Following a change in US law, the 2016 FBAR is technically due to be filed by 18 April 2017. Because that is the date printed on the FBAR form; many Little Miss Perfect's we know are rushing to file by that date.
The filing date for an FBAR for 2016 can, however, be automatically extended to 16 October 2017. There is no requirement to request this extra time, as the filing date is extended automatically to 16 October 2017 without any extension form being required.
Great news for many!
