The timeframe for individuals to submit reports concerning the movement of funds on foreign accounts for 2019 has been extended by six months


Resolution No. 792 of the Russian Government dated 30 May 2020 has been published whereby the deadline for individuals to submit reports concerning the movement of funds on foreign accounts (deposits) has been moved from 1 June to 1 December 2020.

Please be reminded that, according to the general rule[1], resident individuals should once a year submit to the tax authorities in accordance with their place of registration reports concerning the movement of funds on foreign accounts (deposits) with foreign banks (and, in accordance with the new rules, on accounts (deposits) with other foreign financial market institutions).

The usual submission timeframe for such reports is before 1 June of the year following the reporting year[2] (except in the event a report is submitted owing to an account being closed when the report is provided simultaneously with the notification of the closing of the account). Accordingly, reports for 2019 should have been submitted before 1 June 2019.

The Resolution of the Russian Government extends the submission deadline for 2019 reports by six months - until 1 December 2020.

For such purposes the relevant additions have been made to clause 3 of Resolution No. 409 of the Russian Government dated 2 April 2020 “On measures to ensure stable economic development”, which contains provisions concerning the extension of the timeframes for tax returns and other documents to be provided in connection with the spread of the coronavirus infection.

The Resolution of the Russian Government came into force as of the date when it was officially published, i.e. from 1 June 2020.
