11.1 About DAC7. Starting January 2023 DAC7 introduces new requirements for online platforms, including marketplaces, obliging them to report and verify data about their sellers' transactions to the tax authorities. DAC7 places legal obligation on icouturiers to share specific Personal Data of sellers of the Marketplace to French tax authorities. Exceptions are sellers who had no more than 30 sales and not more than 2000 EUR of revenue during any year. The first report will be made by icouturiers in January 2024, for the 2023 calendar year.

11.2 Why icouturiers collects and retains tax Personal Data. We collect this information on a legal basis of compliance with DAC7 and will retain it for as long as required to fulfil our obligations under DAC7. icouturiers is GDPR compliant and protects Personal Data it is obligated to collect and retain. icoutureirs will never use any Personal Data for its own purposes.  

11.3 How does DAC7 affects sellers. Upon request from icouturiers, sellers are required to provide the following tax Personal Data by email

   11.3.1 For individuals: surname/first name; tax identification number; primary address; the Member State where the seller is legal resident; VAT identification number and, if not available, date of birth; country and city of birth; financial account identifier(s) i.e. bank account or other payment services account; name of holder of account into which the payments are made if not the seller’s account; total amount of annual revenue, for each quarter and number of annual operations.

All communications will be sent to sellers every January of every year for the previous calendar / financial year.  

11.5 Sellers rights to their Personal Data. Sellers have rights to request to delete the Personal Data they provided under DAC7 regulation. Upon receiving Personal Data deletion request, icouturiers will verify the existence of such Personal Data by asking seller to provide surname, first name and an email address. If icouturiers has the Personal Data, the request will be assessed against our compliance with data retention regulations. Regardless of the decision, the Personal Data will have to be provided to French tax authorities, because it is legal obligation of icouturiers. If icouturiers does not have any Personal Data, the seller will be informed about it by email.

11.5 What happens if required Personal Data is not provided by sellers. DAC7 stipulates the exact process of requesting information and the consequences if these requests were not answered. At first, seller has to be served with two reminders. Then, if no response is received from seller, seller’s account should be either blocked and prevented from registering again within no less than 60 days, or payouts for services withheld until the required information is provided.
