Each year, the reporting portal opens on 1 April. Organisations then have two months to submit their reports, with final reports due on 31 May each year. Once submitted, organisations have a further 28 days to edit their report, in case corrections or changes are required.
Reports cover the preceding 12-month reporting period. The reporting period is the same each year, from 1 April (the previous year) to 31 March.
2020 reporting deadline extension
Due to the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency recently advised an extension of the report submission period, with reporting to officially commence from 1 May and due by 31 July 2020.
Reports will continue to cover the preceding 12-month period (1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020).
