DAC6 – REPORTING OBLIGATION IN RESPECT OF THE AGGRESSIVE TAX STRUCTURES – SME INFO 2020-15
Struggle against tax avoidance or evasion is one of the EU’s political priorities. Exchange of information among the individual national tax authorities in respect of cross-border transactions is an efficient means for this. The reporting obligation concerning aggressive tax arrangements is regulated by the Council Directive (EU) 2018/822 of 25 May 2018 or shortly DAC6 Directive, which was taken over into the Hungarian legislation with an effect of 1 July 2020. (This issue is based on the actual DAC6 regulations, so it is to replace SME INFO Nr.2020-13 published on the same topic on 18 June 2020.)
