Data collection

This information is for firms that provide data to the Bank of England. There are many different ways to send us your data, depending on what type of data it is. This page contains all forms that we use to collect data, along with supporting documents and contact details.

Who has to provide us with statistical data? 

Any financial institution that has permission from the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) to accept deposits has to provide us with data.

What you have to report depends on the size and type of your business. Once the PRA has granted you permission to accept deposits, we will tell you what your statistical reporting requirements are in writing. If you are unsure of your current obligations, email DSDCompliance@bankofengland.co.uk for more information.
