DAC7: New EU tax directive

The tax authorities launched a new EU tax directive called DAC7. DAC7 is an EU tax directive that requires ALL digital platforms (such as Roamler, but also AirBnB, Bolt, Uber) in the EU to report revenue, personal and business information about the income the platform workers generate.

If you are earning money via a digital platform (although it’s a small amount), we will still need to share this information with your local tax authorities. So all Roamlers in EU, Norway and the United Kingdom are asked to provide their valid taxpayer identification info (TIN) in-app before 1st March 2023. This is for the purposes of reporting to tax authorities according to DAC7.

In case valid information is not submitted within that time frame, the account may have to get deactivated and/or payouts stopped until the required info is provided and validated. Important: The name and format of TIN varies by country as well as partner type (individual vs legal entity or business). For EU countries, Norway and the UK, please refer to the information below.

DAC7: What are you going to do with this information?

We need to provide this information from all our roamlers, according to the tax agency which are member of the European union. We will extract all data and share this on a yearly bases. DAC7 reporting is an annual reporting obligation. Your data will be shared each January for all income and information for the previous year. DAC7 is effective from January 1, 2023 and your information in respect of the calendar year 2023 will be shared in January, 2024.

DAC7: From when onwards are we required to update the TIN number in-app?

The directive will become active as from January 1st 2023, requiring companies to file the first data to the local tax authorities in January 2024. You’ll see that the field is still optional. It will be a hard requirement in-app, meaning if you do not update this field, you, unfortunately, can’t perform any paid tasks.
