East-West United Bank uses DAC6/MDR module of the tax reporting solution FiTAX to meet reporting requirements for cross-border tax planning

Frankfurt am Main, 25. June 2020 - BearingPoint RegTech, a leading international provider of innovative supervisory, regulatory and risk technology solutions (SupTech, RegTech and RiskTech), has won East-West United Bank (EWUB) as a new customer for its established tax reporting solution FiTAX. To meet new regulatory reporting requirements for cross-border tax arrangements, the bank will rely on the new FiTAX DAC6/MDR module from BearingPoint RegTech.  

The module was developed specifically for the DAC6/Mandatory Disclosure Rules regulation. From Q3 2020, cross-border tax arrangements must be reported within 30 days. BearingPoint RegTech's DAC6/MDR module facilitates the process of complying with the new regulations and enables the identification and a clear tracking of all reportable and non-reportable agreements. To start operations on time, EWUB has commissioned BearingPoint RegTech's Professional Services Team with the software implementation. 

What particularly convinced us about BearingPoint RegTech's solution was the quality and intuitive use of the software. We hope that the broad functional scope of BearingPoint RegTech’s DAC6/MDR module will help us in meeting regulatory requirements. We are looking forward to expanding our partnership with BearingPoint RegTech and are considering using their solutions in other areas of regulatory reporting.

Nicolas Marinier, Chief Compliance Officer of East-West United Bank
