COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1423/2013

of 20 December 2013

laying down implementing technical standards with regard to disclosure of own funds requirements for institutions according to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 437(2) and the third subparagraph of Article 492(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 incorporates the internationally-agreed standards of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s third International Regulatory Framework for banks (2) (hereinafter referred to as ‘Basel III’). Therefore, and also given that the objective of disclosure requirements is to help improve transparency in the area of regulatory capital, for comparison purposes, the rules set out for disclosure by institutions supervised under Directive 2013/36/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) should be consistent with the international framework reflected in the ‘Composition of Capital disclosure requirements’ (4) of the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision adapted to take into account the Union regulatory framework and its specificities.

(2)

A set of disclosure templates should be provided in order to ensure the uniform application of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Such disclosure templates should include an own funds disclosure template, aiming at reflecting the detailed capital position of institutions; and a capital instruments’ features template, aiming at reflecting the level of detail required to be disclosed with regard to the features of an institution’s capital instruments.

(3)

The scope of consolidation for accounting purposes and for regulatory purposes is different, and this results in differences between the information used in the calculation of own funds and the information used in the published financial statements, in particular for own funds items. In order to address the disparity between the data used for the calculation of own funds and the data used in institutions’ financial statements, it is necessary to also disclose how elements in the financial statements that are used to calculate own funds change when the regulatory scope of consolidation is applied. Therefore a balance sheet reconciliation methodology providing information on the reconciliation between balance sheet items used to calculate own funds and regulatory own funds should also be included in this Regulation. For that purpose, a regulatory scope balance sheet, covering only own funds items, should be used.

(4)

The financial statements of some institutions subject to these disclosure requirements are extensive and complex. It is necessary to set out a uniform approach which follows clearly presented steps in order to assist institutions in establishing their balance sheet reconciliation.

(5)

The provisions in this Regulation are closely linked, since they deal with disclosure of own funds items. To ensure coherence between those provisions, which should enter into force at the same time, and to facilitate a comprehensive view and compact access to them by persons subject to those obligations, it is desirable to include all the implementing technical standards required by Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 in relation to disclosure of own funds in a single Regulation.

(6)

Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 contains a substantial number of transitional provisions with regard to own funds and own funds requirements. In order to provide a meaningful picture of the solvency situation of institutions, it is appropriate to introduce a different disclosure template for the transitional period reflecting the transitional provisions of the Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

(7)

Since the date of application of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 is 1 January 2014 and since institutions will need to adapt their systems in order to comply with the requirements laid down in this Regulation, they should be given a sufficient amount of time to do so.

(8)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the European Banking Authority to the European Commission.

(9)

The European Banking Authority has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

ANNEX I

Balance Sheet Reconciliation Methodology

(1)

Institutions shall apply the methodology described in this Annex in order to provide information on the reconciliation between balance sheet items used to calculate own funds and regulatory own funds. Own funds items in the audited financial statements shall include all items that are components of or are deducted from regulatory own funds, including equity, liabilities such as debt, or other balance sheet lines that affect regulatory own funds such as intangible assets, goodwill, deferred tax assets.

(2)

Institutions shall use as a starting point the relevant balance sheet items used to calculate own funds as in their published financial statements. Financial statements shall be considered audited financial statements when reconciliation is carried out against the year-end financial statements.

(3)

Where institutions meet the obligations laid down in Part Eight of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 on a consolidated or sub-consolidated basis and where the scope of consolidation or the method for consolidation used in the balance sheet in the financial statements are different from the scope of consolidation and method for consolidation required pursuant to Chapter 2 of Title II of Part One of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions shall also disclose the regulatory scope balance sheet, meaning a balance sheet which is drawn up according to the rules on prudential consolidation pursuant to Chapter 2 of Title II of Part One of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and which is limited to own funds items. The regulatory scope balance sheet shall be at least as detailed as the balance sheet in the financial statements for own funds items, and its items shall be displayed side by side with a clear mapping with the own funds items of the balance sheet in the financial statements. Institutions shall provide qualitative and quantitative information on the differences in own funds items due to the scope and method for consolidation between the two balance sheets.

(4)

Secondly, institutions shall expand the own funds items of the regulatory scope balance sheet such that all of the components required by the transitional disclosure template or in the own funds disclosure template appear separately. Institutions shall only expand elements of the balance sheet up to the level of granularity that is necessary for deriving the components required by the transitional disclosure template or the own funds disclosure template.

(5)

Thirdly, institutions shall establish a mapping between the elements resulting from the expanding of the regulatory scope balance sheet as described in paragraph 4 with the elements included in the transitional disclosure template or in the own funds disclosure template.

(6)

Where institutions comply with the obligations laid down in Part Eight of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 on a consolidated or sub-consolidated basis but the scope of consolidation and the method for consolidation used for the balance sheet in the financial statements are identical to the scope of consolidation and the method for consolidation defined pursuant to Chapter 2 of Title II of Part One of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, and institutions clearly state the absence of differences between the respective scopes and methods for consolidation, only paragraphs 4 and 5 of this Annex shall apply on the basis of the balance sheet in the financial statements.

(7)

Where institutions meet the obligations laid down in Part Eight of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 on an individual basis, paragraph 3 of this Annex shall not apply and paragraphs 4 and 5 of this Annex shall instead apply on the basis of the balance sheet in the financial statements.

(8)

The balance sheet reconciliation information on own funds items resulting from the application of the methodology described in this Annex may be provided in an unaudited format.
