To encourage the filing of financial statements through the DBD’s e-filing system, the DBD issued a notification extending the deadline for filing the financial statements through the system by 7 days, effective 27 November 2018.

As a result, if a company with fiscal year-end 31 December 2018 holds its general meeting to approve the financial statements on 30 April 2019, the deadline for filing those financial statements through the DBD’s e-filing system is extended from 31 May 2019 to 7 June 2019.
