List of Q&As

COREP LE template

1.On the LE template what is “Code” – the guidance notes seem to suggest that the code will depend upon the national reporting system, unless a uniform codification is available in the EU. We dont believe there is a uniform codification - What should firms do with this box? 2.On LE what is sector of counterparty – It refers to FINREP economic sector but as we do not implement FINREP we are not sure what this is? And how should non FINREP firms report? 3.On LE what exposure should advanced firms be reporting? sEEPE or EEPE. This could vary from submission so do PRA want LE exposure reported in line with capital requirements or just in one way? 4.On LE what does expected maturity mean? Is it the residual maturity? 5.On LE where do we report other receivables and cash at bank? 6. How are firms that have core Uk group and non core LE groups supposed to report on the COREP LE template – do we report as if we have the waivers under the LE COREP template or not?

Doubt about Annex XV - Validation Rules

The validation rules test if the sum of NSFR ({C 61.00.b, r040, (c010-050)}) is equal to the sum of LCR ({C 52.00.a, c010, (r020-030)}. In my opinion this condition is NOT always valid. In LCR ({C 52.00.a, c010, (r020-030)} I have understood to report the AMOUNT of retail deposits which have open maturity OR maturity within 30 days (considering all possible prepayment clauses). This is the amount which has to be multiplied by "at least" 5% in order to calculate the corresponding OUTFLOW. At the same time in LCR ({C 52.00.a, c010, (r020-030)} we do NOT report the AMOUNT of retail deposits having maturity beyond 30 days without any prepayment clause. Consequently in LCR ({C 52.00.a, c010, (r020-030)} there is NOT the FULL perimeter of retail deposits. Then it is NOT possible to compare the LCR amount with the NSFR ({C 61.00.b, r040, (c010-050)}), where the FULL perimeter is actually reported (FULL maturity profile). So, have you considered the possibility to have retail deposits with maturity beyond 30 days without any prepayment clause?

Breakdown of leverage ratio exposure measure components: other assets belonging to the trading book

In Column 1 -exposure value, we report the accounting positions of the balance sheet (e.g. shares and bonds of the trading book), but the positions in the MRM model to calculate RWA do not provide from accounting. Moreover the scope of column 2- RWA is brider than other assets of the trading book as it includes also FX positions, index, derivatives,... How should we report?

Movements in allowances

Assume that we have an opening balance with a collective allowance of 25 (25 % x 100) for an unimpaired loan. The loan becomes impaired and therefore we make a specific allowance of 100 (100 % x 100) during the period. The collective allowance is re-calculated to 0 CU (25% x 0) at end of period. How shall it be reported: · Specific allowance on row 090/column 020 of 100? · Collective allowance on row 320/column ??? of -25? · Giving a net on row 530/column 060 of 75, or ?

Counterparty breakdown

To be able to report the counterparty breakdown in the FINREP tables in Annex III (e.g. F 04.01 - F 04.04) the Swedish sector-/counterparty codes has to be sorted into the FINREP counterparty breakdown according to the instructions in in Annex V, Part 1.35. However, the instructions are not always clear enough. E.g.: Definition of credit institutions: EBA instructions (published 26th July 2013) do not provide complete information on the definition of credit institutions. The definition of credit institutions comprises only banks and multilateral banks. Other types of credit institutions are not mentioned at all in counterparty sector definitions. In March 2012, EBA and ECB developed a joint document bridging between FINREP and BSI (“Bridging the reporting requirements regarding ESCB Balance Sheet and Interest rate statistics with EBA Guidelines on FINREP, COREP and Large exposures”) In this document, all MFIs that are credit institutions (i.e. excluding central banks and money market funds) shall be regarded as credit institutions in FINREP. As referenced by ECB to Directive 2000/28, an MFI Credit institution is either: “an undertaking whose business is to receive deposits or other repayable funds from the public and to grant credits for its own account” “an electronic money institution… on the taking up, pursuit and prudential supervision of the business of electronic money institutions”. Question: Which definition should be used in FINREP? Are credit institutions only banks and multilateral banks or all MFI satisfying the ECB to Directive 2000/28? There is a obvious risk that institutions will make different interpretations with unclear guidance.

How should IRB-institutions exclude exposures according to art 140.4?

Institutions should exclude the exposure classes in art 112 (a) to (f) when calculating the institution-specific countercyclical capital buffer rates. How should this be applied for Institutions that are not using the Standardised approach but IRB approach? It in addition not not clear in the instruction if C0903 should be filled in even though the directive not yet has been implemented in the country. I.e. should C0903 be filled in as per end March 2014, even though an Institution not should report any buffer as per that date?

FinRep table 5 row 010 column 030 - On demand [call] and short notice [current account]

Annex V indicates that balances receivable on demand classified as "cash and cash balances at central banks" shall also be reported in this template. This statement is supported by the validation rules stating that {F 01.01, r040, c010} = {F 5.00, r010, c030} (though only relating to other demand deposits). However, amounts in table 5 should be equal to tables 4.1 through 4.4 regarding loans and advances. This reasoning is indirectly supported by the following logical reasoning: If {F 01.01, r040, c010} = {F 5.00, r010, c030} AND if {F 01.01, r040, c010} has a detailed breakdown in table 4 as stated in Annex III, then there should be a link between table 4 and { F 5.00, r010, c030}. In which table (4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4) should cash and cash balances be included? Validation rules regarding these templates don't seem to include cash and cash balances at central banks.
