The group may appoint a reporting company and send a corporate interest restriction return, and this update provides details on how to appoint a reporting company. The deadline to appoint a reporting company indeed depends on the group’s period of account, but for groups with the need to send a return, the reporting company must be appointed by 31 March 2018.
