Call Report, A Review & Update

Feb 26, 2019
IBA Center for Professional Development
8425 Woodfield Crossing Blvd., Suite 155E
Program Overview: 

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 accounting 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 implemented further burden reducing changes 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 supplemental instructions.  The regulators issued an update to the reporting of high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) exposures as well as reciprocal deposits.

Attendee Profile

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.  New and experienced preparers and reviewers should be trained,; however, the one day class is designed more for bankers with some knowledge of the call report.  Annual training is highly recommended by bank regulators.

$225 IBA Members
