Hakon Iversen and Jens Otto Størup have been named as the directors of the first two boards to be established under Denmark’s reorganisation of the tax administration.

The Danish government plans to replace the tax administration with seven specialised boards. Each will be independently managed and be responsible for one core task.

Iversen will be the director for the Assessment Board in Roskilde, while Størup will head the Motor Authority in Aalborg.

Iversen joins from the Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing, where he was the head of the department. His assessment board will be responsible for ensuring that the public assessments of properties and land are fair and transparent. The board will employ approximately 600 people.

Størup comes into his new role from Nordjyllands Trafikselskab, a traffic company, where he was the managing director. In his new role, he will manage approximately 250 employees to ensure the motor board offers correct, efficient and easy registration, valuation and tax calculation for all motor vehicles.

The other five directors of the new tax administration are expected to be appointed this month. The remaining five boards will cover debt management, the payments of taxes (tax agency), customs duties (customs agency), IT systems and data, and an administrative and service agency offering support functions.
