover during the performance of a profession.

This means that when you do work you invoice for, you are actually carrying out a business, and such cases are not covered by your insurance.

Accident insurance

Accident insurance covers you if you yourself are injured.

Just like with liability insurance, there is a difference from insurance to insurance, but the vast majority of accident insurances only cover you in your free time, and not when you carry out business.

If you are injured while carrying out the work you are invoicing for, you will not receive compensation for lost working ability and the like.

It is therefore important to check that your accident insurance covers you full-time, i.e. also when you carry out your profession.

Advisor insurance

If you advise your clients, it may be necessary to have adviser insurance, in the event that adviser liability arises in connection with the advice you have given.

✅ Checklist for insurance:

  • Check whether your liability insurance covers during the performance of business
  • Also check whether your accident insurance is full-time
  • Alternative sign business research, price approx. DKK 1500-2500 per year.
  • If you carry out counseling, a advisor insurance also be required

2. Tax

When you write an invoice as a private person, there is no settlement taxes of the money you receive.

You must therefore settle your tax yourself. Put any 50% aside, or pay your tax regularly so that there is no unpleasant surprise later in the form of an unforeseen back tax.

How to report your income for tax:

Either your customer reports the amount they transfer to you to Tax as b income.

If the company does not report your income as b-tax, you must do it yourself.

You either add the amount to your advance statement, or you correct your tax return for the year in which you have income.

Regardless of which option you choose, remember to take into account the tax that remains to be paid, so that there is no unpleasant surprise later on.

✅ Checklist for Tax for private invoicing:

  • Does your client report your income as b-income or do you have to do it yourself?
  • Take into account that no tax has been paid on the money you receive. Put any aside or pay in continuously.

3. VAT and amount limits

If you sell for more, you must be registered for VAT and have a CVR no.

4. Expenses

You can deduct operating expenses from your income.

It is defined as "expenses incurred to acquire, secure and maintain the year's income".

This means that your expenses must have a direct correlation between your expenses and the income for which you send an invoice.

You cannot have a "deficit" in your b income, so your expenses must not exceed your income.

Deductions

Some expenses are only partial deductible.

For example, if you use your equipment 50% in connection with your b income and 50% in private, you may only deduct the 50%.

Since you are not VAT registered, you cannot get a refund for your purchase VAT.

REMEMBER!! That all expenses must could be documented, including their relevance to the income you have. Therefore, remember to save all attachments.

5. Driving

Driving allowance

You cannot be paid tax-free driving allowance when you receive your fee as B income.

If you invoice your customer for driving, it will be taxed as ordinary income.

The first 24 km per day does not trigger a deduction – from 25-120 km. per day triggers a deduction of DKK 3.79 per km. (2024).

You must document and enter your driving, in connection with either your tax return or advance statement.

✅ Checklist for driving:

  • Remember to keep a log of your driving. You must enter what the odometer read at the start and at the end of the trip, the total number of km and what the purpose of the trip was.

6. How do you make an invoice as a private person?

Setting up an invoice as a private person is a relatively simple process.

We have created an invoice template that complies with the legislation, which you can download completely free of charge.

If you throw yourself into creating an invoice, you must remember to pay attention to what your invoice should contain.

Follow the checklist here to make sure you get everything.

There are a number of legal requirements that you must be aware of when you want to create an invoice as a private person.

The invoice must therefore clearly state:

  • The issue date – also referred to as the invoice date
  • Invoice number – it must be consecutive, i.e. you cannot jump in the order as you see fit
  • CPR number of you as the seller
  • Name and address of you as the seller
  • Your customer's name, address and CVR number (if it is a company)
  • Specification of the item or service – this is also called invoice lines
  • VAT base and discounts
  • Price excluding VAT
  • Price including VAT – when you invoice as a private person, there is no VAT and this figure is therefore the same as, for example, VAT
  • Payment deadline and details of payment

How to invoice through Factofly

If you do your tasks through Factofly, you don't have to do invoices, accounting, etc. yourself. We send the invoice for you and pay you the usual salary for the task.

