Program Description

The Call Report is constantly changing, producing confusion and many questions. The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. The Call Report seminar presentation will be in the order of the schedules, starting with the Income Statement schedules followed by all Balance Sheet schedules. New, proposed, and revised changes will be discussed with the schedules they will impact and a summary of all recent updates will be included at the end of the manual.

Participants will receive a 300+ page manual and Ms. Thomas will be available to answer future Call Report questions by email. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Participants may want to bring their bank’s most recent Call Report for resolution of questions during the session. The FFIEC 041 & 051 forms will be used in the presentation and materials.

The regulators are continuing on their burden reducing approach and announced more reductions in November, 2018 to the FFIEC 051 forms. The regulators are proposing to increase the small bank eligibility size for filing on the FFIEC 051 form from $1 billion in assets size to $5 billion and to make more line items required only semi-annually. The most significant change to semi-annual reporting will be RCR Pt II lines 1-25, the detail reporting of both on and off balance sheet risk weighting. Total risk weighted assets however, will still be required to be reported. Banks with assets of more than $1 billion will be required to report the consumer deposit detail information on balances and service charges in December only; schedule RIC semi-annually; RCO M2 on a quarterly basis. In a second proposal the regulators are considering regulatory burden relief to qualifying community banking organizations by allowing an option to calculate a simple leverage ratio, rather than multiple measures of capital adequacy.

In September, 2018 the regulators issued proposed revisions to the 2019 Call Report to align the information in the call report with the new credit loss accounting standard. The changes include updates to twelve schedules to address the broader scope of financial assets for which an allowance for credit losses must be established and maintained. Under a CECL proposed notice of rulemaking, a bank may elect to phase in the regulatory capital impact of adopting CECL over a three year period.

In June, 2018 the regulators further burden reducing changes were implemented for both FFIEC 051 and 041 filers. The changes include consolidation and/or removal of several more line items and reductions in the frequency of reporting for about a dozen line items. The 051 form was originally approved in 2017 and may be used by domestic banks with less than $1 billion in assets. The 051 short form has approximately 25 fewer pages and eliminated 40% of the 041 line items as well as reducing the frequency of data collection in some of the schedules.

Additional changes to the June, 2018 Call Report were included in the supplement instructions. The regulators issued an update to the reporting of high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) exposures as well as reciprocal deposits.

Simplifications to the risk based capital rules were approved and effective for 2018. The rules simplify the threshold deduction treatment for mortgage servicing assets, deferred taxes arising from temporary differences that can’t be realized through carrybacks, and investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions.

What to Bring

Please bring a copy of your general ledger and your latest call report. Bankers find it useful to review classifications during the class as the line items are discussed.
