DAC6 training updated to reflect EU Commission’s reporting delay

Register for our DAC6 email updates

DAC6 is a European regulation aimed at tackling tax avoidance and tax evasion, strengthening tax transparency and improving information sharing between EU Member States. The Directive requires lawyers, accountants, tax advisers, bankers and other “intermediaries” to report certain aggressive cross-border arrangements. 

VinciWorks’ DAC6 training is recommended in order to understand the intricacies of these hallmarks and to determine which transactions must be reported.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Commission has confirmed an optional deferral of the implementation of DAC6 by six months. Each member state will now decide whether they will avail themselves of the optional deferral. Most countries are set to defer reporting, with several, including the UK, Ireland and France already having announced their intentions to defer reporting. We will continue to update this blog as more countries decide on whether and how to implement the new timeline.

We have just updated our Advanced and Fundamentals courses to reflect the changes. This will allow users to gain a full understanding of the EU’s reporting timeline.

About our DAC6 training

Our training includes both an advanced course that explains each hallmark in depth along with practical examples and scenarios to test the learner’s understanding and a 10-minute overview of DAC6 legislation, what it is and why you should care.
