Today, on 23 April 2021, the Belgian Tax Authorities released a new XML-scheme for filing MDR-DAC6 reports (version 1.3). The new scheme is available on the website of the Belgian Tax Authorities here. The current scheme (version 1.2) will be used for filing until 30 June 2021.

The new version also implies changes to the validation rules and the user guide. The updated new validation rules and user guide are expected to be published in May.

The scheme is relevant for the development of tools which generate XML files for MDR-DAC6 reporting purposes. Accordingly, also the web-application “MDR-DAC 6 XML Tool” on the website of the Belgian Tax Authorities will be modified and the new version will be made available as from 1 July 2021.
