Accumulated Changes in Fair Value due to Credit Risk

Tables 4.1, 4.2, 6, 8, 20.4, 20.7 and 45.1 all require information pertaining to accumulated changes in fair value due to credit risk, and point the respondent to Annex V.46 and IFRS 7.9 as technical references. Annex V.46 requires that “accumulated changes in fair value due to credit risk” figures shall be reported for financial assets at fair value through profit or loss”. The related IFRS guidance (IFRS 7.9) under the heading “Financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss” requires that if the entity has designated as measured at fair value a financial asset (or group of financial assets) that would otherwise be measured at amortised cost, it shall disclose . . . the amount of change, during the period and cumulatively in the fair value of the financial asset (or group of financial assets) that is attributable to changes in the credit risk of the financial asset”. Could the EBA confirm that this request relates only to financial assets that would otherwise be measured at amortised cost, and that it does not relate to trading assets?

Application of definition of forborne items, described in the EBA final draft ITS on supervisory reporting on forbearance and non-performing expoures under article 99(4) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

When do the reporting institutions have to start utilizing and identifying the forborne exposures? In accordance with the EBA final draft ITS on supervisory reporting on forbearance and non-performing exposures under article 99(4) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, the definitions of forbearance and non-performing are expected to enter into force in September 2014 (reference date), with remittance date of 31 December 2014. Applying the statement above, starting September 30, 2014, the reporting institutions will begin tracking and identifying the forborne exposures. This will imply a prospective application of the requirement (after September 30, 2014). Would that interpretation be correct?

Validations

There are several validations that do not appear to work given the contents of the cells referenced. Can you please advise as to the appropriate treatment for these items? 1. v1074_m This validation requires the sum of the counterparty split of mortgage loans [Loans collateralized by immovable property] on Table 5 to equal the sum of Row 10 columns 10 and 20 on Table 13, which represents residential and commercial Mortgage loans [Loans collateralized by immovable property]. sum({F 13.01, r010, (c010-020)}) = sum({F 05.00, r090, (c020-060)}) However, the instructions to Table 5 indicate that the loan balances should be reported in this table. In Template 13.1, the “maximum amount of the collateral or guarantee that can be considered” shall be reported. The sum of the amounts of a financial guarantee and/or collateral shown in the related columns of template 13.1 shall not exceed the carrying amount of the related loan. Therefore, the validation does not seem to be appropriate given the loan balance may not be equal to the amount of the guarantee/collateral. 2. v1235_m This validation requires that the opening balance of Profit/loss Attributable to owners of the parent equal the closing balance from the prior year. {F 46.00, r010, c100} = {F 46.00, r210, c100} t-1 However, as this is a p&l column, the opening balance should always be 0 as the p&l is rolled into retained earnings every year. 3. v1350_m This validation formula references Table 2 row 320, however this row does not exist. sum({F 20.03, r120, (c010-020)}) = {F 02.00, r320,c010} 4. v1324_m This validation states the opening balance of Profit/loss Attributable to owners of the parent per the Statement of Changes in Equity should equal Profit/loss Attributable to owners of the parent on the balance sheet from the prior period. The FAQ's released by the EBA in March stated "Templates referring to a period shall be reported cumulatively from the first day of the accounting year to the reference date." {F 46.00, r010, c100} = {F 01.03, r250, c010} t-1. We do not understand the reference to IAS 27.28. The validation v0786_m states that Profit/loss Attributable to owners of the parent is an income statement measure as it validates to the Statement of Profit or Loss. As a p&l measure would get closed out into retained earnings at the end of each year, this validation does not appear to work. Is the EBA intending Table 1.3 row 250 to represent p&l for the year? The reference to IAS1.83(a)(ii) is invalid as it has been removed from the standard. Is the EBA intending Table 1.3 row 250 to represent p&l for the year? The reference to IAS1.83(a)(ii) is invalid as it has been removed from the standard. 5. v1236_m This validation requires that the opening balance of Interim Dividends equal the closing balance from the prior year {F 46.00, r010, c110} = {F 46.00, r210, c110} t-1 Is this supposed to represent the balance sheet value of accrued but not paid dividends? 6. v1325_m This validation states the opening balance of Interim Dividends per the Statement of Changes in Equity should equal Interim Dividends on the balance sheet from the prior year. Is this supposed to represent cumulative distributions or distributions for the year? If the latter, the validation does not work. {F 46.00, r010, c110} = {F 01.03, r260, c010} t-1

Original Exposure pre-conversion Factors

The draft ITS on Supervisory reporting state that the Exposure value (for on-balance sheet exposures) equals to the exposure value without taking into account value adjustments and provisions, conversion factors and the effect of credit risk mitigation techniques. However, article 111(1) states that "The exposure value of an asset item shall be its accounting value remaining after specific credit risk adjustments". Additionally, the accounting value of an exposure is net of certain value adjustments e.g. non-recoverable income, etc. If for example, we have a customer loan with the following data: A. Balance: 100 B. Non-recoverable income -10 (usually from non-accrual status) C. Gross Accounting value (A+B) 90 D. Provisions -20 E. Net Exposure (C+D) 70 What is the Original Exposure pre-conversion Factors, A or C?

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?
