ASIC in 2020 announced measures for both listed and unlisted entities to extend the deadline to file (lodge) financial reports under the Corporations Act 2001 by one month for balance dates up to and including 7 January 2021. This relief remains in place.

The ASIC relief does not apply to registered foreign companies.

ASIC in a March 2021 release stated that it is not currently intending to extend this relief for entities with financial years that end after 7 January 2021.
