Vietnam: Deadline for FATCA returns extended

The deadline for Vietnamese financial institutions to file FATCA returns for the 2019 reporting year has been extended to 1 November 2020 (from 15 August 2020). The extended deadline is Vietnam’s response to a notification from the U.S. tax authority (IRS) addressing implications of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
