When a representation agreement has been approved by DBU, an administration fee must be paid by the agent, cf. Circular 117, paragraph 5.2. The size of this administration fee depends on the ranking of the club where the player or club is at the signature of the representation agreement.

If the club is ranked in the Super League, the administration fee will be DKK 2,000 + VAT.

If the club is ranked in the 1st division for men, the administration fee will be DKK 1,500 + VAT.

If the club is ranked in 2nd division or anywhere else, the administration fee will be DKK 1,000 + VAT.
