Belgium: Local file, further extension of filing deadline to 16 November 2020

Belgium: Local file, extension of filing deadline

The Minister of Finance on 12 October 2020 announced a further extension of the deadline for filing corporate income tax returns for Assessment Year 2020. The new deadline is 16 November 2020 (previously, the filing deadline had been extended to 29 October 2020).


Because the Local file form (275LF) constitutes part of the corporate tax return, the postponement of the deadline to 16 November 2020 also applies to the filing of the Local file form.