Send your first invoice through Factofly

7. Especially for you who are on daily allowance

You can invoice up to DKK 50,000 per year in your CPR number - it's called Leisure Activity.

After DKK 50,000, you must create a CVR no.

This is how you will be offset against your daily allowance

You will be offset hour by hour on your daily allowance card for both invoicing with CPR and CVR.

When you create a CVR no, your unemployment benefit entitlement is shortened to 30 weeks (unless you have already used up your supplementary unemployment benefit).

The 30 weeks count for each week from when you have created a CVR number - the exception is if you do not receive unemployment benefit for an entire calendar month.

B-Honorary

You can also receive a so-called b-fee for an assignment. Work with b-fee is considered ordinary work.

Here, your fee is calculated for hours based on a set hourly rate in relation to how many hours you are offset against unemployment benefits. With the a-boxes it is called, among other things, uncontrollable income.

The conversion takes place according to the Danish Agency for Labor Market and Recruitment (STAR) rate as per 2024 is 277.76. DKK per hour.

👉 Example of hourly calculation with conversion rate: If you earn DKK 10,000 from your assignment, you will be set off (10,000/277.76) 36 hours in unemployment benefits.

Remember to have documentation for your work, which you must send to the unemployment fund.

Send your first invoice through Factofly

How to use Factofly on unemployment benefits

You get an employment contract and FactoFly reports the number of hours you actually work to the Tax Office, which forwards it to your unemployment insurance fund. So if you invoice DKK 500 per hour for 20 hours (DKK 10,000), then this is what we send to your unemployment fund. This means that you will be offset against the actual number of hours you have worked, namely the 20.

Your working hours count towards your unemployment benefit right away.

There is no maximum on your income when you work freelance through Factofly while you are on unemployment benefits.

8. If your customer does not pay

It can be a little uncomfortable if your customer not paying.

You want to maintain the good relationship and get them as a customer again. Maybe you still work for them.

It may feel easiest to do nothing, but our experience is that the longer time goes by, the harder it is to get the money in.

More often than not, it's just an oversight on the part of the customer, which is quickly put right when you remind them of it.

Start with a friendly reminder

When you send an invoice as a private person, start by sending a friendly reminder, and follow up on the phone as early as 1-2 days after the payment deadline.

If you still do not receive the payment, follow up with another reminder and possibly a reminder fee.

If you have applied a reminder fee, 10 days must pass before you can remind again with a fee.

Last option: debt collection and enforcement

If the customer still does not pay, then the next step is typically debt collection.

The vast majority of debt collection agencies will not take such a case unless you pay for the costs before they start the case - and you only get them back if your customer pays.

Alternatively, you can submit your claim to the bailiff's court, and if your customer does not contest the claim, you can get the bailiff's help in collecting the money.

If your customer disputes the claim at the bailiffs' court, then you have to go through the courts to get their word that you are entitled to the money.

The case will typically be able to be treated as a 'small case', which is cheaper than a normal case.

However, court cases are very often fraught with a large amount of time and costs, so always consider it carefully before taking such a case further.

✅ Checklist for handling non-payment:

  • Jerk immediately. A friendly reminder kept in a good tone.
  • Dialogue, dialogue, dialogue helps far more than a reminder. If the customer does not have all the money, make an installment plan.
  • Claiming money from a bad payer is often associated with costs and a lot of time. Unfortunately, it is also far from certain that you will get your money, so always consider how far you want to go. Is your time better spent finding new paying customers?

With the new bookkeeping act, there are demands for digitization of companies' bookkeeping.

And digital bookkeeping systems must meet certain requirements which make it possible to automate bookkeeping processes and which create greater security for correct bookkeeping. (Source The Danish Business Authority)

When you invoice as a private person, you are does not subject to the requirement for digital bookkeeping. Do you have a PMV, you are also not covered by the requirement for digital bookkeeping, as your turnover is below the amount limit (DKK 50,000) for when a company must book digitally.
