Forms AD and AL rolling review (effective end-January 2019 reporting)

Forms AD and AL have been reviewed as part of the rolling programme of reviews of statistical returns outlined in the Bank’s Statistical Code of Practice. Users of the data were consulted regarding their current and future requirements and these proposals were subsequently discussed with industry representatives in the BBA Statistics Advisory Panel.

The new versions of Forms AD and AL, Definitions and Validations will be published around the end of the year, alongside an accompanying Statistical Notice.

Changes to Forms AD and AL

  • Holding companies need to be separately identified within their respective industries. Further guidance on this can be found in the document titled Guidance on the Reporting of Holding Companies within the Frequently Asked Questions on the Bank's website.
  • Some further industrial sectors are to be separately identified within the other financial industries.

Changes to Form AD

  • Removal of the ‘on behalf of’ breakdown of the fund management industrial sector
  • Total deposit liabilities (including under repos) to separately break out deposit instruments with a sight and time split.

Changes to Form AL

  • A maturity breakdown of loans and advances into up to one year and over one year

Implications for Form PL

For Form PL, holding companies’ interest payments on loans and interest receipts on deposits should be reported under captive financial institutions for the respective sector. Reporting changes should come into effect consistently across Forms AD, AL and PL.
