DAC6 Directive Training Course

DAC6 is the new EU Directive that covers cross-border arrangements. It came into effect on 25 June 2018. Its aim is to discourage aggressive tax planning, promote disclosure and improve transparency.

In accordance with DAC6, promoters and 'service provider' intermediaries (including banks, accounting and law firms, and other providers) are required to report certain cross-border arrangements.

Our DAC6 Directive Training Course will help your employees understand and comply with the DAC6 directive policy, guidelines and procedures.
