Shell’s footprint

Shell has been active in Denmark since 1913. In 2021, the sale of A/S Dansk Shell, including the refining business and local trading activities, to PL ESG Denmark Co APS (Postlane Partners) was completed. Shell EP Holdingselskab Danmark ApS holds 100% of the shares in Shell Egypt NV. In 2022, Shell transferred all remaining investments, including the Shell Egypt NV shares, to other Shell entities and Shell EP Holdingselskab Danmark ApS is in the process of being liquidated.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Denmark is 22%. Margins in 2021 were not as high as they were prior to COVID-19. There were tax losses brought forward from earlier years but these could only be partially offset under limitations specified in Danish legislation hence a small tax liability remained.

Corporate income tax
This is a direct tax imposed on companies’ profits. It is sometimes levied at a national level but can also be levied on a state or local basis.
