Administrative Cooperation Directive 6 (DAC6)

Verwijderen Favoriet Opslaan

On 25 May 2018, the Council of the European Union formally adopted a directive amending Directive 2011/16/EU on the automatic and mandatory exchange of information on taxation concerning cross-border transactions that must be declared. This Directive has been referred to as ‘Administrative Cooperation Directive 6’ or ‘DAC6’.

In a nutshell, the DAC6 obliges ‘intermediaries’ (i.e. taxpayers) to identify certain transactions with potentially aggressive tax planning. This obligation also concerns mechanisms to circumvent the CRS and non-transparent constructions intended to conceal the actual beneficiaries.

The concept of ‘intermediary’ is widely interpreted. Moreover, the Directive defines the envisaged operations with a series of ‘features’ which are considered as signs of possible tax evasion or unfair tax practices.

The information will be shared between the Member States by means of a centralised database.

Directive DAC6 enters into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the EU. The Member States must transpose them into their national law by 31 December 2019 at the latest. The cross-border transactions to be declared, the first step of which has already been carried out between the date of entry into force and the date of application (1 July 2020), will have to be declared by 31 August 2020 at the latest.
