Reporting Form ARF 744.0A

ABS/RBA Housing Credit Stocks, Flows and Interest Rates (Standard)

Instructions

These instructions assist completion of Reporting Form ARF 744.0A ABS/RBA Housing Credit Stocks, Flows and Interest Rates (Standard) (ARF 744.0A). ARF 744.0A collects information relating to the housing stocks, flows and interest rates of ADIs and RFCs.

Information reported in ARF 744.0A 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 744.0A must be completed by each ADI and RFC 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.

Counterparties

For the purposes of this form, report only finance to households for housing purposes.

For the purposes of this form, households may exist in either the resident or non-resident sectors.

Positions with resident and non-resident households are collected separately. 

Types of finance

For the purposes of this form, finance includes loans.

When reporting information on the stock of outstanding finance (e.g. credit outstanding), only include finance that is held on-balance sheet, unless otherwise directed.

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 whether (and 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).

Credit outstanding & credit outstanding, net of offset account balances

Report outstanding finance under the category in which it sits as at the reporting date. For example, if a loan was originally classified as having a fixed interest rate but now has a variable interest rate then it must be reported as variable interest rate for the current reporting period.

Treatment of facilities

Where there is a finance facility with a mix of interest rate or repayment types, follow the instructions below unless otherwise directed.

When reporting on the number of facilities, report each facility once. Where interest rate types or repayment types are separately identified, report the number of facilities according to the predominant interest rate type or repayment type by value.

When reporting the value of finance, apportion across the relevant interest rate type and/or repayment type dimensions.

When reporting the weighted average interest rate, weight each interest rate by its corresponding balance outstanding. 

Values

Unless otherwise specifically stated, information reported on this form must comply with Australian Accounting Standards.

Report monetary amounts on ARF 744.0A in Australian dollars or the Australian dollar equivalent of the foreign currency. 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 744.0A as whole dollars.

Numbers

Report numbers on ARF 744.0A unscaled, as whole numbers for ADIs and RFCs.

Averages

Report averages on ARF 744.0A unscaled, as numbers to two decimal places.

Interest rates

ADIs and RFCs are required to report contractual interest rates. Report interest rates as an annualised percentage rate (on a 365 days per year basis) to two decimal places.

Refer to the interest rates definition for further guidance (ARS 701.0).

Cost of funds and margin

Report cost of funds and margin items as an annualised percentage rate to two decimal places.

Standard Business Reporting (SBR)

Report items on ARF 744.0A 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.

Reporting Form ARF 744.0B

ABS/RBA Housing Credit Stocks, Flows and Interest Rates (Reduced)

Instructions

These instructions assist completion of Reporting Form ARF 744.0B ABS/RBA Housing Credit Stocks, Flows and Interest Rates (Reduced) (ARF 744.0B). ARF 744.0B collects information relating to the housing stocks, flows and interest rates of ADIs and RFCs.

Information reported in ARF 744.0B 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 744.0B must be completed by each ADI and RFC 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.

Counterparties

For the purposes of this form, report only finance to households for housing purposes.

For the purposes of this form, households may exist in either the resident or non-resident sectors.

Positions with resident and non-resident households are collected separately. 

Types of finance

For the purposes of this form, finance includes loans.

When reporting information on the stock of outstanding finance (e.g. credit outstanding), only include finance that is held on-balance sheet, unless otherwise directed.

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 whether (and 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).

Credit outstanding & credit outstanding, net of offset account balances

Report outstanding finance under the category in which it sits as at the reporting date. For example, if a loan was originally classified as having a fixed interest rate but now has a variable interest rate then it must be reported as variable interest rate for the current reporting period.

Treatment of facilities

Where there is a finance facility with a mix of interest rate or repayment types, follow the instructions below unless otherwise directed.

When reporting on the number of facilities, report each facility once. Where interest rate types or repayment types are separately identified, report the number of facilities according to the predominant interest rate type or repayment type by value.

When reporting the value of finance, apportion across the relevant interest rate type and/or repayment type dimensions.

When reporting the weighted average interest rate, weight each interest rate by its corresponding balance outstanding. 

Values

Unless otherwise specifically stated, information reported on this form must comply with Australian Accounting Standards.

Report monetary amounts on ARF 744.0B in Australian dollars or the Australian dollar equivalent of the foreign currency. Convert amounts denominated in foreign currency to AUD in accordance with AASB 121.

Report values on ARF 744.0B as whole dollars.

Numbers

Report numbers on ARF 744.0B unscaled, as whole numbers for ADIs and RFCs.

Averages

Report averages on ARF 744.0B unscaled, as numbers to two decimal places.

Interest rates

ADIs and RFCs are required to report contractual interest rates. Report interest rates as an annualised percentage rate (on a 365 days per year basis) to two decimal places.

Refer to the interest rates definition for further guidance (ARS 701.0).

Standard Business Reporting (SBR)

Report items on ARF 744.0B 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.

4.         Housing loans to residents funded in the month – by loan-to-valuation ratio (at commitment)

Item 4 collects information on the flow of new finance to resident households for housing loans funded during the reporting period by loan-to-valuation ratio at commitment.

Reporting basis: report item 4 during the reporting period or as at the end of the reporting period as directed. 

Exclude finance to non-residents from item 4. 

Report the number, value and interest rate according to the characteristics of the loan (or facility) funded during the reporting period, even where the loan-to-valuation ratio calculated for that loan (or facility) includes other claims on the borrower – for example, due to second mortgage status or the nomination of more than one property as security.

If the loan (or facility) is for multiple purposes, report the entire loan (facility) value according to the predominant purpose.

Include the entire value of the commitment in the month in which it is funded, not just the amount drawn in that month.

In the event of an internal refinance, report the new value at commitment using the entire new loan balance.

If the loan is disbursed over a period of time (multiple drawdowns) then report the entire loan as being funded in the reporting period in which the funds are first made available to the borrower. Note that this differs from the standard treatment elsewhere in this form.

Report according to the property purpose (see item 4 for further details).

Column 2

Report according to the loan-to-valuation ratio at commitment (see item 4 for further details).
