eDesk/S3 communication means only applicable for AIFM reporting submission as of 1 July 2024

For the attention of alternative investment fund managers

The CSSF press release published on 22 September 2023 enabled the alternative investment fund managers to transmit their AIFM reporting directly to the CSSF either via an API interface (S3 technology) – from 2 November 2023 – or via the dedicated eDesk approach – from 31 January 2024, free of charge. It has also announced that the transmission of this reporting via external transmission channels will cease on 30 June 2024.

From today, 1 July 2024 :

  • Only the API (S3) channel or the eDesk procedure will be authorised for the submission of AIFM reporting
  • Any AIFM report submitted using the old transmission method (external channels) will not be processed by the CSSF

The user guide detailing the two transmission methods for AIFM reporting is available by following the link below: AIFM Reporting – Technical Guidance – CSSF.
