COVID-19: Belgium Extends Corporate Tax Return Deadline

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

01 May 2020


On April 29, 2020, the Belgian tax authority announced changes to the deadline for the submission of annual corporate tax declarations due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Under the changes, companies whose year-end fell between October 1, 2019, and December 30, 2019, inclusive, will have seven months to file their corporate tax declarations. This period begins on the first day of the month following the month the taxpayer's tax year ended. Should the deadline fall on a weekend or a public holiday, it is moved forward to the next working day.

The new deadline applies to all companies regardless of legal status and filing method (electronic or manual).

For companies with a financial year-end prior to October 1, 2019, the existing rules apply. This means that corporate tax returns must be filed no earlier than one month after the date of the annual general shareholders' meeting and not later than six months after the end of the accounting year. However, due to the COVID-19 virus, companies may, under certain circumstances, request to postpone their annual general meeting by a maximum of 10 weeks.

Companies can also request to further extend the corporate tax return deadline if they cannot meet the existing revised deadlines.
