Disclosures of Staff expenses Management body in its supervisory function in FINREP Template 44.4

In the countries where we operate supervisory board and management board are two separate bodies. The supervisory board also has members which are not employed by the reporting entity but still receive remuneration for their function. We would like to understand, if this remuneration has to be presented in template 44.4 column 0040 and if yes, should those external remuneration be presented consequently in staff expenses (FINREP Template 2 - Statement of profit or loss in a r370, c010 )?

How to distinguish the exposures in these 3 rows?

Treatment of securities received in reverse repo and sold (short position) in F32.04 and F08.01

Our question is about the link between F32.04 and F08.01 for reverse repo, notably if the securities received is sold (short position). Our position is: - Securities in reverse repo don’t have to be reported in F 8.1 (only repo have to be reported) but should be mentioned in cell 160_030 in F32.04, - Securities received and sold have to be reported in F 8.1, cell 040_010, - The sum of row 10 to 110 (column 010) of F32.04 have to be matched with liabilities reported in F08.01. Do you agree with this treatment? If not, could you precise your recommendations?

Group Solvency report: The distinction between the contents of the columns 350 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” and 400 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” of the Group Solvency report

To what extent the contents of the columns 350 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” and 400 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” differ from each other? Does the content of the column 400 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” of the Group Solvency report correspond with the row 300 “Goodwill” of the CA1 report on group level (subgroup level) in case of goodwill (not negative goodwill)? Furthermore, does the content of column 350 “Goodwill / Negative goodwill” of the Group Solvency exclusively concern the goodwill / negative goodwill referring to minority interests?

Large Exposures Reporting - Reporting of Shadow Banking Positions under EBA Taxonomy 3.0

Institutions are required to report information on the 10 largest exposures to institutions on a consolidated basis, and on the 10 largest exposures to shadow banking entities that carry out banking activities outside the regulated framework on a consolidated basis, in accordance with Article 394(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. The reporting instructions for template C27.00, Column 070 state: The type of the counterparty of the ten largest exposures to institutions and the ten largest exposures to shadow banking entities shall be specified by using “I” for institutions or “S” for shadow banking entities, which carry out banking activities outside the regulated framework. We have reviewed the information in DPM database published on 8-Apr, together with the DPM dictionary and annotated templates published on 18th Mar and note that this states that only 'I' or 'U' can be used in this instance. There is no mention of 'S'. This being the case, please advise how Shadow Banking positions should be classified?

Soglia di materialità - Calendar Provisioning - Matheriality threshold - Calendar provisioning

In merito al tema del “Calendar Provisioning” la soglia del 20% stabilita dall’Articolo 47a(3) del Regolamento (EU) No 575/2013 come modificato dal Regolamento 2019/630, sostituisce la soglia di contagio per singolo debitore del 5% attualmente in vigore (e che il 1° gennaio 2021 diventerà dell’1%, vedi Regolamento Delegato (UE) 2018/171)? O si riferisce invece ad altri aspetti?
