Unlike the income tax and corporate income tax it is not possible to request a time extension for filing a VAT return. You are (in principle) always obliged to file the VAT return before the deadline. If not, you will receive a fine.
Only in case of a very serious calamity which makes it impossible to file the VAT return you can contact your tax office to make an arrangement or if you are entitled to a bigger refund for a previous period.
