AIFMD – Deadline first reporting obligation extended to 28 February 2014

The Dutch Central Bank (DCB) has extended the deadline for the first AIFMD-reporting obligation until 28 February 2015 (originally 30 January 2015).
More information about the DCB announcement.

The deadline is extended because the AIFMD-reporting templates, published by DCB on 19 December 2014, contained incorrect Excel “row-numbers”. The correct row-numbers are needed to submit the reports through e-line in XML-import files. DCB now has published an user document which document contains the correct row-numbers. You will find the user documents on, under “downloads” and “user documentation”, 30-01-2015 Inconsistencies Excel templates.
