I was recently awarded a MSCA postdoctoral fellowship to conduct research at the university of Copenhagen in Denmark, and I am now trying to figure out the taxes on the fellowship. It boils down to a couple of questions:
- In some countries (like my home country of Belgium), no income tax is paid on the mobility and family allowances. Is it similar in Denmark or are both allowances added to the salary and then taxed?
- I've been going through blog posts and some claim that their employer withholds some of the basic salary as overhead, even before income tax is calculated, effectively reducing the amount that is stated in the MSCA guidelines. I cannot seem to find anything on the website of the university of Copenhagen whether or not this is the case.
In short, I cannot find specific information for the calculation of taxes on the different allowances (salary, mobility, family) in Denmark. Is there some information out there?
