AP Møller Mærsk


AP Møller Mærsk profit after the first half of 2022 is 117 billion DKK. The company does not pay corporation tax on the income made from shipping. They pay the 4% tonnage tax instead. So, despite historically high profits, very little goes into the coffers of the state. Now, there is demand from the political class to rethink the tonnage tax. 

  • To compare, AP Møller-Maersk paid 4,5 billion DKK tax last year, while Novo Nordisk paid 14,7 billion DKK last year. Novo Nordisk made 48,7 billion DKK profit while AP Møller-Maersk made 117 billion DKK.
