Form IPA: Delayed migration to XBRL

The Bank announced in Statistical Notice 2023/08 the final UAT window for Form IPA reporters ahead of the new form going live in December 2023 for the November 2023 reporting period. In order to get all firms fully onboarded on the new XBRL Form IPA, we will be opening a new UAT window early in 2024. Given the need for a further period of UAT, we will postpone the planned go-live originally scheduled for 7 December. The new go-live date will be conveyed to reporters early in 2024. In the meantime, Form IPA reporting will continue in the current format until a new go-live date is established.

Please also be advised the known issues log has now also been updated and can be found on the Statistical Reporting webpage.
