SUP 16.1.4 G RP
  1. (1)

    This chapter contains requirements to report to the FSA on a regular basis. These requirements include reports relating to a firm's financial condition, and to its compliance with other rules and requirements which apply to the firm. Where the relevant requirements are set out in another section of the Handbook, this chapter contains cross references. An example of this is financial reporting for insurers and friendly societies.

  2. (2)

    Where such requirements already apply to a firm under legislation other than the Act, they are not referred to in this chapter. An example of this is reporting to the FSA by building societies under those parts of the Building Societies Act 1986 which have not been repealed.

  3. (3)

    Requirements for individual firms reflect:

    1. (a)

      the category of firm;

    2. (b)

      the nature of business carried on;

    3. (c)

      whether a firm has its registered office (or if it does not have a registered office, its head office) in the United Kingdom; and

    4. (d)

      whether a firm is an incoming EEA firm or incoming Treaty firm.

SUP 16.1.5 G

The reporting of complaints is covered in DISP 1.5.4 RDISP 1.5.8 G.

SUP 16.1.6 G

Reporting on pension transfers and pension opt-outs arranged by the firm against its advice is covered in COB 5.3.26 R.

SUP 16.2 Purpose

SUP 16.2.1 G RP
  1. (1)

    In order to discharge its functions under the Act, the FSA needs timely and accurate information about firms. The provision of this information on a regular basis enables the FSA to build up over time a picture of firms' circumstances and behaviour.

  2. (2)

    Principle 11 requires a firm to deal with its regulators in an open and cooperative way, and to tell the FSA appropriately anythingof which the FSA would reasonably expect notice. The reporting requirements are part of the FSA's approach to amplifying Principle 11 by setting out in more detail the information that the FSA requires. They supplement the provisions of SUP 2 (Information gathering by the FSAon its own initiative) and SUP 15 (Notifications to the FSA). The reports required under these rules help the FSA to monitor firms' compliance with Principles governing relationships between firms and their customers, with Principle 4, which requires firms to maintain adequate financial resources, and with other requirements and standards under the regulatory system.

SUP 16.3 General provisions on reporting

Application

SUP 16.3.1 G RP

The effect of SUP 16.1.1 R is that this section applies to every firm except:

  1. (1)

    an ICVC;

  2. (2)

    an incoming EEA firm or incoming Treaty firm, which is not:

    1. (a)

      a firm of a type listed in SUP 16.1.3 R as a firm to which section SUP 16.6 or SUP 16.7 applies;

    2. (b)

      an insurer with permission to effect or carry out life policies;

  3. (3)

    a UCITS qualifier.

Structure of the chapter

SUP 16.3.2 G RP

This chapter has been split into eight5sections, covering:

5 3
  1. (1)

    annual controllers reports (SUP 16.4);

  2. (2)

    annual close links reports (SUP 16.5);

  3. (3)

    compliance reports (SUP 16.6);

  4. (4)

    financial reports (SUP 16.7);

  5. (5)

    persistency reports (SUP 16.8);

    53
  6. (6)

    annual appointed representatives reports (SUP 16.9);5

    53
  7. (7)

    Verification of standing data (SUP 16.10); and58

  8. (8)

    product sales data reporting (SUP 16.11).5

SUP 16.3.3 G RP

The annual controllers, annual close links, persistency and annual appointed representatives reports sections are the same for all categories of firm to which they apply.3

SUP 16.3.4 G RP

The compliance and financial reports sections are bothset out by category of firm, with detailed requirements set out in tables giving:

  1. (1)

    a brief description of each report;

  2. (2)

    the frequency with which the report is required; and

  3. (3)

    the due date for submission of the report.

SUP 16.3.5 G RP

Further requirements about the reports, such as form and content, are set out in the sections for each category of firm, where this is appropriate. In many cases, however, it is more appropriate to provide this information by means of a separate annex; in these cases the relevant section refers to the annex.

How to submit reports

SUP 16.3.6 R RP

A periodic report required to be submitted under this chapter, or under any other rule, must be submitted in writing in accordance with SUP 16.3.7 R to SUP 16.3.10 G, unless:

  2. (2)

    if submitted in paper form, be submitted with the cover sheet contained in SUP 16 Annex 13 fully completed13.21

Complete reporting

SUP 16.3.11 R RP

A firm must submit reports required under this chapter to the FSA containing all the information required.

SUP 16.3.12 G RP

SUP 15.6 refers to and contains requirements regarding the steps that firms must take to ensure that information provided to the FSA is accurate and complete. Those requirements apply to reports required to be submitted under this chapter.

