Reporting Standard ARS 110.0

Capital Adequacy

Objective of this Reporting Standard

This Reporting Standard sets out the requirements for the provision of information to APRA relating to an authorised deposit-taking institution’s capital adequacy. It includes Reporting Form ARF 110.0 Capital Adequacy and associated instructions and should be read in conjunction with Prudential Standard APS 110 Capital Adequacy and Prudential Standard APS 111 Capital Adequacy: Measurement of Capital.

Authority

1.             This Reporting Standard is made under section 13 of the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001.

Purpose

2.             Information collected in Reporting Form ARF 110.0 Capital Adequacy (ARF 110.0) is used by APRA for the purpose of prudential supervision, including assessing compliance with Prudential Standard APS 110 Capital Adequacy (APS 110) and Prudential Standard APS 111 Capital Adequacy: Measurement of Capital (APS 111). It may also be used by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Application and commencement

3.             This Reporting Standard applies to all authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs) and immediate parent non-operating holding companies (NOHCs), with the exception of:

(a) foreign ADIs; and

(b) providers of purchased payment facilities.

4.             This Reporting Standard applies for reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2020.

Information required

5.             An ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 110.0 designated for an ADI at Level 1 for each reporting period.

6.             If an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies is part of a Level 2 group, the ADI must also provide APRA with the information required by the version of ARF 110.0 designated for an ADI at Level 2 for each reporting period, unless the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC. If the ADI is a subsidiary of an authorised NOHC, the ADI’s immediate parent NOHC must provide APRA with the information required by that form for each reporting period. In doing so, the immediate parent NOHC must comply with this Reporting Standard (other than paragraphs 5 and 12) as if it were the relevant ADI. 

Method of submission

7.             The information required by this Reporting Standard must be given to APRA in electronic format, using the ‘Direct to APRA’ application or by a method (i.e. web-based solution) notified by APRA, in writing, prior to submission.

Note: The Direct to APRA application software (also known as D2A) may be obtained from APRA.

Reporting periods and due dates

8.             Subject to paragraphs 9 and 10, an ADI to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard in respect of each quarter based on the ADI’s financial year (within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001). The due date for doing so is set out in paragraph 10.

9.             APRA may, by notice in writing, vary 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; or

(c)           the requirements of the RBA or the ABS.

10.         The information required by this Reporting Standard must be provided to APRA in accordance with the table below. The right hand column of the table sets out the number of business days after the end of the reporting period to which the information relates, within which information must be submitted to APRA by an ADI in each of the classes set out in the same row in the left hand column.

Class of ADI

ADI Reporting Category B – Advanced or Applicant Advanced

30

ADI Reporting Category B – Standardised

Foreign ADI

Not applicable

ADI Reporting Category A

Provider of purchased payment facilities

Not applicable

 

11.         APRA may, by notice in writing, extend the due date by which an ADI must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard, in which case the new due date will be the date specified in the notice of extension.

Quality control

12.         All information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard (except for the information required under paragraph 5) must be the product of systems, processes and controls that have been reviewed and tested by the external auditor of the ADI as set out in Prudential Standard APS 310 Audit and Related Matters. 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 under this Reporting Standard.

13.         All information provided by an ADI under this Reporting Standard must be subject to systems, processes and controls developed by the ADI 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.

Authorisation

14.         When an officer of an ADI submits information under this Reporting Standard using the D2A application, or other method notified by APRA, it will be necessary for the officer to digitally sign the relevant information using a digital certificate acceptable to APRA.

Minor alterations to forms and instructions

15.         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.

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

Transition

17.         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 by the determination that makes this Reporting Standard (being the reporting standard that this Reporting Standard replaces); and

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

(a)           that 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.

Note: For the avoidance of doubt, if an ADI was required to report under an old reporting standard, and the reporting documents were due before the date of revocation of the old reporting standard, the ADI is still required to provide any overdue reporting documents in accordance with the old reporting standard.

