Recommended minimum salary for private employees (including pension, if applicable) for 2018

The calculation for the recommended minimum salary for private employees is based on the average salary of the youngest employees in the private sector in the 2016 salary statistics plus the expected price trend for the coming year.

  • Masters graduates (in engineering and other natural sciences) and other members with long-cycle post-secondary degrees DKK 38,700
