How to apply for a DVFA

What is a DVFA license?

A DVFA License, also known as a “Kontrolrapport” gives you the right to handle and transport food in accordance to danish law. This is therefore necessary to be able to deliver orders with Wolt. You can register for a DVFA License quickly online via the Danish Food Administration’s website. It’s really simple to apply and receive your DVFA permit to transport food in a matter of minutes.

In practice, your license is a yellow paper that you need to bring with you physically or digitally when delivering. The Danish Food Administration keeps a registry of all food handlers and on very rare occasions, they might ask yo see your license.

When do you need to pay for a DVFA license?

The DVFA License does not cost anything upfront, but you will be charged a yearly fee, depending on if your  earnings exceed 50,000 DKK over a 365 day period. In this case, a fee of 175 euro must be paid in order to maintain the license and will be billed by the Danish Food administration. 

Please note: it is your own responsibility to VAT register your business with SKAT.DK  if you expect to earn more than 50,000 DKK over a 365 day period.
