Invoice template

According to the Annual Accounts Act and SKAT, every sale must be documented by an invoice. Most companies today use an accounting program with built-in invoice and invoice templates.

We always recommend that you as a company make use of a professional accounting program - but if you do not have one, you can download our invoice template.

Reminder template

If you find that your customer has failed to pay one or more invoices, there are several options for reminders. You can send a reminder by phone, email, letter or any other communication channel. With a reminder (also known as a reminder letter), you make the debtor aware of the amount owed - in case the debtor has accidentally forgotten about the outstanding amount.

According to the Danish Interest Act and the Danish Debt Collection Act, there are no requirements as to whether you as a creditor impose reminder fees on your dunning letter. However, if you do, there are some requirements and formalities that you must comply with. If you do not, your reminder is not valid.

We have prepared a reminder template that complies with all the requirements and rules on how a reminder letter should be drafted. The reminder template is free of charge.

Collection notice template

In all debt collection, a debt collection notice (also known as a demand letter) must be sent in advance to ensure that the debtor is made aware of your outstanding balance - and thus possible debt collection if the debtor still does not pay.

There are a few rules you should follow when sending a debt collection notice. We have prepared a professional and free template for a debt collection notice. The template makes it easy for you to send a debt collection notice.

Template for a letter of demand

The demand letter is also popularly known as a debt collection notice - in other words, it is a written demand (notice) that debt collection may occur - if payment is not made.

A letter of demand contains a few, but very important requirements to be valid.

We have prepared a letter of claim template. A template that complies with all applicable requirements and rules for a letter of claim is valid.

Debt declaration template

If you're struggling with a bad payer or otherwise have a financial dispute with a customer, it's always good to have this documented in writing - through an invoice, a promissory note or a statement of indeb tedness.

With a statement of debt, where you sign as the creditor and your customer as the debtor, you have a valid document where the customer acknowledges a debt to you.

In other words, it means that the claim is no longer a simple claim (such as an invoice) and the claim is no longer time-barred after 3 years - but after 10 years.

A statement of debt can be used, for example, in debt collection, where the debtor is unable to pay all or part of the debt now - but acknowledges that he or she owes you an amount.

A declaration of debt thus has the same legal effect as a judgment - which also expires after 10 years. 

We've created a template for a professional statement of debt, which of course complies with current legislation.
