Legislation on reminders

The Interest Act prescribes the following guidelines:

  • You may require a late fee of no more than DKK 100 per letter
  • A maximum of three reminders fees relating to the same claim. An additional collection fee of DKK 100 can be charged regarding the transfer to debt collection
  • It is not imposed on the creditor to send reminders. The law merely provides that a maximum of three reminder fees can be charged, if the creditor chooses to do so.
  • At least one collection notice needs to be sent before the debt is placed for collection
  • There must be a payment deadline of 10 days
