ASIC Extends 30 June 2022 Reporting Deadlines for Unlisted Entities

ASIC Extends 30 June 2022 Reporting Deadlines for Unlisted Entities

Kristen Haines

ASIC has just announced that they are extending the reporting deadlines unlisted entities with 30 June 2022 reporting obligations to ASIC by one month.  This involves year-ends and half-years ending between 24 June 2022 – 7 July 2022.

There has been no deferral of deadlines for listed entities, registered foreign entities or if your reporting date is outside the specified window.   ASIC has said they will continue to consider relief for other entities and balance dates on a case-by-case basis. 

This extension is likely to be beneficial as entities may have found meeting their reporting obligations challenging due to the current shortage of Accountants and Auditors in Australia. 

The reporting obligations have been deferred by 1 month. Therefore, if you have a 30 June 2022 balance date your new reporting deadlines will be:
