  • Domestic operations – until June 30, 2020
  • Domestic and Foreign operations – until June 30, 2020 or 60 days from the date of lifting of travel restrictions/ban by the concerned government authorities, whichever comes later.

With the following requirements:

  • Annual Reports and/or Audited Financial Statements of Companies that are Not Publicly-Listed

Meanwhile, companies whose operations are NOT AFFECTED by COVID-19 are required to submit Annual Reports and/or AFS for December 31, 2019 within the initial period prescribed by law.
