Reporting Standard ARS 321.0

Statement of Financial Position (Offshore Operations)

Objective of this reporting standard

This reporting standard is made under section 13 of the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001. It requires all locally-incorporated banks and locally-incorporated special service providers to report to APRA, generally on a quarterly basis, in relation to their statement of financial position (offshore operations).

This reporting standard outlines the overall requirements for the provision of relevant information to APRA. It should be read in conjunction with Form ARF 321.0 Statement of Financial Position (Offshore Operations) and the instructions to that form (all of which are attached and form part of this reporting standard).

 

Purpose

1.             Data collected in Form ARF 321.0 Statement of Financial Position (Offshore Operations) (Form ARF 321.0) is used by APRA for the purpose of prudential supervision. It may also be used by the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Application

2.             This reporting standard applies to locally-incorporated banks and locally-incorporated special service providers.

Information required

3.             A relevant authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) must provide APRA with the information required by Form ARF 321.0 for each reporting period.

Forms and method of submission

4.             The information required by this reporting standard must be given to APRA either:

(a)           in electronic form, using one of the electronic submission mechanisms provided by the ‘Direct to APRA’ (also known as ‘D2A’) application; or

(b)          manually completed on paper, which must be faxed or mailed to APRA’s head office.

Note: the Direct to APRA application software and paper forms may be obtained from APRA.

Reporting periods and due dates

5.             Subject to paragraph 6, a relevant ADI must provide the information required by this reporting standard for each quarter based on the financial year (within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001) of the ADI.

6.             APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods, or specified reporting periods, for a particular ADI, to require it to provide the information required by this reporting standard more frequently, or less frequently, having regard to:

(a)           the particular circumstances of the ADI;

(b)          the extent to which the information is required for the purposes of the prudential supervision of the ADI; and

(c)           the requirements of the Reserve Bank of Australia or the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

7.             The information required by this reporting standard must be provided to APRA by 20 business days after the end of the reporting period to which it relates.

8.             APRA may grant an ADI an extension of a due date in writing, in which case the new due date for the provision of the information will be the date on the notice of extension.

Quality control

9.             The information provided by an ADI under this reporting standard must be the product of processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the external auditor of the ADI. AGS 1008 ‘Audit Implications of Prudential Reporting Requirements for Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions’, issued by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board provides guidance on the scope and nature of the review and testing required from external auditors. This review and testing must be done on an annual basis or more frequently if necessary to enable the external auditor to form an opinion on the accuracy and reliability of the data.

10.         All information provided by an ADI under this reporting standard must be subject to processes and controls developed by the ADI for the internal review and authorisation of that information. It is the responsibility of the board and senior management of the ADI to ensure that an appropriate set of policies and procedures for the authorisation of data submitted to APRA is in place.

Authorisation

11.         If an ADI submits information under this reporting standard using the ‘Direct to APRA’ software, it will be necessary for an officer of the ADI to digitally sign, authorise and encrypt the relevant data. For this purpose, APRA’s certificate authority will issue ‘digital certificates’, for use with the software, to officers of the ADI who have authority from the ADI to transmit the data to APRA.

12.         If information under this reporting standard is provided in paper form, it must be signed on the front page of the relevant completed form by either:

(a)           the Principal Executive Officer of the ADI; or

(b)          the Chief Financial Officer of the ADI (whatever his or her official title may be).

Minor alterations to forms and instructions

13.         APRA may make minor variations to:

(a)           a form that is part of this reporting standard, and the instructions to such a form, to correct technical, programming or logical errors, inconsistencies or anomalies; or

(b)          the instructions to a form, to clarify their application to the form

without changing any substantive requirement in the form or instructions.

14.         If APRA makes such a variation it must notify in writing each ADI that is required to report under this reporting standard.

Transitional

15.         An ADI must report under the old reporting standard in respect of a transitional reporting period. For these purposes:

old reporting standard means the reporting standard revoked in the determination making this reporting standard (being the reporting standard which this reporting standard replaces).

transitional reporting period means a reporting period under the old reporting standard:

(a)           which ended before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard; and

(b)           in relation to which the ADI was required, under the old reporting standard, to report by a date on or after the date of revocation of the old reporting standard.

18.         APRA may in writing determine that an ADI is taken to be a locally-incorporated bank or a locally-incorporated special service provider for the purposes of this reporting standard (even if, under paragraph 16 or 17, it comes within a different classification).

