Structuring alternative investments in the post-BEPS era - module 4: the mandatory disclosure regime (DAC6)
Module 4 - 11/05/2023 - 2 to 5 PM : the mandatory disclosure regime (DAC6)
Under the mandatory disclosure regime (“MDR”), tax intermediaries such as tax advisers, accountants and lawyers that design, promote or provide assistance in regard to certain cross-border arrangements have to report these to the tax authorities. Since the implementation of the MDR, the analysis of potential reporting obligations has become an integral part of each and every tax analysis.
The MDR operates through a system of hallmarks that may trigger reporting obligations and the main benefit test (“MBT”) that functions as a threshold requirement for many of these hallmarks. As such, the MBT should filter out irrelevant reporting and enhance the usefulness of the information collected because the focus will be on arrangements that have a higher probability of truly presenting a risk of tax avoidance.
However, how are reportable cross-border arrangements determined? How should some of the more ambiguous hallmarks be interpreted? And, what is a reasonable approach towards the interpretation of the main benefit test (MBT)? All these questions will be answered during this webinar organised in co-operation with Legitech.
