The Idaho Supreme Court recently affirmed a District Court's judgment that the gain from the sale of a 78.54% membership interest in a limited liability company did not constitute 'business income' under Idaho Code section 63-3027.  In Noell Indus. Inc. v. Idaho State Tax Comm'n, Docket No. 46941 (Idaho 2020), the court determined that “this type of gain does not meet the definition of ‘business income’ under either the transactional test or functional test (including the unitary business test),” and was therefore not apportionable income.

EU: Possible six-month deferral to DAC6 reporting

0
Following a recent announcement of the European Commission’s proposal for a three-month deferral of reporting deadlines under the new DAC6 mandatory disclosure regime in the EU and UK, the Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union (COREPER) has now reached an agreement on a revised proposal which could possibly defer the reporting deadline for six months. On the basis that the draft Directive, once approved, may be adopted at the discretion of each member state, it is imperative that businesses do not delay in preparing to meet their existing compliance obligations should reporting dates not be deferred (or not be deferred in all Member States where they operate).
