Over the past months, a handful of governments issued their DAC6 technical guidances for intermediaries and taxpayers to disclose cross-border tax arrangements under the EU Council Directive on the mandatory automatic exchange of information (AEOI) in relation to reportable cross-border arrangements (DAC6).

Their guidances include:

  • the requirement to encode reports with the UTF-8 format;
  • data file transmissions through the mass data interface (ELMA);
  • the XML schema file requirements; and
  • definitions for technical identities and descriptions of total, partial, and subsequent report deliveries.

Below is a geographical overview highlighting the countries that have published their technical guidance. (last updated: June 17)
