Call Report Seminar
November 7, 2018
Clubhouse Hotel & Suites
Sioux Falls, SD

In 2017, the Agencies approved a new 051 form for domestic banks with less than $1 billion in assets which reduced the number of pages in the call report from 85 to 60 and eliminated 40% of the existing line items. The frequency of data collection was also reduced for some of the schedules. Further burden reducing changes were implemented in June, 2018 for both FFIEC 051 and 041 filers. The changes include consolidation and/or removal of several more line items and reductions in the frequency of reporting for about a dozen line items.

Additional changes to the June, 2018 Call Report were included in the supplement instructions. The regulators issued an update to the reporting of high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) exposures as well as reciprocal deposits.

In September, 2017, the agencies issued proposed simplifications to the risk based capital rules. The proposal was approved in November, 2017 and effective in 2018 and simplifies the threshold deduction treatment for mortgage servicing assets, deferred taxes arising from temporary differences that can’t be realized through carrybacks, and investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions.

This seminar will help preparers and reviewers understand the preparation process and eliminate errors. The seminar will begin with an overview of revisions in 2018 and other recent changes, followed by a review of several new accounting standard updates.

The classification priority for coding loans on RC-C will also be covered. Loans are normally a bank’s largest asset category and the reporting rules for RCC are critical because they affect all loan schedules in the call report. Loans are reported based on borrower, purpose, or collateral, but there are specific rules that dictate when to use each of the classification factors.

The seminar will end with a discussion of commonly cited errors made in call report preparation. Schedules included in the presentation are the FFIEC 041 & 051 forms.

Annual training in Call Report Preparation is highly recommended by bank regulators, not just for preparers of the call report, but also for reviewers. A reviewer needs to understand the reporting requirements and should spend at least 3-4 hours performing a detailed check of the completed Call Report Schedules and supporting documentation. New and experienced preparers and reviewers should be trained.

Participants receive a 300+ page manual, which will include materials covered during the seminar as well as additional information on other call report schedules.


Ann Leavelle Thomas has almost 30 years of experience in bank accounting and control. As Thomas Consulting, she performs regulatory compliance audits and training and internal control audits for several banks. Additionally, she prepares and reviews Call Reports for numerous banks. Her experience in working with a broad range of independent banks is of unique value in understanding Call Report questions and in communicating with bankers in their own language.


Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Banks should train a preparer and reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, auditing, or signing the call report will find the program valuable. The seminar is designed for more experienced preparers and reviewers interested in newer reporting requirements. Annual training is highly recommended by bank regulators.


Please bring a copy of your general ledger and your latest call report. Bankers find it useful to review classifications during the class as the line items are discussed.
