DAC6: Ireland releases a new DAC6 Schema but maintains manual filing for LPP reports

The Irish Revenue has released an updated version of the DAC6 Filing Guidelines.

Like many other EU member states, the Revenue has also released a new XML Schema, referred to as Version 1.2. This is in response to the amended DAC6 Central Directory Business Validation Rules by the European Commission. The updated schema can be found here and will apply for all DAC6 reports from 1 August 2021.

To facilitate the migration to the new schema, the Revenue’s electronic filing system for DAC6 on ROS will be unavailable from 1 August 2021. It will reopen on 17 August 2021.

Any DAC6 reports that are protected by legal professional privilege should still be filed via the Revenue’s excel template containing specific information that can be revealed despite privilege.

All the amendments are being updated in VinciWorks’ Omnitrack DAC6 reporting portal.