If an ADI is a subsidiary of a NOHC, the report at Level 2 is to be provided by the ADI’s immediate parent NOHC.[2]

 

Securitisation deconsolidation principle

Except as otherwise specified in these instructions, the following applies:

 

1.             Where an ADI (or a member of its Level 2 consolidated group[3]) participates in a securitisation that meets APRA’s operational requirements for regulatory capital relief under Prudential Standard APS 120 Securitisation (APS 120):

(a)           special purpose vehicles (SPVs) holding securitised assets may be treated as non-consolidated independent third parties for regulatory reporting purposes, irrespective of whether the SPVs (or their assets) are consolidated for accounting purposes;

(b)          the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of the relevant SPVs may be excluded from the ADI’s reported amounts in APRA’s regulatory reporting returns; and

(c)           the underlying assets (i.e. the pool) under such a securitisation may be excluded from the calculation of regulatory capital (refer to APS 120). However, the ADI must still hold regulatory capital for the securitisation exposures[4] that it retains or acquires and such exposures are to be reported in Reporting Form ARF 120.1 Securitisation – Regulatory Capital. The risk-weighted assets (RWA) relating to such securitisation exposures must also be reported in ARF 110.0.1 and ARF 110.0.2 (if applicable).

2.             Where an ADI (or a member of its Level 2 consolidated group) participates in a securitisation that does not meet APRA’s operational requirements for regulatory capital relief under APS 120, or the ADI undertakes a funding-only securitisation or synthetic securitisation, report such assets as on-balance sheet in APRA’s regulatory reporting returns. In addition, these assets must also be reported as a part of the ADI’s total securitised assets within Reporting Form ARF 120.2 Securitisation – Supplementary Items.

Capital treatment of joint arrangements

For capital adequacy purposes, ADIs must apply equity accounting for all joint arrangements, including joint ventures and joint operations. 

Reporting period and timeframes for lodgement

The forms are to be completed as at the last day of the stated reporting period (i.e. the relevant quarter). The following table specifies the number of business days after the end of the relevant reporting period within which each class of ADI must submit data to APRA.

Class of ADI

Number of business days

ADI Reporting Category B – Advanced or Applicant Advanced

30

ADI Reporting Category B – Standardised

20

ADI Reporting Category A

15

An immediate parent NOHC must submit data to APRA within the same timeframe as its subsidiary ADI.

Where both ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Standardised’ and ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ reporting requirements and timeframes apply to an ADI

 

In the following cases an ADI Reporting Category B must meet reporting requirements and timeframes applicable to both an ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ and an ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Standardised’:

 

(a)           where the ADI is operating under the standardised approaches to credit and operational risk, but has applied for Internal Ratings-based (IRB) and Advanced Measurement Approach (AMA) approval, in which case the ADI will be both an ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Advanced or Applicant Advanced’ and an ‘ADI Reporting Category B – Standardised’; and

 

(b)          where the ADI has received IRB or AMA approval in respect of most (but not all) of its operations, and has approval for partial use of the standardised approaches to credit and/or operational risk for the remainder of its operations.

 

Such an ADI must report under ARF 110.0.1 and ARF 110.0.2 (the forms) as follows:

SECTION B: RISK PROFILE

This section summarises an ADI’s RWA amounts for credit, operational and market risks and any other charges as required by APRA. To convert a capital charge for operational risk, market risk or any other item to a RWA equivalent amount, the amount of the charge must be multiplied by a factor of 12.5. The total RWA amount is used to calculate the capital adequacy ratio.

This form is designed to be used by all ADIs, irrespective of the approaches an individual ADI is applying to credit risk, operational risk and market risk. Consequently, not all line items are relevant to each ADI. An ADI must determine the line items it is required to complete based on the approaches it is applying.

1.    Credit risk

1.1   Credit risk (excluding securitisation)

This section captures the total credit risk-weighted amount of on-balance sheet assets and the risk-weighted credit equivalent amount of off-balance sheet exposures at Level 1/Level 2.

Securitisation exposures, risk-weighted in accordance with APS 120, are excluded from the amounts reported under section B, item 1.1 (refer to section B, item 1.2 below).

1.1.1       Standardised approach

This item applies to an ADI using the standardised approach to credit risk.

Report the total RWA amount of the on-balance sheet assets and off-balance sheet exposures determined in accordance with APS 112, as captured in Reporting Form ARF 112.1 Standardised Credit Risk - On-balance Sheet Assets (ARF 112.1) and Reporting Form ARF 112.2 Standardised Credit Risk - Off-balance Sheet Exposures (ARF 112.2) respectively.

