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) or registered financial corporation (RFC) as set out in the table below, where ‘repos and securities lending’ is measured by the sum of the values reported in items 10.4 and 18.6 on Reporting Form ARF 720.0A/B Statement of Financial Position (Standard)/(Reduced) (ARF 720.0A/B).

Class of financial institution

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

13.         APRA may grant an ADI or RFC 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

14.         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. This review and testing must be done on an annual basis or more frequently if required by the external auditor to enable the external auditor to form an opinion on the accuracy and reliability of the information provided by an ADI or RFC under this Reporting Standard.

15.         All information provided by an ADI or RFC under this Reporting Standard must be subject to systems, processes and controls developed by the ADI or RFC for the internal review and authorisation of that information. These systems, processes and controls are to assure the completeness and reliability of the information provided.

Reporting level

ARF 721.0A or ARF 721.0B must be completed by each ADI and RFC to which this reporting standard applies under paragraphs 4 or 5. The choice of option is at the discretion of the ADI or RFC; however, any change in the option selected must be communicated to APRA in advance.
