The EU Directive on Administrative Cooperation (DAC) has gone through significant amendments since its introduction in 2011. The most recent amendments have introduced, amongst others, rules regulating exchange of information in relation to cross-border rulings, advanced pricing arrangements, country-by-country-reports, reportable cross-border arrangements and information relating to market platforms.
The most recent amendment to DAC (DAC7) was approved in 2021 and extended the scope of provisions relating to the exchange of information and administrative cooperation between EU Member States by requiring qualifying digital platform operators to collect and verify the information of their sellers and report, inter alia, income earned by such persons through the use of the digital platforms.
Malta transposed DAC7 by way of Legal Notice 8 of 2023 on 20 January 2023, to be amended within Subsidiary Legislation 123.127, ‘Cooperation with Other Jurisdictions on Tax Matters Regulations’
