How to classify loans for CU Call Report purpose is still a mystery for CU Call Report preparers. Perhaps the word mystery goes a bit too far. Nevertheless, loan classification for CU Call Report purposes is very challenging indeed. A Schedule with only twelve possible lines, surprisingly, causes much trouble and frustration. Once the overall approach to classification “clicks,” the Schedule become rather routine and less burdensome. With time and experience, the categorization mystery slowly fades away. Experienced CU Call Report personnel can confirm this fact.
This final webinar in our Credit Union Call Report accounting series focuses on the Schedule called “Loans and Leases as of ______” (page 6 of Form 5300). That page 6 requires the preparer to insert, on lines 1 to 13, the # and $ amount of all CU loans (direct and participations) by appropriate line category. The total of those lines must equal the # and $ amount on the Loans and Leases line 19 on the balance sheet, page 2. That is easier said than done. The webinar explains exactly what should be included on each of the lines 1 to 13. Emphasis is placed on the type of collateral for each type of loan. Collateral dictates where a particular loan appears on the appropriate lines 1 through 13.
The call report training explains the collateral tracking tool used by many CUs. Particular emphasis is placed on the following five collateral types:
- V = Vechicle
- R = Real Estate
- S = Stocks
- O = Other
- M = Medallion
Type M is especially useful with up to 99 sub-types.
