We think and work globally - we don't just say we are one firm; we act like one firm right across the world. We work wherever our clients need us.

DAC 6 is a new EU directive with the primary aim of tackling tax avoidance. The Firm is required to disclose any matters which meet a certain criteria, where the first step was implemented after 25/6/18 to the tax authorities. For advice given after 1/7/20 we will have 30 days to disclose matters which meet the criteria.
The role will sit within the Legal and Business Acceptance team and will be responsible for managing the DAC 6 compliance process, and working with the country representatives. The DAC 6 compliance team will be the key decision makers in deciding whether to disclose matter information to tax authorities.
