The Call Report is constantly changing, producing confusion and many questions. Extensive changes took place over the course of the past few years and there are more on the horizon. This seminar will provide updates and training for experienced preparers and reviewers and will include complete coverage of new and complex issues impacting the Call Report preparation. New, proposed, and revised changes will be presented in summary form at the beginning of the seminar followed by a more detailed discussion over the course of the seminar.

Participants will receive a working-copy manual that will be referred to throughout the seminar. Ms. Dopjera will be available to answer future Call Report questions by email. All questions should be routed to questions@3princ.com. Annual training such as this is highly recommended by regulators. Participants may want to bring their Bank’s most recent Call Report for resolution of questions during the session. The FFIEC 041 & 051 forms will be used in the presentation and materials.

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.

Who Should Attend?

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 new reporting requirements.

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 require ongoing training in order to stay current on matters impacting financial reporting.