Timely reporting

SUP 16.3.13 R RP
  1. (1)

    A firm must submit a report required by this chapter in the frequency, and so as to be received by the FSA no later than the due date, specified for that report.

  2. (2)

    If the due date for submission of a report required by this chapter falls on a day which is not a business day, the report must be submitted so as to be received by the FSA no later than the first business day after the due date.

  3. (3)

    If the due date for submission of a report required by this chapter is a set period of time after the quarter end, the quarter ends will be the following dates, unless another rule or the reporting form states otherwise:

    1. (a)

      the firm's accounting reference date;

    2. (b)

      3 months after the firm's accounting reference date;

    3. (c)

      6 months after the firm's accounting reference date; and

    4. (d)

      9 months after the firm's accounting reference date.

  4. (4)

    If the due date for submission of a report required by this chapter is a set period of time after the end of a half-year, a quarter, or a month, the dates will be determined by (a) or (b) below except where otherwise indicated:5

    1. (a)

      the firm's accounting reference date;5

    2. (b)

      monthly, 3 monthly or 6 months after the firm's accounting reference date, as the case may be.5

Failure to submit reports

SUP 16.3.14 R RP
15
  1. (1)

    If a firm does not submit a complete report by the date on which it is due in accordance with the rules in, or referred to in,12 this chapter or the provisions of relevant legislation12 and any prescribed submission procedures, the firm must pay an administrative fee of £250.15

  2. (2)

    The administrative fee in (1) does not apply in respect of quarterly reports required to be submitted by credit unions whose liability to pay a periodic fee under FEES 4.2.1 R in respect of the A.1 activity group in FEES 4 Annex 1R, for the financial year prior to the due date for submission of the report, was limited to the payment of the minimum fee11.15

SUP 16.3.14A G RP

9Failure to submit a report in accordance with the rules in, or referred to in,12 this chapter or the provisions of relevant legislation12 may also lead to the imposition of a financial penalty and other disciplinary sanctions (seeDEPP 6.6.1 G-DEPP 6.6.5 G16). A firm may be subject to reporting requirements under relevant legislation other than the Act, not referred to in this chapter. An example of this is reporting to the FSA by building societies under those parts of the Building Societies Act 1986 which have not been repealed (see SUP 16.1.4 G).12 If it appears to the FSA that, in the exceptional circumstances of a particular case, the payment of any fee would be inequitable, the FSA may reduce or remit all or part of the fee in question which would otherwise be payable (see 10FEES 2.3).10

16
SUP 16.3.15 G RP

The FSA may from time to time send reminders to firms when reports are overdue. Firms should not, however, assume that the FSA has received a report merely because they have not received a reminder.1

SUP 16.3.16 G RP

The firm is responsible for ensuring delivery of the required report at the FSA's offices by the due date. If a report is received by the FSA after the due date and the firm believes its delivery arrangements were adequate, it may be required to provide proof of those arrangements. Examples of such proof would be:

  1. (1)

    "proof of posting" receipts from a UK post office or overseas equivalent which demonstrates that the report was posted early enough to allow delivery by the due date in accordance with the delivery service standards prescribed by the relevant postal authority; or

  2. (2)

    recorded postal delivery receipts showing delivery on the required day; or

  3. (3)

    records of a courier service provider showing delivery on the required day.

Change of accounting reference date

SUP 16.3.17 R RP
  1. (1)

    A firm must notify the FSA if it changes its accounting reference date.

  2. (2)

    When a firm extends its accounting period, it must make the notification in (1) before the previous accounting reference date.

  3. (3)

    When a firm shortens its accounting period, it must make the notification in (1) before the new accounting reference date.4

SUP 16.3.18 G RP

SUP 16.2.1 G emphasises the importance to the FSA of timely and accurate information. The extension of a firm's accounting period to more than 15 months may hinder the timely provision of relevant and important information to the FSA. This is because many due dates for reporting to the FSA are linked to firms'accounting reference dates. Indeed, for some categories of firm, the only reports required by the FSA have due dates for submission which are linked to the firm's accounting reference date.If the extension of a firm's accounting period appears likely to impair the effectiveness of the FSA's supervisory work, the FSA may take action to ensure that it continues to receive the information it requires on a timely basis. This may include the use of any of the tools of supervision set out in SUP 1.4.5 G.

SUP 16.3.19 G RP

If more than one firm in a group intends to change its accounting reference date at the same time, a single notification may be given to the FSA, as described in SUP 15.7.8 G.

