On 8 November 2016, the Council agreed on a proposal granting access for tax authorities to information held by authorities responsible for the prevention of money laundering.

The directive will require member states to enable access to information on the beneficial ownership of companies. It will apply as from 1 January 2018. The proposal is one of a number of measures set out by the Commission in July 2016, in the wake of the April 2016 Panama Papers revelations.
