Luxembourg Tax Alert 2020-18



DAC 6 guidelines released

On 14 October 2020, the Luxembourg tax authorities added new guidelines to the DAC 6 portal on their website. 

How will it work?

Intermediaries and relevant taxpayers will have two ways to file DAC 6 reports: 

  • Via a dedicated form on 
  • Via a drag and drop system allowing you to submit a dedicated XML file  

The Luxembourg tax authorities state that both solutions will be available from 1 January 2021. 

The procedure is still undergoing testing, and the guidelines may be amended in the future if updates are made. However, the guidelines already provide a lot of useful information that can help you understand the process. The XML file may also be useful when planning your DAC 6 reporting process and integrating it into your IT solution.