Underwriting agents: submission to the Society of Lloyd's

SUP 16.3.20 R
  1. (1)

    Paragraph (2) applies in relation to reports required under this chapter within the scope of any arrangements made by the FSA with the Society of Lloyd's under paragraph 6(2) of Schedule 1 to the Act.

  2. (2)

    An underwriting agent must submit the reports in (1) to the Society of Lloyd's rather than to the FSA.

SUP 16.3.21 G

See SUP 15.7.13 G and SUP 15.7.14 G for guidance on arrangements in SUP 16.3.20 R.

Service of Notices Regulations

SUP 16.3.22 G RP

The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Service of Notices) Regulations 2001 (SI 2001/1420) contain provisions relating to the service of documents on the FSA. They do not apply to reports required under SUP 16, because of the specific rules in this section.

Confidentiality and sharing of information

SUP 16.3.23 G RP

When the FSA receives a report which contains confidential information and whose submission is required under this chapter, it is obliged under Part XXIIIof the Act (Public Record, Disclosure of Information and Co-operation) to treat that information as confidential. (See SUP 2.2.4 G)

SUP 16.3.24 G RP

SUP 2.3.12 G states that the FSA may pass to other regulators information which it has in its possession. Such information includes information contained in reports submitted under this chapter. The FSA's disclosure of information to other regulators is subject to SUP 2.2.4 G (Confidentiality of information).

Reports from groups

SUP 16.3.25 G RP

If this chapter requires the submission of a report or data item13 covering a group, a single report or data item13 may be submitted, and so satisfy the requirements of all firms in the group. Such a report or data item13 should contain the information required from all of them, meet all relevant due dates and indicate all the firms on whose behalf it is submitted; if necessary a separate covering sheet should list the firms on whose behalf a report or data item13 is submitted. Nevertheless, the requirement to provide a report or data item13, and the responsibility for the report or data item13, remains6 with each firm in the group. However, reporting requirements that apply to a firm, by reason of the firm being a member of a financial conglomerate, are imposed on only one member of the financial conglomerate (see, for example, SUP 16.7.82 R).6

SUP 16.3.26 G RP

Examples of reports covering a group are:

  1. (1)

    the compliance reports required from banks under SUP 16.6.4 R;

  2. (2)

    annual controllers reports required under SUP 16.5.4 R;

  3. (3)

    annual close links reports required under SUP 16.5.4 R

  4. (4)

    consolidated financial reports required from banks under SUP 16.7.7 R;

  5. (5)

    consolidated reporting statements required from securities and futures firms under SUP 16.7.24 R.

SUP 16.4 Annual controllers report

Application

SUP 16.4.1 G RP

This section applies to every firm except those firms excluded from its operation by SUP 16.1.1 R and SUP 16.1.3 R. 632

SUP 16.4.2 G RP

This section may be of relevance to a directive friendly society:

  1. (1)

    if it has 10 members or less;

  2. (2)

    if it has a delegate voting system and has 10 delegates or less; or

  3. (3)

    if it has 20 members or less and effects or carries out group insurance contracts where one person may exercise one vote on behalf of the members of a group and one vote in their private capacity; or

where a member or delegate, whether alone or with any associate, is entitled to exercise, or control the exercise of, 10% or more of the total voting power.

SUP 16.4.3 G RP

Requirements for notifications of a change in control can be found in SUP 11 (Controllers and close links).

Purpose

SUP 16.4.4 G RP

A firm and its controllers are required to notify certain changes in control (See SUP 11 (Controllers and close links)). The purpose of the rules and guidance in this section is:

  1. (1)

    to ensure that, in addition to such notifications, the FSA receives regular and comprehensive information about the identities of all of the controllers of a firm, which is relevant to a firm's continuing to satisfy the threshold conditions (see COND 2.3) and to the protection of consumers;

  2. (2)

    to implement certain requirements relating to annual reporting of controllers which must be imposed on firms under the Investment Services Directive, the Banking Consolidation Directive, the Third Life Directive and the Third Non-Life Directive; and

  3. (3)

    to support the FSA's functions under Part XIIof the Act (Control over authorised persons) (see SUP 11 (Controllers and close links)).

Reporting requirement

SUP 16.4.5 R RP
  1. (1)

    A firm must submit a report to the FSA annually, containing the information in (3) or (4) (as applicable).

  2. (2)

    A firm must submit the report in (1) to the FSA within four months of the firm'saccounting reference date.

  3. (3)

    If a firm is not aware:

    1. (a)

      that it has any controllers; or

    2. (b)

      of any changes in the identity of its controllers since the submission of its previous report under (1); or

    3. (c)

      of any changes in the percentage of shares or voting power in the firm held by any controllers (alone or with any associate) since the submission of its previous report;

    then the report in (1) must confirm this.

