Extension of filing deadline for returns under the Common Reporting Standard (CRS)
Further extensions granted
The Revenue Commissioners have announced a further extension of the filing deadline for returns under the Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”) from 18 August 2017 to 4 September 2017.
Filing Extension for CRS
The European Commission previously identified and notified Member States of an issue within their validation module for CRS/DAC2 which required updating and as a result, the Revenue Commissioners had closed the CRS/DAC2 filing portal temporarily and withdrawn the DAC2/CRS validator tool until the required updates had been made.
The CRS/DAC2 filing portal has now been reopened. The filing deadline for CRS/DAC2 returns has however been extended to 4 September 2017 to allow adequate time for filing due to the delays.
