The challenge

When it comes to tackling tax avoidance, efforts to improve transparency are high on the agenda for governments around the world. A new EU Directive, "DAC6" (also known as EU MDR) is one of the measures the European Commission has put in place towards achieving this. Although introduced in June 2018, the full reporting requirements do not take effect until summer 2020 (with some EU countries to delay until the start of 2021). However, at this point an entirely new reporting regime will apply for tax payers (and their advisors). These new rules mean that more time and resource will need to be dedicated to providing information to relevant tax authorities about any relevant cross-border arrangements they’ve entered into (or advised on).

What makes all of this more challenging is that once a relevant cross-border arrangement has been triggered, tax payers and their advisors have only 30 days in which to report this to the appropriate tax authorities across the EU member states. With time of the essence, and with potentially multiple arrangements to report, it will be critical for businesses to quickly determine whether the arrangement is reportable under DAC6 and then track the process of reporting in real time.

We’ve designed MDR Reporter to make this process simple, transparent and efficient, providing you with one place to go to address all of your compliance needs to meet the DAC6 regulations. MDR Reporter will act as a repository to track all potentially relevant arrangements, allow users to apply local rules to determine whether reporting will be required and provide a simple process for seamless and efficient reporting. With all of your decision making process being documented in real time, MDR Reporter will also provide you with the audit trail you need for any subsequent investigation.
