For packaging with secondary marking, you have paid the deposits when purchasing the self-adhesive deposit marks. Reporting is necessary to enable Dansk Retursystem to collect the correct fees.

You can choose to pay an average operating fee by not reporting your actual sales. Alternatively, you may report at a detailed level and pay the fees based on your actual sales. Please note that the type of reporting you choose is binding for the current calendar year.

No reporting

Choosing “no reporting” may be advantageous if:

  • you want to minimize administration; and
  • the average fees payable for your specific mix of packaging types are lower than the fixed fees.

If you choose “no reporting”, you pay average fees, the deposit amount and the production costs when you purchase self-adhesive deposit marks. You do not need to report your sales afterwards.

“No reporting” eases the administrative burden for many companies, especially for importers and producers, but it also means that Dansk Retursystem cannot calculate whether you have paid too much or too little in fees. You therefore pay an average operating fee.

This type of reporting may have disadvantages, however, if the average fees payable for your specific mix of packaging are considerably higher than the operating fees. In this situation, you may choose “detailed reporting”.

Detailed 4-week reporting

Choosing “Detailed 4-week reporting” may be advantageous if:

  • the operating fees for your specific mix of packaging are lower than the average fees;
  • you want Dansk Retursystem to calculate your fees regularly based on your actual sales; and
  • you already have an IT system that can assist you in managing detailed reporting.

For this type of reporting, you only pay the deposit amounts and the cost of producing the labels when purchasing the self-adhesive deposit marks. Every 4 weeks you must report to Dansk Retursystem how many items of packaging with secondary marking that you sell per product (GTIN number) to each of your customers. You then pay fixed fees based on the actual sales.
