Frankfurt, September 7, 2020 - BearingPoint RegTech, a leading international provider of innovative supervisory, regulatory and risk technology solutions (SupTech, RegTech and RiskTech), wins BDO in Germany as a new client for their FiTAX DAC6/MDR module. BDO AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft will use the DAC6/MDR module to fulfil its regulatory reporting obligations for cross-border tax arrangements and also to create its clients' reports. FiTAX is the market leading software for tax reporting in Switzerland, Luxembourg and France and is used by more than 3,200 institutions. BearingPoint RegTech has recently acquired two new clients for the innovative tax reporting module: Union Investment Group and East-West United Bank in Luxembourg.
As a consultancy, we had to react quickly to the new DAC6 regulation. After a market evaluation, we chose a partner who could deliver a suitable software solution that can support in meeting our DAC6 tax reporting requirements. We were looking for partner that has a sufficient experience in tax authority reporting and has the appropriate technical know-how. BearingPoint RegTech was able to convince us fully in both areas.
Dr. Dirk Elbert, Head of International Tax, BDO
With the development of the DAC6/MDR module for its established tax reporting software FiTAX, BearingPoint RegTech has reacted to new reporting requirements for cross-border tax arrangements imposed by the OECD and the EU. Due to the increasingly complex regulatory landscape, the fast and automated compliance with reporting obligations is becoming increasingly important.
We are very pleased that BDO Germany, as a leading auditing and tax consultancy firm, will use our FiTAX solution. This shows that even large consulting firms rely on an established software provider for tax reporting to meet the new DAC6 reporting obligations. Audit firms are predestined for our software, as it significantly facilitates the management of many cases.
Ronald Frey, member of the BearingPoint RegTech Management Board
