Regulatory reporting and disclosure - banking sector

Firms in the banking sector (banks, building societies, investment firms and credit unions) need to provide regulatory returns to the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). This section explains the returns and how firms should report them.

Latest updates

15 December 2021: The PRA has published a statement with guidance on how recent changes to banking regulatory reporting requirements are being implemented in the CRR reporting modules.

Update 8 November 2020: Following PS25/21 - Responses to CP13/21 ‘Occasional Consultation Paper’, there are a number of updates to regulatory reporting templates and related guidance material. Please see the PS for further details.

1 November 2021: We published version 3.5.0 of the Bank of England Banking taxonomy to support the collection of leverage ratio reporting. Please see the Banks, building societies and investment firms page for more information.

Working with the Financial Conduct Authority

We work with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to make sure the regulatory reporting processes for dual-regulated firms are efficient. We want to ensure that firms are only asked to submit data sets once and, to help achieve this, we will share data where it is appropriate to do so. We will also share data on firms that are not dual-regulated where necessary, to ensure that we each have a complete view of the market.

A memorandum of understanding between the FCA and the Bank of England (exercising its prudential regulation functions) sets out how we will work together.

Much regulatory data for PRA firms continues to be collected by the FCA. This includes reporting via the FCA’s RegData system, the submission of firms’ controllers and close links reports and the reporting of changes to firms’ standing data.

Statistical reporting obligations have not changed.
