This 90-minute bank accounting webinar covers the basic requirements for the three (3) quarterly bank “Call Reports.”
It leaves attendees with an appreciation of the purpose of this important government report and places significant emphasis on underlying accounting issues that affect the amounts on the applicable lines and schedules of the Call Reports.
This bank accounting training provides information about:
- The three reporting Forms (#031, #041 and #051)
- The purpose of the Call Report
- GAAP vs. RAP
- Call Report filing methods
- Call Report filing responsibilities
- Software vendors (preparation help for filers)
Training focuses on both the balance sheet (Schedule RC) and the Income Statement (Schedule RI) and the related Schedules that “feed into” those two basic financial statements. The differences and similarities between the three Forms are highlighted. Particular emphasis is placed on FFIEC Form #051 for smaller depository institutions – the Form designed to reduce the regulatory burden associated with Forms #031 and #041.
This banking webinar also provides an excellent overview of both the balance sheet (Schedule RC) lines and the Income Statement (Schedule RI) lines and each balance sheet and income statement supporting schedule. This course is a fine introductory course for “newcomers” who are preparing, reviewing, auditing or analyzing the Call Report. It is also an excellent refresher for those with prior Call Report involvement and experience.
