DAC6 courses and country-by-country guide updated following new guidance


Major overhaul to DAC6 training

DAC6 is complicated.

For the past year we have researched the topic in depth, consulted with HMRC, hosted meetings with over 100 law firms, collaborated with international tax experts, built a DAC6 reporting tool, and written the definitive guide on the topic.

The more we learnt, the more we understood the challenges of training staff. Training must be clear, practical and actionable. It needs to cut through the opacity of EU guidance and stand in for the vagueness of tax authorities.

After countless hours of revision and redesign, our new DAC6 courses are ready. The courses are clear and concise. They focus on the practical aspects of DAC6 and feature relatable examples for each learning point. They incorporate the absolute latest guidance from the EU, HMRC and other tax authorities, and will continue to do so with regular updates.

With the first reports due in less than 6 months, now is the time to train all staff on DAC6 and the implications it will have on your firm.

If you reviewed an earlier version of our DAC6 courses, we recommend you take a look at our updated courses.

About DAC6

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. These “mandatory disclosure requirements” (MDR) mean that even arrangements without a particular tax motive may need to be reported to the tax authorities.
