Help, my accountant has corona and can't file my VAT return in time. Is this a valid excuse?

Here is the answer no. Being compliant with VAT reporting obligations is a requirement that belongs to the company itself. In principle, a late filing of the VAT return cannot be justified due to illness of your accountant. Therefore, in such a situation, please take the necessary precautions.
