At present, the council is working on the following main tasks:
- A study of the costs of payments in Denmark. The objective of the study is to calculate the social costs of various types of payments that are used most frequently by citizens and firms. The study is an updated version of the analysis "Cost of Payments in Denmark" published by Nationalbanken in 2012 (English version, see Danmarks Nationalbank, cost of payments in Denmark, 2012).
- An expansion of the Danish payments statistics. The objective of the expansion is to obtain significantly better data to assess developments in the payments area. The new statistics will have a broader coverage in terms of players in the market for payments and provide a more detailed division of data than the existing payments statistics. The statistics will be published on a quarterly basis and will be available on the websites of both Danmarks Statistik and Nationalbanken.
