To register a new ApS company in Denmark, it is required to complete the registration process with the Danish Enterprise Authority and pay a minimum of DKK 40,000 as the share capital.
The equity deposited as share capital in a new ApS company belongs to the company and not the owners. However, the owners are allowed to utilize this equity for various company expenses, paying salaries, and providing dividends to shareholders.
Although borrowing money from the company is not illegal for its owner, it is generally not recommended due to unfavorable taxation that comes with it.

When starting a new ApS company in Denmark, you can choose to deposit the minimum required share capital of DKK 40,000 in cash or as a non-cash deposit of assets such as inventory, goods, or even a car. Depositing cash is the simplest and quickest method. However, if you decide to deposit non-cash assets, the process is more complex and expensive. You'll need to hire an auditor to evaluate and verify the value of the items you want to deposit. This results in an additional cost of between DKK 5,000 - 15,000 + VAT. Furthermore, it can be challenging to find an auditor willing to perform this type of audit. Therefore, it's typically recommended to invest the necessary equity in cash and, later on, sell any assets you wish to deposit in the company and pay yourself using the equity. This method is easier and more cost-effective.
