Qatar: Reminder of 30 April deadline for tax returns filed by companies

Qatar: Reminder of 30 April deadline

The deadline for filing tax returns by companies with a 31 December 2020 year-end is 30 April 2021. Currently, the tax authority has not granted a general extension of time for filing tax returns.


The tax authority may grant an extension of time—of up to four months—from the deadline for filing tax returns if requested by taxpayers. Extension applications for tax returns due 30 April 2021 must be submitted to the tax authority before 28 February 2021. The extension request must be submitted 60 days prior to the original tax return submission deadline.

To obtain an extension, taxpayers must provide certain information to the tax authority that demonstrates that the taxpayer is unable to file a tax return by 30 April 2021.
