The EU’s Directive on Administrative Cooperation in the field of taxation (2011/16/EU) was first adopted in 2011 “… to give Member States the power to efficiently cooperate at international level to overcome the negative effects of an ever-increasing globalization”. The scope of this directive (DAC) has since been extended many times to include information on financial accounts (DAC2), on tax rulings and advance pricing agreements (DAC3), on country-by-country reports (DAC4), on beneficial ownership (DAC5) and on reportable cross-border arrangements (DAC6). Last summer, the EU Commission proposed a sixth extension (“DAC7”) to the directive, to extend the EU tax transparency rules to digital platforms, which has been approved by the EU Parliament in March 2021. In the meantime, the EU Commission has also published a roadmap for a seventh extension (DAC8), focusing this time on increasing transparency regarding crypto-assets and e-money.
