The FAQs have been updated several times since being originally released in March 2020.

The most recent update (6 April 2021) reveals that FAQs were added or updated to indicate that an “extremely simple method” for extended filing and payment due dates (such as by adding a note to an application for an extension of return filing and payment due dates relating to COVID-19 in an open space on a tax return) will not be acceptable on or after 16 April 2021.
