Federal Issues

On April 9, the FFIEC released two depository institution reports—Capital-related Revisions to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) and the FFIEC 101 Report, and Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for First Quarter 2020. The reports reiterate the agencies’ March 25 statement (covered by InfoBytes here) that March 31, 2020 Call Reports submitted after the filing deadline will not result in agency action, if “the report is submitted within 30 days of the official filing date.” Additionally, they explain that Call Report instructions were impacted by three interim final rules (IFRs) the agencies recently released due to issues caused by Covid-19. The regulatory capital IFRs cover: (i) the Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility (MMLF) IFR (covered here); (ii) the Standardized Approach for Calculating the Exposure Amount of Derivative Contracts (SA-CCR rule) IFR (covered here); and (iii) the transition of Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) IFR (covered here). A notice regarding eligible retained income, along with the three IFRs, not only affected the instructions for March 31, 2020 Call Reports, but also impacted calculation instructions for regulatory capital on Schedule RC-R, and FFIEC 101 for regulatory capital reporting for institutions that use the advanced capital adequacy framework. The FFIEC’s updated instructions for the first quarter call report may be found here, and the updated instructions for the first quarter FFIEC 101 may be found here.

CARES Act information was also added to the appendix of the Quarterly Call Report Supplemental Instructions to include section 2302, “Modifications for Net Operating Losses,” section 4013, “Temporary Relief from Troubled Debt Restructurings,” and section 4014, “Optional Temporary Relief from Current Expected Credit Losses.”
