Form B170 — Acceptance of Deposits is designed to capture the details of the deposit taking activity of the Authorised Firms carried out by way of business, on both dimensions of outstanding amount at the end of the reporting period and fresh deposit inflows during the reporting period.


This form is applicable to Authorised Firms in the prudential category 1, which are licensed to carry out the financial service of Accepting Deposits. These include Authorised Firms operating as branches in the DIFC.


The form is intended to capture information pertaining to the outstanding amount of deposits owed by and reported on the Authorised Firm's balance sheet and the amount of deposits raised by the firm during the reporting period. Specifically the form captures the detailed break-up of deposits across:

(a) different types of depositors;
(b) type of deposits;
(c) geographic diversification of the depositor;
(d) maturity of the deposits; and
(e) Currency denomination of deposits.

The form also seeks to collect the data composition of deposits as described above, except for the distribution across currencies, in terms of USD deposits and deposits raised in other currencies separately. Authorised firms are required to report all data on deposits in USD terms, including the data on deposits raised in other currencies.

Authorised Firms are required to report all deposits which meet the definition provided in appendix 1 of the GEN module of the DFSA Rulebook. Authorised Firms involved in managing PSIA accounts for its customers need not report the amounts involved in such PSIA accounts in this form.

Structure of the form in EPRS
