Luxembourg passed law implementing DAC 6

On 25 March 2020, the Luxembourg Parliament passed the law implementing the EU Council Directive (EU) 2018/822 (DAC 6) on the mandatory reporting, principally by intermediaries but ultimately by taxpayers, of reportable cross border arrangements and the subsequent automatic exchange of information in relation to those arrangements between EU governments.

Amendments on the implementation of the professional privilege exemption on Luxembourg DAC 6 draft law

On 8 August 2019, draft law 7465 transposing the EU directive 2018/822 on cross-border reportable arrangements (referred to as DAC 6) in Luxembourg was submitted before the Luxembourg Parliament. Under the terms of DAC 6 the draft law should have been passed by 31 December 2019. However, due to a number of debates around its implementation, including the treatment of the professional privilege exemption, the draft law has not been passed yet.

Guidance on Intellectual Property Box Taxation in Cyprus

Our Cyprus Team has authored a legal guide on the Intellectual Property (IP) Box Taxation regime in Cyprus, providing a guideline on the tax benefits IP Holding Companies can have in Cyprus. The IP can be one of the most valuable assets of your organisation; therefore choosing the appropriate location for structuring the exploitation of IP assets is vital for an organisation to achieve efficient business development, effective IP protection and maximisation of tax savings.
