DAC6 - New Reporting of Cross-Border Transactions

By John Cuddigan and Mark Barrett
12 February 2021

DAC6 (Council Directive 2018/822) is a new EU mandatory disclosure regime that imposes mandatory reporting of certain cross-border arrangements that could potentially be used for tax planning. The regime went “live” in Ireland on 1 January 2021 with the first reporting deadline of 31 January 2021 already having passed.

Due to the expansive definition of ‘cross-border arrangements’, DAC6 applies to a very broad range of transactions and will impact extensively on intermediaries and taxpayers. It is essential that all accountants, tax advisers, solicitors, financial advisers, in-house counsel and taxpayers familiarise themselves with their reporting obligations and adopt compliance procedures to cope with the impact of DAC6.
