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 www.dnb.nl/en/statistics/eline-dnb/aifmd/, under “downloads” and “user documentation”, 30-01-2015 Inconsistencies Excel templates.
New remuneration requirements for Financial Undertakings
The new Act on Remuneration Policies of Financial Undertakings (Wet beloningsbeleid financiële ondernemingen) (Wbfo) was adopted by the Senate of the Dutch Parliament on 27 January 2015. The Wbfo will come into effect on 7 February 2015.
The Wbfo will be implemented in the Dutch Act on the Financial Supervision (Wet op het financieel toezicht) and will in principle apply to financial undertakings with its registered seat in the Netherlands.
AIFMD - Reporting requirements non-EU managers postponed
On 19 December 2014, the Dutch Central Bank (DCB) announced on its website that non-EU Managers are, until further notice, released from their reporting obligation (the Annex IV reporting) under the Dutch AIFMD private placement regime (PPR).
According to the DCB no reporting profile will be issued to the non-EU Managers yet, as the Dutch regulators will first request the reporting of licensed and notified AIFM’s. As a consequence thereof, non-EU Managers are not required to file the first Annex IV due on January 31, 2015. No enforcement action will be taken towards the non-EU Managers in this regard according to DCB.
