Register for our DAC6 email updates

Latvian Parliament
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Latvia has chosen to delay DAC6 reporting by six months

Each EU Member State had until 31 December 2019 to transpose DAC6 into local laws and legislation. A letter of formal notice was issued by the EU Commission to 15 EU Member States detailing the infringements of DAC6 application into local law.

We are publishing a series of guides on how each EU member state is implementing DAC6. These guides will cover each country’s decision regarding postponing DAC6 reporting by up to six months. The guide provides a preview to our full up-to-date country-by-country guide to DAC6.

Our next guide focusses on Latvia’s implementation of DAC6.
