The Challenges of Implementing the Directive

In addition to the time and expertise-related problems currently associated with the DAC6 Directive, companies also face a multitude of challenges as regards the proper fulfilment of their compliance obligations.

New System for Reporting Obligations – Influencing Factors

What does this mean for your company?

Complexity and Uncertainty​ at an Implementation Level 

The heterogeneous implementation processes within the EU are not yet complete. National requirements will not necessarily be enacted until reports start being submitted.

Information Procurement and Documentation

The information to be reported is not necessarily in place and must first be made available. Potential arrangements must be comprehensively scrutinized and documented.

Reporting Responsibilities and Hierarchy

It is necessary to define the responsibilities of the individual business areas in relation to the collection, evaluation and transmission of transactions. Identification and monitoring of reportable transactions.

Time and Speed

The documentation period started on 25 June 2018 and so the reporting obligation effectively already applies. The later you leave it until you start the documentation process, the more effort you will have to put into processing the arrangements. Live reporting starts on 1 July 2020.

Efficiency and Simplicity

It is necessary to strike a balance between your reputation, sanctions and the amount of effort involved. You need to set up interfaces to make things simpler.
