The European Commission has concluded its infringement proceedings against four member states regarding the seventh Directive on Administrative Cooperation in Tax Matters (DAC7).
These proceedings were initiated in January 2023, targeting a total of 14 member states that had failed to fully or adequately notify the Commission about their national measures for implementing DAC7 into their respective laws. The deadline for such notifications was December 31, 2022.
DAC7 introduces new reporting requirements for digital platforms, including websites and mobile apps that enable taxpayers to sell goods, provide personal services online or offline, or rent out immovable property or means of transport. These platforms are obliged to report information on the taxpayers using their services and provide details about their economic activities.
This information aims to support tax authorities in member states in detecting and preventing tax evasion or inaccurate reporting facilitated by digital platforms.
In decisions made on October 18, 2023, the Commission has now acknowledged that Romania, Lithuania, Luxembourg, and Italy have properly notified it about the measures they have taken to implement the Directive into their national legislation.
