The child benefit payments are to be reduced by 2% for each kroner earned above DKK 700,000.

The environmental allowance to be increased by 50% to encourage taxpayers to purchase eco-friendly vehicles.

The tax-free travel expenses allowance for employees to be reduced from DKK 50,000 to DKK 25,000 per annum.

The reform also proposes to tighten foreign tax credit rules.
