DAC7 Impact & Readiness

The following contents are covered:

The Business Analytics DAC7 Impact & Readiness analyses three dimensions that are key to finding out if you are subject to a reporting requirement for tax purposes:

  • Do you operate a platform subject to reporting requirements?
  • Are there any sellers on the platform subject to reporting requirements?
  • Are any activities carried out on the platform that are subject to reporting requirements?

In accordance with Council Directive (EU) 2021/514 of March 22, 2021, digital platform operators must in future disclose to the EU tax authorities information on their registered users' transactions. The basic definition of platform operator is very broadly formulated in the Directive. It concerns almost every digital interface or application that connects sellers of relevant activities with potential buyers, be it B2B, B2C or C2C.

Even companies that on first glance are not platform operators may fulfil the DAC7 criterion due to their business processes and IT landscape, meaning that they can fall under the reporting requirement without knowing it. The new due diligence and reporting requirements are to be transposed into national law by the end of 2022 and will then apply for digital platform operators both in the EU and in third countries as well as for sellers on these platforms.


Relevant activities include real estate or vehicle leasing, personal services and the sale of goods. The first reporting is obligatory as of January 31, 2024.

Platform operators now face the following challenges:

  • Impact analysis: Is the platform subject to the reporting requirements under DAC7?
  • Data collection: How does the operator gather the data?
  • Data protection: To what extent do the GTC have to be adjusted?

We have developed a Business Analytics for you allowing you to find out in 15 minutes if your company is subject to the DAC7 Directive and must in future report its users' revenue. If you are affected, we will be happy to support you to set up processes to collect and report the relevant data. If you would like to run the entire analysis for free, please just contact us.
