In January, 2017, the Agencies announced the approval of a new FFIEC 051 form effective with the March, 2017 call report. For domestic banks with less than $1 billion in assets the new 051 form will reduce the number of pages in the call report from 85 to 60 and eliminate 40% of the existing line items. The frequency of data collection is also reduced for some of the schedules.
In July, 2016, the Agencies finalized the changes to the March, 2017 and September, 2016 Call Reports. The revisions include burden-reducing changes, as well as revised items, and a couple of instructional changes. The most significant change is the increase in the CD deposit threshold from $100,000 to $250,000, which will be effective with the March, 2017 Call Report.
Basel III risk-based capital changes became effective with the first call report filing in 2015. The line items related to the Capital Conservation Buffer were required for the first time in March, 2016. We'll review clarifications on the risk reporting of loan categories, deferred tax assets, equity securities, unused commitments, and interest rate locks.
