Who Should Attend

Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Annual training is highly recommended by bank regulators. Banks should train a preparer and reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, auditing, or signing a Call Report will find the program valuable. Experienced preparers and reviewers will benefit from the updates and the continued discussion on accounting and financial reporting matters.  This seminar series will provide basic training for new preparers, though some basic accounting knowledge is helpful, and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. 

Program Topics

Discussion will include general preparation instructions, background on regulatory matters that impact the Call Report, regulatory rules to include the CARES Act and regulatory interim and final rules, and general information about reporting requirements under U.S. GAAP.
