On 16 February 2023 Bangladesh Bank issued SD Circular No. 02/2023 informing all AD banks and their offshore unit about the change.
What has changed?
- The circular requires all FDI receiving companies to submit the FDI reporting form (Form Fl-1) along with supporting documents to their authorized dealer bank within 20 days instead of one month after each quarter. Similarly, outward FDI sending companies are required to submit the FDI reporting form (Form F1-2) with relevant documents within the same time frame.
- Additionally, all FDI receiving and outward FDI sending organizations are required to submit the FDI reporting forms (Form FI-1 and Form FI-2) through the Rationalized Input Template (RIT) on the Web Portal within one month instead of 15 days after the next quarter. Hard copies of the reporting forms should also be submitted to the FIED Management Cell of the Statistics Department of Bangladesh Bank.
