Purpose

2.             Information collected by Reporting Form ARF 730.1 ABS/RBA Fees Charged (ARF 730.1) is used by the ABS and RBA for policy and statistical purposes. This information may also be used by APRA for prudential and publication purposes.

3.             This Reporting Standard is an Economic and Financial Statistics (EFS) Reporting Standard for the purposes of Reporting Standard ARS 701.0 ABS/RBA Definitions for the EFS Collection (ARS 701.0)

Application and commencement

4.             This Reporting Standard applies to an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) and registered financial corporations (RFCs) as set out in the table below, where ‘total assets’ are measured by the value reported in item 13 (column 1) on Reporting Form ARF 720.0A ABS/RBA Statement of Financial Position (Standard) (ARF 720.0A).

11.         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; and

(b)          the extent to which the information is required for the purposes of the ABS or RBA.

Quality control

13.         All information provided by an ADI or RFC under this Reporting Standard must be the product of systems, processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the external auditor of the ADI or RFC as set out in Prudential Standard APS 310 Audit and Related Matters for ADIs or Reporting Standard RRS 710.0 ABS/RBA Audit Requirements for Registered Financial Corporations for RFCs. Relevant standards and guidance statements issued by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board provide information on the scope and nature of the review and testing required from external auditors.

(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.

17.         If APRA makes such a variation it must notify in writing each ADI that is required to report under this Reporting Standard.

Reporting Form ARF 730.1

ABS/RBA Fees Charged

Instructions

These instructions assist completion of Reporting Form ARF 730.1 ABS/RBA Fees Charged (ARF 730.1). ARF 730.1 collects annual statistics on fees charged by ADIs.

Information reported in ARF 730.1 is required primarily for purposes of the ABS and the RBA. This information is required for various purposes, including policy and statistical purposes. This information may also be used by APRA for prudential and publication purposes.

Reporting level

ARF 730.1 must be completed by each ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies under paragraphs 4 or 5. 

Reporting basis and unit of measurement

These instructions specify the reporting basis and unit of measurement that applies to each item.

For reporting purposes, unless specified otherwise, enter data as a positive number.

Items on ARF 730.1 must be reported during the reporting period.

Counterparties

Report fees charged by the ADI’s operations/transactions in Australia (i.e. on a domestic books basis), including fees charged to residents and non-residents.  Accordingly, fees charged by entities outside the scope of domestic books such as funds management or insurance operations – are to be excluded from the data reported. 

Exclude fees charged to related parties.

Fees charged

This form does not follow Australian Accounting Standards for the treatment of fees.

All fees charged by the ADI (except those explicitly excluded below) must be reported in this form. This includes fees (such as establishment fees) that are recorded as interest income in statutory accounts. Report fees charged on an accruals basis.

Report fees charged net of any waivers, exemptions or rebates afforded to the customer. Do not deduct any expenses incurred by the ADI, including expenses relating to:

·                commissions paid to mortgage brokers;

·                valuation fees for housing and business loans;

·                loyalty program costs;

·                government taxes; and

·                charges imposed by the ADI’s group treasury to various business units.

Reporting by purpose

Classify finance at the lowest level at which it is able to be identified; the purpose that the funds will be used for determines where it is reported on this form. Where finance (identified at the lowest available level) is to be used for more than one purpose, classify that finance to its predominant purpose (based on the purpose for which the largest share of the funds will be used).

Values

Report monetary amounts on ARF 730.1 in Australian dollars or the Australian dollar equivalent of the foreign currency amount. Convert amounts denominated in foreign currency to AUD in accordance with AASB 121 The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates (AASB 121).

Report values on ARF 730.1 as whole dollars.

Standard Business Reporting (SBR)

Report items on ARF 730.1 with accounting type of debit (assets). The accounting type (i.e. credit or debit) applies to all monetary items and represents the natural accounting type of the item collected.
