On 31 May 2021, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiële Markten, the AFM) published various news items on its website calling on investment firms (see here, here and here), managers of alternative investment funds (AIFs) and depositaries of AIFS and undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities to file their financial statements and ancillary documentation with the AFM before 1 July 2021.

The AFM notes that it reviewed the financial reporting over 2019 and identified a number of deficiencies. Therefore, the AFM will pay extra attention to (the timely filing of) this year’s financial reporting and the regulator may decide to impose enforcement measures in case of deficiencies.
