​Three fees have been set too high. Therefore, you can now apply for a partial refund of those fees.

The Danish Maritime Authority has changed the rates of three fees with effect from 1 January 2019:

  • Fee for wreck removal certificate (fees charged in the period 2015-2018)
  • Reminder fee for overdue payment for ship survey (fees charged in the period 2008-2018)
  • Reminder fee for overdue payment of annual ship registration fee (fees charged in the period 2013-2018)

If you have paid any of these three fees in the years mentioned, you can now apply for a partial fee refund.

The refund procedure will be active until 2028.

Fee – wreck removal certificate

The fee for issue of a wreck removal certificate in the period 2015-2018 was set at DKK 1,250. When recalculating the actual costs, the Danish Maritime Authority determined that the fees should have been as follows:

​Year​Fee charged
​Actual cost
​Excess fee
​2015​DKK 1,250
​DKK 812​DKK 438
2016​​DKK 1,250
​DKK 489
​DKK 761
​2017​DKK 1,250
​DKK 427
​DKK 823
​2018​DKK 1,250
​DKK 435
​DKK 815

Citizens and businesses who have paid for wreck removal certificates issued in 2015 are therefore entitled to a refund of DKK 438 from the Danish Maritime Authority. For certificates issued in 2016, a refund of DKK 761 may be claimed and so on.

Reminder fee – ship survey

The reminder fee for overdue payment for ship surveys in the period 2008-2018 was set at DKK 250. When recalculating the actual costs, the Danish Maritime Authority determined that the fee should have been set at DKK 94.

Citizens and businesses who have paid reminder fees for overdue payment for ship surveys charged in 2008-2018 are therefore entitled to a refund of DKK 156 per reminder fee paid.

Reminder fee – annual ship registration fee

The reminder fee for overdue payment of annual ship registration fees in the period 2013-2018 was set at DKK 250. When recalculating the actual costs, the Danish Maritime Authority determined that the fee should have been set at DKK 76. The Danish Maritime Authority has also established that it was not authorised to charge the second and third reminder fees.

Citizens and businesses who have paid reminder fees for overdue payment of the annual ship registration fees charged in 2013-2018 are therefore entitled to a refund of DKK 174 per first reminder fee paid and, if relevant, DKK 250 per second and third reminder fees paid.
