Validation rule original exposure pre conversion factors

According to the taxonomy the value of C08.01 field row 010 column 100 ('of which off-balance sheet items') should be equal to the value of field row 030 column 090 (Exposure 'off-balance sheet items subkect to credit risk'). In our view this is not correct as the field 030/090 excludes securities financing transactions and derivatives (as part articile 3.3.3.1) while the field 010/100 is for the whole portfolio.

Reporting of exposures with immovable property as collateral

A bank has its head office in one EU country and has a branch in Luxembourg. Both the head office and the branch are required to submit separately template C15. The Luxembourg branch submits in Luxembourg template C15 with the branch information only. According to Annex VII of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 680/2014. The exposures to be reported in template C15 relate to exposures whose collateral (immovable property) is used to reduce regulatory own fund requirements. The head office and the Luxembourg branch have some loans secured by immovable property in various countries. However, the immovable property is not used either at the head office or at the Luxembourg branch for reducing regulatory own fund requirements. Therefore, our understanding is that neither the head office nor the Luxembourg branch should report these exposures in C15 template. We would like to confirm this approach following the request of the national competent authority given that there are no separate capital requirements at the Luxembourg branch level.

Instruction on reporting of other transferable assets

In annex XII, table template C 51.00, row 1.3.1 (1.3.1.1 and 1.3.1.2) the institutions should report on other transferable assets representing claims on or guaranteed by transferable assets representing claims on or guaranteed by the central government of a Member State, on a region with fiscal autonomy to raise and collect taxes, or of a third country in the domestic currency of the central or regional government, if the institution incurs a liquidity risk in that Member State or third country that it covers by holding those liquid assets. The instructions are not fully clear to us and we have the following questions on what to report on the rows 1.3.1.1-2: Is this only valid for ”Member State” or is the second phrase ”on a region…” an own definition of issuers, and in that case, is municipalities a part of that definition? Is ”domestic currency” only referring to ”third country” or all other previous issuers defined in the sentence (Member State and perhaps ”a region…”)? Is ”if the institution incurs…” referring to all issuers in the sentence, i.e. it is a general requirement that the assets can only be included here if they cover the incurred liquidity risk? Does this mean that if you have an LCR>100%, in the currency or for the institution, no assets are allowed to be included? Or is there another definition of “liquidity risk…that it covers”? To summarize 1.3.1, we would like to know: - What issuers and guarantors are allowed? - Is there any restrictions on any of these assets, e.g. asset issued in domestic currency? - Is there a cap on any of these assets, e.g. only a portion of the assets may be included in the reporting?

Obstacles to the payment initiation service

Can the impossibility for a Third Party Provider (TPP) to add new beneficiaries for payment initiation, coupled with the impossibility to initiate payments for unregistered beneficiaries, be considered as an obstacle? Besides, as a subsequent question, are delays up to 48 hours in the registration of new beneficiaries an obstacle?

Account Data required by a ASPSP to execute a payment order via a PISP

In the context of Payment Initiation Service (PIS) where a Payment Service User (PSU) payment order is to be carried out, the Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP) accesses the PSU e-banking account to require a payment. The PSU may: a) hold a single payment account to be debited or b) hold multiple payment accounts where only one of them is to be debited to finalize the payment order (in this case PSU has to select a payment account).With reference to both use cases and in the presence of an Account Servicing Payment Service Provider (ASPSP)’s dedicated interface, may the PSU be obliged to digit the IBAN of the account to be debited each time she/he initiates a transaction? Is the PISP always required to report the account number to be debited in the payment request or may this parameter be managed bilaterally among ASPSP and PSU (e.g.: default payment account, drop-down selection menu during the strong customer authentication (SCA) procedure, communication over Out-of-Band (OOB) channels, etc.)?

Liquidity templates and instructions

We found some inconsistencies between the templates, the instructions and the CRR. Please confirm the following: 1. In template C61.00, rows 140-180 (which is 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.3.1) should refer to Article 427 CRR instead of Article 414. The rest of those references on sub-article basis seem correct. 2. In Annex XIII, Part I the title for row 540 is different compared to the one in the template and does not correspond the text of Annex III, point 5 of the CRR. The text of Annex XIII should be amended accordingly. The same problem is present in Annex XIII, Part II, row 610 and Annex XIII, Part III, row 590. 3. In Annex XIII, Part I the title for rows 710-730 is different compared to the one in the template. We think that this is the correct title ("... not already reported in 1.10 to 1.11.3") and suggest to change the template accordingly. 4. In Annex XIII, Part I the title for rows 740-760 is different compared to the one in the template. We think this title should be amended because the the title used in the template seems to be the correct one. 5. In Annex XIII, Part I the title for row 820 is different compared to the on in the template. We think this is the correct title ("... reported in 4.6 - 4.10") and suggest to change the template accordingly. Similar issue is present in Annex XIII, Part II, row 890 where the correct title should be the one used in the template. Also such issue is found in Annex XIII, Part III, row 870 where the correct title is the one used in the instructions and the template should be amended accordingly. 6. In Annex XIII, Part II, the title for rows 1110-1120 and the indivudual titles for rows 1110 and 1120 are identical. We suggest to take the correct titles from the template. 7. In Annex XIII, Part III, the title for row 030 is different compared to the one in the template. We think this is the correct title and suggest to change the template accordingly. 8. In Annex XIII, Part V.1, the explanation for rows 140-200 is non conistent with the template. As the instructions seem correct, we suggest yoy amend the template legal reference accordingly.

HANDLING OF CASH COLLATERAL DEPOSIT HELD WITH OUR BANK

Bank A is solo reporter and is a small subsidiary bank owned by foreign Government of (Third) country X (51%) and Bank A (49%). In the General ledger it has a loan to a Public Sector Enterprise incorporated in the (Third) country X. This loan is backed by cash collateral provided to Bank A by the Central Bank of the (Third) Country X which covers the outstanding balance (principal) on the loan fully - only the interest remains uncovered.How shall this loan and the linked deposit be reported for liquidity purposes in the LCR templates (C 52.00 / C 53.00)?Operationally, the deposit is expected not to generate any additional liquidity buffer requirement as the deposit is expected to be returned only when the loan is fully paid, thus covering the expected outflows by the inflows.
