DAC7

The new DAC7 (Directive on Administrative Cooperation in the Field of Taxation) rules in the European Union require online platforms to collect and report information about our EU sellers for tax purposes. To comply with this, all Fiverr sellers who are residents in one of the EU member states must update the required DAC7 form. The information will be reported to the EU tax authorities.

 

Note: Sellers who are residents in one of the European Union member states must complete the DAC7 form within 60 days. Failing to complete the DAC7 form may result in an account suspension and the withdrawal of funds will be blocked.

If you aren't a resident of the EU, however, your address is located in the EU, contact our Customer Support team to change your location.

Data collection and reporting (or Data Privacy and Security)

When you fill in the DAC7 form, you will be required to provide your personal information, such as your full name, address, date of birth (for individuals), and your Tax Identification Number, also known as TIN. The information will be used for reporting to the relevant EU tax authorities and as further required by applicable laws.
