CRS and FATCA reporting deadlines extended due to COVID-19

Several tax authorities are extending their CRS and/or FATCA reporting deadlines relating to the 2020 reporting period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several tax authorities are extending their CRS and/or FATCA reporting deadlines relating to the 2020 reporting period due to the COVID-19 pandemic, similar to last year, which we then reported in a dedicated blog post. Also this year we ensure that you are kept up to date with the latest news regarding reporting deadlines in this dedicated blog post, so make sure to check in regularly.

Below you find an overview of all jurisdictions which to our knowledge are granting deadline extensions. For the sake of completeness, we have also included deadline extensions which are not mainly caused by the pandemic, such as for example the BVI, where an extension was given due to technical issues with the portal, or the UK, where no formal extension is given but penalties for late filings may be waived under certain circumstances. Extensions in additional countries are likely to follow in the coming weeks, often with relatively short notice.
