Digital post - Foreign company

It will be mandatory from 
November 1st 2013 for all companies with a danish CVR number to receive Digital Post from the public.

What is Digital Post?
There has been developed a digital mailbox to handle secure digital communication between Danish authorities and CVR registered companies in order to make an easier and faster dialogue. It is the company's responsibility to read the Digital Post hence a digital letter pursuant to the law have the same status as a physical letter. The Danish company e-Boks is the supplier of the Digital Post-solution. Virk.dk/postkasse (postkasse = mailbox) is another entrance to the Digital Post mailbox run by the Danish business Authority.

After you have set up the Digital Post you should also make sure your new digital mailbox will inform about new Digital Post from the public by mail to your normal email address. This will help you to be kept up to date.