Reporting Form ARF 321.0

Statement of Financial Position (Offshore Operations)

Instruction Guide

This instruction guide is designed to assist in the completion of the Statement of Financial Position for the Offshore Operations reporting entity.

General directions and notes

Reporting entity

This form is to be completed by all locally incorporated banks and Special Service Providers (SSPs).

Foreign authorised deposit-taking institution (ADIs) operating through branches in Australia are not required to complete this form.

Securitisation deconsolidation principle

Except where stated otherwise on this form, reporting entities must treat any securitisation program special purpose vehicles (SPVs) in which the ADI (or a member of its consolidated group) participates in accordance with APRA’s clean sale and separation requirements as non-consolidated independent third parties. As a result, for reporting purposes all assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of these SPVs must be excluded from the ADI’s reported amounts. Where relevant, report on this form any exposure to or other transaction between the ADI and any such SPV as if such transaction was conducted with an independent third party, regardless of whether the SPV or its assets is consolidated for accounting purposes.

APRA's clean sale and separation requirements are set out in APS 120 Funds Management and Securitisation and related Guidance Notes AGN 120.3 Purchase and Supply of Assets (including Securities Issued by SPVs) and AGN 120.1 Disclosure and Separation. Whenever the clean sale and separation requirements are not met, all the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of the SPV are to be consolidated with the ADI’s reported amounts.

Reporting period

The form is to be completed as at the last day of the stated reporting quarter. Locally incorporated banks and SSPs should submit the completed form to APRA within 20 business days after the end of the relevant reporting quarter.

Unit of measurement

Banks are asked to complete the form in millions of Australian dollars rounded to one decimal place. SSPs are asked to complete the form in whole Australian dollars (no decimal place). 

Amounts denominated in foreign currency are to be converted to AUD in accordance with AASB 121 The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates (AASB 121).

The general requirements of AASB 121 for translation are:

1.             foreign currency monetary items outstanding at the reporting date must be translated at the spot rate at the reporting date;

2.             foreign currency non-monetary items that are measured at historical cost in a foreign currency must be translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction;[1]

3.             foreign currency non-monetary items that are measured at fair value will be translated at the exchange rate at the date when fair value was determined.

Transactions arising under foreign currency derivative contracts at the reporting date must be prepared in accordance with AASB 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement (AASB 139).  However, those foreign currency derivatives that are not within the scope of AASB 139 (e.g. some foreign currency derivatives that are embedded in other contracts) remain within the scope of AASB 121.

For APRA purposes equity items must be translated using the foreign currency exchange rate at the date of investment or acquisition. Post acquisition changes in equity are required to be translated on the date of the movement.

As foreign currency derivatives are measured at fair value, the currency derivative contracts are translated at the spot rate at the reporting date.

Exchange differences should be recognised in profit and loss in the period which they arise. For foreign currency derivatives, the exchange differences would be recognised immediately in profit and loss if the hedging instrument is a fair value hedge. For derivatives used in a cash flow hedge, the exchange differences should be recognised directly in equity.

The ineffective portion of the exchange differences in all hedges would be recognised in profit and loss; and

4.             translation of financial reports of foreign operations.

A foreign operation is defined in AASB 121 as meaning an entity that is a subsidiary, associate, joint venture or branch of a reporting entity, the activities of which are based or conducted in a country or currency other than those of the reporting entity.

·               Exchange differences relating to foreign currency monetary items that form part of the net investment of an entity in a foreign operation, must be recognised as a separate component of equity.

·               Translation of financial reports should otherwise follow the requirements in AASB 121.

Netting

Unless otherwise specifically stated, institutions are allowed to take advantage of netting agreements in relation to disclosure of data items in this form. Institutions are to comply with the prerequisite for netting outlined in Australian accounting standards AASB 139, AASB 132 Financial Instruments: Disclosure and Presentation (AASB 132) and AASB 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures (AASB 7) and any relevant prudential standards.

Term to maturity

References to term to maturity in this form are references to residual term to maturity.

Basis of preparation

Unless otherwise specifically stated, institutions are to comply with Australian accounting standards regarding the measurement of asset, liability and equity items.

Classification schema

While this information is provided as a reference guide for the disclosure of the loans and advances portfolios and deposit portfolios as required in the form), it can be also be used as a general guide for other classifications in the form.

In defining sectors (refer below), the following three broad classifications are used:

1.             Private/public classification
