The filing of RBI FLA return has been extended to July 31, 2020. This has come as an announcement on the form link itself which can be seen as above.
RBI has vide its circular no. 22 dated 21st October, 2015 mandated that LLPs (Limited Liability Partnerships) which have received FDI or invested abroad (ODI) are also required to report annually in the FLA return i.e. Foreign Liabilities and Assets return by 15th July every year. However since they do not have a Corporate Identification Number (CIN) they have to mention ‘A99999AA9999LLP999999’ against CIN in the said return. The operative part of the said circular is reproduced hereunder:
In order to capture the statistics relating to Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), both inward and outward, by Limited Liabilities Partnerships (LLPs) in India, it has been decided that henceforth, all LLPs that have received FDI and/or made FDI abroad (i.e. overseas investment) in the previous year(s) as well as in the current year, shall submit the FLA return to the Reserve Bank of India by July 15 every year, in the format as prescribed in the A.P (DIR Series) Circular No. 145 dated June 18, 2014. Since, LLPs do not have21-Digit CIN (Corporate Identity Number), they are advised to enter ‘A99999AA9999LLP999999’ against CIN in the FLA Return.