Partial use of the standardised approach to credit risk

Where APRA has permitted an ADI with IRB approval partial use of the standardised approach to credit risk for certain asset classes or business lines (refer to APS 113), the ADI is to report the RWA amount of exposures subject to the standardised approach in this item.

1.1.2       Foundation IRB approach

This item only applies to an ADI with approval to use the foundation internal-ratings based (FIRB) approach to credit risk (refer to APS 113).

Report the total RWA amount of the on-balance sheet exposures and off-balance sheet exposures determined under the FIRB approach to credit risk, as captured in the FIRB Reporting Forms -  ARF 113.0A to ARF 113.0E (ARF 113.0A to ARF 113.0E).

1.1.3       Advanced IRB approach

This item only applies to an ADI with approval to use the advanced internal-ratings based (AIRB) approach to credit risk (refer to APS 113).

Report the total RWA amount of the on-balance sheet exposures and off-balance sheet exposures determined under the AIRB approach to credit risk, as captured in the AIRB Reporting Forms – ARF 113.1A to ARF 113.1E (ARF 113.1A to ARF 113.1E).

1.1.6       IRB other assets, claims and exposures

This item only applies to an ADI with IRB approval.

Report the total RWA amount of other assets, claims and exposures under the IRB approach to credit risk (refer to APS 113), as captured in Reporting Form ARF 113.4 IRB – Other Assets, Claims and Exposures (ARF 113.4).

1.2   Securitisation

This section captures the total RWA amount that is attributable to an ADI’s securitisation exposures at Level 1 or Level 2, determined in accordance with APS 120.

Report total RWA for securitisation exposures, as reported under ARF 120.1.

1.3    Scaling factor (1 or 1.06)

This item only applies to an ADI with IRB approval.

An ADI using the IRB approach to credit risk is required to scale up its RWA amounts that are derived from the IRB risk-weight functions by a factor of 1.06 (refer to APS 113). The scaling factor does not apply to RWA that are derived from specific (defined) risk-weights (i.e. RWA amounts for specialised lending supervisory slotting and other assets, claims and exposures).

In some cases, an ADI may have already applied this scaling factor to its exposures prior to reporting to APRA.

Where an ADI is reporting RWA amounts to which:

(a)           the scaling factor has already been applied, the ADI must enter a value of 1 in this field;

(b)          the scaling factor has not been applied, the ADI must enter a value of 1.06 in this field.

1.4    Total RWA for credit risk

Derived field calculating the total credit RWA amount for an ADI, irrespective of the approach (or approaches) it is using to credit risk. For an ADI using the IRB approach, this derived field takes into account the scaling factor entered by the ADI.

Partial use of the standardised approach to operational risk

Where APRA has permitted an ADI with approval to use the advanced measurement approaches to operational risk (AMA approval), partial use of the standardised approach to operational risk for certain business activities (refer to Prudential Standard APS 115 Capital Adequacy: Advanced Measurement Approaches to Operational Risk (APS 115)), the ADI is to report the RWA equivalent amount of the operational risk regulatory capital calculated under the standardised approach in this item.

2.2   Advanced measurement approaches

This item only applies to an ADI with AMA approval.

Report the RWA equivalent amount of operational risk regulatory capital calculated using an AMA (refer to APS 115), as captured in Reporting Form ARF 115.0A AMA – Regulatory Capital (ARF 115.0A).

2.3   Total RWA for operational risk

Derived field calculating the total RWA amount for an ADI’s operational risk, irrespective of the approach (or approaches) it is using.

3.    Market risk

This section captures the RWA equivalent amount of the market risk capital requirement of an ADI at Level 1 or Level 2.

3.1    Interest rate risk in the banking book – Internal model approach

This item only applies to an ADI for which APRA has approved the use of an internal model approach to interest rate risk in the banking book (IRRBB) for determining regulatory capital (refer to Prudential Standard APS 117 Capital Adequacy: Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (Advanced ADIs) (APS 117)).

4.    Other charges as required by APRA

4.1Total other charges as required by APRA

Report the RWA equivalent amount of any additional capital charge imposed on the ADI by APRA.

5.    Total for credit risk, operational risk and market risk

5.1Total RWA

This is a derived field that sums the RWA amounts for all categories.  This figure forms the denominator for calculating the risk-based capital ratios of an ADI.

SECTION C: Risk ratioS

1.      Risk-based capital ratios
