Council Directive (EU) 2018/822 amending Directive 2011/16/EU ("DAC6") is currently the hot topic in tax that will impact very shortly the professionals of the financial sector and their clients.
In a tax environment becoming more and more transparent, the DAC6 regulation introduces the mandatory exchange of information for reportable cross-border arrangements within the EU.
Indeed, this regulation requires from intermediaries such as banks, asset managers, life insurance companies, advisors to ensure appropriate processes and procedures to identify the potential reportable cross-border arrangements.
In this respect, various hallmarks have been elaborated to assist the intermediaries with the analysis of the potential arrangements falling within the scope of DAC6. Some of the hallmarks should be corroborated with a main benefit test with respect to the tax advantage of the arrangement.
Depending on its DAC6 qualification (Promoters, Service Providers, Taxpayers) and the other actors involved in the arrangement structures, the concerned market players may have reporting obligations regarding preexisting and new arrangements.
This webinar, in 2 parts, will cover the above technical and operational DAC6 elements supported by real-life examples, to provide the participants with the must-have insight to understand and anticipate the upcoming DAC6.
