Laos’ Ministry of Finance has announced that the submission deadline for 2019 financial reports has been postponed from March 30, 2020, to April 30, 2020, to help mitigate the difficulties encountered by companies in light of the global COVID-19 epidemic. The measures, announced in Notification No. 0636, also allow for the possibility of a further blanket extension of this deadline, at the government’s discretion, should the situation fail to improve in time for the April 30 deadline to be tenable. Any such further extensions will be made by additional notifications of the Ministry of Finance. Tilleke & Gibbins will monitor this situation and keep you updated as the situation progresses.
