With the launch of the Danish base register open data program last October it was announced that the first two milestones were to be achieved by January 2013.

The first milestone was making the Danish base geo data free of charge as of 1 January 2013.
The second step is making the Danish company register accessible free of charge, as of 2 January.

This is not immediately a move to full open data, but removing the charges for accessing data is a hugely important step. Early March a new way of approaching the data set will be available from the Danish company register web site.

The Ministry of Internal Revenue (separate from the Ministry of Finance) is working to release tax information in parallel with information from the company register. It is not entirely clear yet when that data is forthcoming.
