On 08th April 2021, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) amended the reporting requirements for alternative investment funds in order to provide ease of compliance for such entities.

Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) will have to submit report on their activities on a quarterly basis. The report has to be submitted within 10 days from the end of a quarter and the new requirement will be effective from the quarter ending December 31, 2021, as per a circular.

Further, Category-III AIFs have to submit a report on leverage undertaken, on a quarterly basis, in revised formats.

Category-III AIFs are those trading with a view to making short-term returns and include hedge funds.

Earlier, category-I and II as well as category-III AIFs, which do not employ leverage, were required to comply with reporting norms on a quarterly basis. Category-III AIFs, which undertake leverage, were required to submit a report to Sebi on a monthly basis.

The regulator also said that any changes in terms of private placement memorandum and in the documents of the fund/ scheme should be intimated to investors and Sebi on a consolidated basis, within one month from the end of a financial year.
