Consequences of receiving donations from persons on the Prohibition List
It is prohibited to receive one or more donations whose total value exceed DKK 10,000 within the time frame of 12 consecutive months from a natural or juridical person who has been admitted to the Prohibition List. Individuals or organizations in Denmark who violate the prohibition on receiving donations from a person who has been admitted to the Prohibition List against donations will be liable to pay a fine, and the donation(s) in question may be confiscated.
The size of the fine will, as a starting point, be set at a value corresponding to 30 percent of the estimated value of the donation.
Obligation to return the donation to the donor
In cases where a recipient becomes aware of having received a donation from a person on the Prohibition List against donations after the donation has already been received, the recipient will have to return the donation to the donor. If this is not possible, the recipient will have to transfer the amount to an account administered by the Immigration Service.
The return/transfer must take place no later than 21 days after the recipient of the donation became aware or should have become aware of the donation received from a person admitted to the Prohibition List against donations.
The Immigration Service must be notified when the transfer to the Immigration Service’ account is being made, in order for the Immigration Service to check whether the donation cannot be returned to the donor.

If the donation is not monetary, the recipient must dispose of the donation and an amount corresponding to the sale price subtracted any expenses associated with the sale must be transferred to an account administered by the Immigration Service before the abovementioned deadline. Before finalizing the sale, the Immigration Service must give its approval in order to secure that the sale corresponds with the donation’s actual value.
Please note that the sales price is decisive in deciding whether a donation exceeds the limit of DKK 10,000.
A fine is issued if the recipient of a donation from a person admitted to the Prohibition List fails to fulfill his/her obligation to either repay the donation to the donor or transfer the amount to an account administered by the Immigration Service.
