Call Report for Banks Virtual: Nuts & Bolts and Current Hot Spots
A 3-Day Virtual Program
The Call Report has been subject to many changes over the course of 2020 and continues to be impacted by economic, accounting and regulatory changes. Extensive changes took place over the course of the past few years and there are more on the horizon. Our recent challenges related to the economic crisis under COVID-19 have added to the reporting burden with changes impacting all financial institutions that will continue into 2021.
This virtual program will provide nine hours of training that will be presented in a 3-session/day format. This virtual will provide basic training for new preparers and include extensive coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. New, proposed, and revised changes will be presented in summary form at the beginning of the seminar with detailed discussion over the course of the three sessions as we work through the schedules impacted by the changes
applicable in current reporting as well as proposed reporting in the future.
In addition, some of the schedules will be covered in pre-recorded audio that will be available to all participants in order to allow for a deeper dive into some of the schedules that are applicable only to banks with certain activities. Refer to the schedule below for information about which schedules will be covered with pre-recorded audio.
Participants will receive handout materials that will be referred to throughout the seminar in support of the agenda items. The training will cover the FFIEC 041 and 051 forms and will be referred to in the presentation and materials. It is advised that participants bring a copy of their recent Call Report, or print out a copy of the form applicable to their Bank.
This 3-session virtual will cover general preparation instructions, background on regulatory matters that impact the Call Report, changes in reporting status impacted by COVID-19, regulatory rules to include the CARES Act and regulatory interim and final rules, and general
information about reporting requirements under U.S. GAAP.

Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Banks should have a trained preparer and a trained reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, reviewing, or signing a Call Report will find this program valuable. Experienced preparers and reviewers will benefit from the updates and the continued discussion on accounting and financial reporting matters. The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers, though some basic accounting knowledge is helpful, and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. Specific areas of concern should be communicated to the sponsor in advance of the seminar so that these areas can be covered with appropriate adequacy.
