DAC6 Directive: A Closer Analysis of Its “Hallmarks”

DAC6 Directive: A Closer Analysis of Its “Hallmarks”

We have three final panels to introduce as part of #TLTaxCon19, and this one we're really excited about!

Kicking in on July 1, 2020, the EU's DAC6 Directive calls for the disclosure of specific cross-border tax arrangements that fall within certain hallmarks as defined by the directive.

During this discussion, our panelists will break down each one of the hallmarks and suggest ways via which financial service providers can better comply with this new transparency regulation.

This new directive was a source of lively exchange during our last conference in 2018, so we are looking forward to seeing the debate continue in Barcelona.

Make sure you book your ticket for our event and jump in on all this DAC6 talk!
