Cross-border transaction reporting delay under DAC 6 is welcome
Last updated 12 May 2020
Following a considerable amount of lobbying from businesses and professional bodies across the EU, many companies will welcome the proposed delay to certain deadlines.
However, companies should not sit on their laurels as the proposed delay:
- will need to be legislated by Member States;
- is only for three months; and
- any reportable transactions that arise during the deferral period will still need to be reported by the end of the deferral period.
The proposed revised deadlines are therefore as follows:
|Date of transaction||Original filing date||Proposed deferred filing date|
|Transactions implement between 25 June 2018 and 30 June 2020||31 August 2020||30 November 2020|
|Transactions between 1 July 2020 and 30 September 2020||Within 30 days of transaction or date made available for implementation||30 October 2020 (30 day period commences on 1 October)|
|Transactions from 1 October 2020||Within 30 days of transaction or date made available for implementation||Within 30 days of transaction or date made available for implementation|
Our recommendation is that wherever possible companies should continue to try and put processes in place to identify, evaluate and record transactions according to the original timelines given that all transactions will ultimately need to be reported.
