UK Parliament and British flag
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The UK has taken the decision to defer DAC6 reporting by six months

Each EU Member State had until 31 December 2019 to transpose the Directive 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. Our next guide focusses on the UK’s implementation of DAC6.
