Tax year

The tax year coincides with the calendar year. It may, however, be changed upon request submitted to the Commercial Registry.


Income Statement

Tax returns must be submitted by the companies at the latest:

1. 9 months after the end of the accounting period; or
2. by 31 March of the year following the end of the accounting year.

If this time period coincides with a public holiday the deadline shall be the next business day. The tax authorities usually grant deadline extensions for returns submitted online -- this option must be verified each year.

Examples of deadlines for submission of income statements:

End of period Submission deadline for the statement Extension granted for statements submitted online in 2019
31 December 2018 30 March 2019 28 November 2019

VAT returns

As a rule, entities registered for VAT purposes must submit a quarterly statement. The deadline for submitting a VAT return is the 15th day of the second month after the end of the quarter to which it pertains.

VAT returns must be filled in and submitted to the tax authorities, even for inactive companies.
