DAC 6 Smart Reporting

The web-based compliance solution to assess and report your arrangements


The main objective of the Directive 2018/822 (“DAC6”) is to strengthen tax transparency by way of automatic exchange of information between the EU Member States on potentially “aggressive tax planning arrangements”.

Therefore, any transaction involving two countries, where at least one is an EU country, will need to be reported where it meets certain criteria (referred to as “Hallmarks”) that could indicate aggressive tax planning.

The obligation to disclose is on all EU-based intermediaries involved in the arrangement. Under certain conditions, the taxpayer may be obliged to disclose as well.

Your challenges

A risk assessment (per business unit) should be performed in order to ensure your readiness to comply. In this respect, you should identify the key risk areas and processes, the applicable hallmarks and the impacted business.

You should define governance framework to manage the risks, define roles and responsibilities and draft review and procedures.

Implementation of a DAC6 solution to monitor in-scope transactions, perform the reporting in the required format and to keep an audit trail of the reportability test performed on the transactions.
