Corporate Tax Filing Extensions for the North Sea

15 May 2020

Following on from our blog on 15 April 2020 which covered various COVID-19 related measures being made by overseas jurisdictions with regards the postponement of Corporate Tax filing deadlines, in the last few weeks we have seen further updates from overseas tax authorities in regard to extensions for filings and payments. In particular, Norway and Denmark have updated their deadlines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Listed below is the updated guidance for Norway and Denmark filings:

Norway

The filing deadline of 31 May 2020 for 2019 Corporate Tax Returns has been postponed to 31 August 2020. No further extension will be granted and there is no requirement to file a request for an extension to 31 August 2020, this will be automatic.

Denmark

The filing deadline of 30 June 2020 for 2019 Corporate Tax Returns has been postponed to 1 September 2020.  There is no requirement to file a request for an extension to 1 September 2020, this will be automatic.

These extensions will surely allow some breathing space for companies to focus on other current pressing priorities.

Here at AAB we prepare Corporate Tax Returns for clients operating in Norway and Denmark, amongst many other overseas jurisdictions, and are well equipped to advise on such filing extensions and the filing requirements for companies who were operating overseas in 2019.
