No one likes to make mistakes.

But errors on Call Reports are worse because they are public and can lead to increased scrutiny from regulators – and investors.  With so much at stake, this is the perfect time to learn about common errors and best practices to ensure consistency and accuracy.
  • Identify commonly misreported Call Report line items and ensure the accuracy of key items
  • Understand the Call Report schedules that receive the most regulatory scrutiny and get tips for avoiding mistakes
  • Recognize the relationships between schedules to ensure consistency throughout the Call Report
  • Avoid common mistakes in reporting loans, both in Schedule RC-C and for regulatory capital in Schedule RC-R
  • Establish best practices for Call Report audit and review


With regulatory reporting receiving increased scrutiny from regulators, auditors, investors, and others, it is imperative that the Call Report be accurately prepared. Regulators use Call Report data for offsite monitoring and to evaluate many aspects of the bank’s condition and operations. This session will focus on areas and individual line items within the Call Report that are commonly misreported and that could ultimately lead to greater regulatory scrutiny. The session will highlight key relationships between items and tips for ensuring the consistency and accuracy of Call Report schedules. Best practices for the audit and review process of the Call Report will also be addressed.


This informative session is designed for Call Report preparers and reviewers, including CFOs, controllers, internal auditors, accounting and operations personnel, and others responsible for ensuring the accuracy of quarterly Call Report submissions.
