Liquidity: Instructions on reporting outflows in relation to custody, clearing and cash managment

Are the references to the Basel rules correct? Looking at the January 2013 Basel document, paragrapphs 75 and 76 referred to in the instructions do not appear to be the relevant in this context, as they refer to stable retail deposits.

FINREP Reporting for firms with Accounting Reference Date other than 31 December

Article 18 (3) confirms that FINREP applies from 1 July 2014. We have a financial year end of 30 September which means that where we will report our first quarter's data for relevant templates (in full) as at 30 September 2014. For semi-annual templates should we only report a quarter's data in our first submission (1 July to end September) or should we start collecting data from 1 October, and report a full 6 months of data as at 31 March 2015? For annual templates should we only report a quarter's data in our first submission (1 July to end September) or should we start collecting data from 1 October, and report a full year's data as at 31 March 2015? The period 1 July 2014 to 30 September 2014 is a full quarter, so this will allow us to report a full quarter's data.

COREP CA1: Reference to CRR Art 3 is unclear

CA1 Row 524 Column 010 relates to Article 3 of CRR. Article 3 of CRR, relating to Application of stricter requirements by institutions states: "This Regulation shall not prevent institutions from holding own funds and their components in excess of, or applying measures that are stricter than those required by this Regulation. Can the EBA please confirm if this relates to the difference between Capital Requirement and Capital Holdings? Alternatively is this cell intended to reflect any additional capital holding dictated by competent authorities?

COREP: 'residence of the obligor' for the purposes of the CRGB1 template for supranational organisations and multilateral development banks

The guidelines for the CR GB 1 COREP template, Geographical breakdown of exposures by residence of the obligor, state that 'residence of the obligor' refers to the country of incorporation. However, how is this guideline to be applied in the case of exposures to either supranational organisations such as the EU (European Union) or multilateral development banks such as the EIB (European Investment Bank)?

Remittance dates in case of an accounting year-end which deviates from the calendar year

Is our understanding that submission of "financial information" based on their accounting year-end which deviates from the calendar year is relevant to FINREP templates only, but not to wider financial and prudential information (incl. COREP, LE, LR, LCR...) as well, correct?

Counterparty breakdown across all templates shall align with ECB statistical requirements ECB/2008/32.

FINREP: Definition of Credit institutions and Other financial corporations

This question asks for a clarification of the definition of Credit institutions (bank and multilateral banks) and Other financial corporations for financial information templates (FINREP) foreseen by EBA FINAL draft implementing Technical Standards 2013-02 published on 26 July 2013, Anex V, Part 1. Counterparty breakdown across all templates shall align with ECB statistical requirements ECB/2008/32. The Article 1 of that ECB regulation provide us with definition of MFI and breakdown of MFI to a) central banks, b) credit institutions as defined in Article 4(1) of Directive 2006/48/EC and c) other MFIs (e.g. Money market funds). For purpose of FINREP it is not clear if c) other MFIs (e.g. Money market funds) as defined in ECB Regulation shall be classified as Credit institutions sector (bank and multilateral banks) or Other financial corporations sector.
