Form B120 is intended to capture the information regarding geographical distribution of assets and liabilities of an Authorised Firm at the end of the reporting period.


This form is applicable to the Authorised Firms categorised under prudential categories 1 and 5.


The information reported covers claims, other exposures, and liabilities booked by the Authorised Firm at the DIFC office and its branches. The level of consolidation for this return should be the same as that for the balance sheet. The positions of the subsidiaries carrying out the Financial Services of Accepting Deposits and Providing Credit are to be consolidated into this return.

Structure of the form in EPRS

The form is split into three linked forms, namely, Part I — Claims Immediate Borrower Basis, Part II — Other and Part III — Liabilities.

In Part I — Claims Immediate Borrower Basis information regarding all the claims and other exposures are to be entered.

In the second linked form (Part II — Other) mainly the information regarding the risk transfers i.e. claims on immediate borrowers that can be reallocated to the country sector where the final risk lies, i.e., the entity of ultimate risk is to be reported by way of outward and inward risk transfers.

The third linked form (Part III — Liabilities) captures the information regarding the geographical distribution of various liabilities of an Authorised Firm.
