Program Description

The Call Report is constantly changing, producing confusion and many questions. This two-part Call Report Update Virtual Education program will provide training for experienced preparers and reviewers and will include complete coverage of new and complex issues impacting the Call Report preparation, to include the changes resulting from COVID-19 initiatives. New, proposed, and revised changes will be presented in summary form at the beginning of the program followed by a more detailed discussion as specific schedules are reviewed and discussed.

Participants will receive a workbook in addition to the presentation materials that will be referred to throughout the program. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Training will be conducted from current FFIEC 041 and 051 forms that will be used in the presentation and materials.

Specific areas within the Call Report that commonly contain errors will be pointed out over the course of the presentation as specific schedules are discussed.


  • Proposed and approved changes to the 2020 and 2019 Call Reports as well as other recent revisions.
  • The impact of COVID-19 initiatives on reporting guaranteed loans under the Payroll Protection Program (PPP), the recognition of fees on PPP loans, reporting loan modifications, changes relative to the Community Bank Leverage Ratio (CBLR) requirements for 2020 and 2021, and CECL reporting requirements under the delayed adoption alternative.
  • Summary and outline of the implementation timelines for new Accounting Standards Updates related to Leases, Credit Losses (CECL), Revenue Recognition relative to bank financed sales of ORE, accounting for Equity Securities, and Premiums on Callable Debt Securities.

  • Reporting HELOCs in RC-C as open-end vs closed-end loans.

Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Banks should train a preparer and reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, auditing, or signing the Call Report will find the program valuable. The seminar is designed for more experienced preparers and reviewers interested in new reporting requirements.

Annual training in Call Report preparation is highly recommended by bank regulators, not just for preparers of the Call Report, but also for reviewers. A reviewer needs to understand the reporting requirements and should spend at least 3-4 hours performing a detailed check of the completed Call Report schedules and supporting documentation. New and experienced preparers and reviewers require ongoing training in order to stay current on matters impacting financial reporting.
