The Call Report has been subject to many changes over the course of 2020 and continues to be impacted by economic, accounting and regulatory changes. Extensive changes took place over the course of the past few years and there are more on the horizon. Our recent challenges related to the economic crisis under COVID-19 have added to the reporting burden with changes impacting all financial institutions that are expected to continue into 2021.

This webinar will provide 6 hours of comprehensive training on new, proposed, and revised changes to the Call Report with detailed discussion on impacted line items in several schedules. Accounting guidance and regulatory changes will be discussed and presented in order to update those with Call Report preparation and review responsibilities. Individuals new to Call Report preparation will find this webinar valuable as well as those that are experienced in the preparation and review process. 

Participants will receive handout materials to include a PDF version of the presentation and additional documentation required to support the topics covered in the webinar. The FFIEC 041 and 051 reports will be referenced in the presentation and materials and participants are encouraged to have a copy of their Call Report handy for reference during the webinar.

Who Should Attend?

Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Banks should have a trained preparer and a trained reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, reviewing, or signing a Call Report will find this program valuable. Both new and experienced preparers and reviewers will benefit from the updates and the continued discussion on accounting and financial reporting matters. Specific areas of concern should be communicated to the sponsor in advance of the seminar so that these areas can be covered with appropriate adequacy.
