Covid-19: FCA confirms extra time for half yearly reports

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has confirmed additional temporary relief for listed companies facing the challenges of corporate reporting during the coronavirus crisis

The move gives companies an additional month in which to publish their half yearly financial reports.

The regulator says the extra time, available on a temporary basis, is to reflect the additional capacity concerns that listed companies currently face. It follows the earlier announcement about annual reports, made in March at the start of the pandemic.

Currently, under the Transparency Directive, listed companies are required to publish half yearly financial reports no later than 3 months from the end of the period to which the report relates.
