Managing DAC6 successfully
The DAC6 Directive (EU) 2018/822 requires EU Member States to impose compulsory reporting obligations on intermediaries and taxpayers in relation to cross-border tax arrangements. Here you will find all the information you need about the regulatory framework, the challenges involved and our portfolio of DAC6 services.
Retroactive reporting obligation means the clock is ticking even faster
What makes DAC6 an even bigger issue is the fact that taxpayers and intermediaries do not just have to report future transactions, but also some that have already been completed. In cases where implementation of the arrangement began at any point between 25 June 2018 and 1 July 2020, the information must be reported by 31 August 2020. Therefore, we recommend taking appropriate action now rather than leaving it until later.

DAC6 – Proposal for postponing reporting deadlines
On 8 May 2020, the European Commission published a proposal to amend the Directive on Administrative Cooperation (2011/16/EU), last amended by the DAC6 Directive, and therefore defer the deadlines of the reporting obligation due to the COVID-19 pandemic burden by three months. The proposal is expected to appear on the agenda of the next ECOFIN meeting on 19 May 2020.
