PRU-EPRS 1.6 Instructional Guidelines

Past version: effective from 16/12/2007 - 13/04/2013

The form enables effectively three sets of returns on balance sheet information for Authorised Firms using this form. Whilst AAOIFI permits unrestricted PSIA assets to be commingled with self financed assets for balance sheet reporting purposes, the need to maintain separate records for each asset class is paramount. Restricted PSIA assets and liabilities cannot be commingled with the former and should be reported off balance sheet. In the event of any uncertainty, Authorised Firms are required to consult with DFSA to obtain the necessary clarity.

Off Balance sheet items
B100_1010 Direct credit substitutes These relate to the financial requirements of Counterparty where the risk of loss to the Authorised Firm on the transaction is equivalent to that arising from a direct claim on the Counterparty. The indicative examples of items to be Included here are
•  Guarantees of a financial nature to stand behind the current obligations of customers (e.g. loan guarantees);
•  Guarantees of leasing operations;
•  Letters of Credit and Stand-by Letters of Credit to the extent that they do not qualify for inclusion in item B100_1030 "Trade related contingents" below;
•  Guarantees of a capital nature such as undertakings given to a non-bank financial company which are considered as capital by the appropriate regulatory body. Guarantees given to a company not connected to the reporting institution should be risk weighted at 100% and those for connected companies should be deducted from the reporting institution's capital base.
•  Acceptances granted and risk participation in bankers' acceptances. Where the Authorised Firm's own acceptances have been discounted by that institution the nominal value of the bills held should be deducted from the nominal amount of the bills issued under the facility and a corresponding on-balance sheet entry made.
B100_1020 Transaction related contingents These exposures relate to the on-going trading activities of a Counterparty where the risk of loss to the Authorised Firm depends on the likelihood of a future event which is independent of the creditworthiness of the Counterparty. They are essentially guarantees that support particular non financial obligations rather than a customer's financial obligations. Include here:
•  Advance payment guarantees
•  Performance bonds including bid or tender bonds, warranties and indemnities (indemnities given for lost share certificates or bills of lading and guarantees of the validity of papers rather than of payment under certain conditions should be reported here);
Stand-by Letters of Credit relating to a particular contract or to non-financial transactions (including arrangements backing, inter alia, subcontractors' and supplier's performance, labour and materials, contracts and construction tenders/bids).
B100_1030 Trade related contingents Report short term self-liquidating trade related items such as documentary letters of credit issued by the Authorised Firm that are collateralised by the underlying shipment i.e. the credit provides for the Authorised Firm to retain title to the underlying shipment. L/C's issued without provision for the Authorised Firm to retain title to the underlying shipment should be reported under direct credit substitutes above.
B100_1040 Sale and Repurchase Agreements In this item, report only the sale and repurchase agreements where the asset sold is not reported on the balance sheet. Where the asset is off-balance sheet, the appropriate Counterparty weighting is determined by the issuer of the security and not according to the Counterparty with whom the transaction has been undertaken.
B100_1050 Forward Assets Purchases The appropriate Counterparty weighting should be determined by the asset to be purchased and not the Counterparty with whom the contract has been entered into. Include commitments for loans and other on-balance sheet items with definitive drawdown schedules. Exclude foreign currency spot deposits with value date of up to two business days after trade date.
B100_1060 Forward Deposits Placed Relates to agreements between two parties whereby one will pay and the other receive an agreed rate of interest on a deposit to be placed by one with the other at some pre-determined rate in the future. Exclude foreign currency spot deposits with value date of up to two business days after trade date.
B100_1070 Uncalled partly- paid shares and securities Only include here if there is a specific date for a call. If there is no specific date for a call, the item should be included as a long term commitment under item no. B100_1122 "Other Commitments".
B100_1080 NIF's and RUF's Note issuance and revolving underwriting facilities should include the Authorised Firm's underwriting obligations of any maturity. Where the facility has been drawn down by the borrower and the notes are held by someone other than the Authorised Firm, the underwriting obligation should continue to be reported at the nominal amount.
B100_1090 Endorsement of Bills These should be reported at the full nominal amount, less any amount for bills which the Authorised Firm currently holds but had previously endorsed.