  4. (4)

    Unless (3) applies, the report in (1) must contain a list of all the controllers as at the firm'saccounting reference date of which it is aware and, for each such controller, state:

    1. (a)

      its name;

    2. (b)

      the percentage of voting power in the firm, or in the firm'sparent undertaking, which it is entitled to exercise or control the exercise of, whether alone or with any associate;

    3. (c)

      the percentage of shares in the firm, or in the firm'sparent undertaking, which it holds, whether alone or with any associate;

    4. (d)

      if the controller is a body corporate, its country of incorporation, address and registered number; and

    5. (e)

      if the controller is an individual, his date and place of birth.

  5. (4A)

    5A firm that is a regulated entity must include in its report to the FSA under (1) whether any consolidation group of which it is a member is a third-country banking and investment group.

  6. (4B)

    5A firm does not have to give notice to the FSA under (4A) if it, or another member of the third-country banking and investment group, has already given notice to the FSA of the relevant fact.

  7. (5)

    In this section, 'associate' and 'shares' have the meanings given in the definition of controller.

SUP 16.4.6 G

The information required by SUP 16.4.5 R(4) may be provided in the form of a group organisation chart.

SUP 16.4.7 G RP

If a group includes more than one firm, a single annual controllers report may be submitted, and so satisfy the requirements of all firms in the group. Such a report should contain the information required from all of them, meet all relevant due dates, indicate all the firms on whose behalf it is submitted and give their FSA firm reference numbers. Nevertheless, the requirement to provide a report, and the responsibility for the report, remain with each firm in the group.1

SUP 16.4.8 G

A firm may submit a single report satisfying the requirements of its annual controllers report (SUP 16.4.5 R) and its annual close links report (SUP 16.5.4 R). Such a report should contain the information required on both controllers and close links.

SUP 16.4.9 G RP

Firms are reminded of the requirement in SUP 11.4.10 R to take reasonable steps to keep themselves informed about the identity of their controllers.

Exceptions: friendly societies and building societies

SUP 16.4.10 R RP

If a firm is a friendly society or a building society, then it is required to submit a report under SUP 16.4.5 R only if it is aware that it has a controller.4

SUP 16.4.11 R RP

3In SUP 16.4.5 R and SUP 16.4.10 R, a building society may regard a person as not being a controller if that person is exempt from the obligation to notify a change in control under The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Controllers) (Exemption) (No.2) Order 2001 (SI 2001/3338) (see SUP 11.3.2A G (2)).

Exception: insurers

SUP 16.4.12 R RP

4An insurer need not submit a report under SUP 16.4.5 R to the extent that the information has already been provided to the FSA under IPRU(INS) 9.30R (Additional information on controllers).

SUP 16.5 Annual Close Links Reports

Application

SUP 16.5.1 G RP

This section applies to every firm except those firms excluded from its operation by SUP 16.1.1 R and SUP 16.1.3 R. 432

Purpose

SUP 16.5.2 G RP

A firm is required to notify the FSA of changes to its close links (see SUP 11.9). Threshold condition 3 (Close links) provides that, if a firm has close links with another person, the FSA must be satisfied that:

  1. (1)

    those close links are not likely to prevent the FSA's effective supervision of the firm; and

  2. (2)

    where it appears to the FSA that the person is subject to the laws, regulations or administrative provisions of a territory which is not an EEA State, neither the foreign provisions, nor any deficiency in their enforcement, would prevent the FSA's effective supervision of the firm.

SUP 16.5.3 G RP

The purposes of the rules and guidance in this section are:

  1. (1)

    to ensure that, in addition to such notifications, the FSA receives regular and comprehensive information about the identities of all persons with whom a firm has close links, which is relevant to a firm's continuing to satisfy the threshold condition 3 (Close links) (see SUP 2.3) and to the protection of consumers; and

  2. (2)

    to implement certain requirements relating to the provision of information on close links which must be imposed on firms under the 'Post-BCCI Directive'.

Report

SUP 16.5.4 R RP
  1. (1)

    A firm must submit a report to the FSA annually the information in (3) or (4) (as applicable).

  2. (2)

    A firm must submit the report in (1) to the FSA within four months of the firm'saccounting reference date.

  3. (3)

    If a firm is not aware:

    1. (a)

      that it has any close links; or

    2. (b)

      of any material changes to the details in (4) (a) to (c) in respect of its close links since the submission of its previous report under (1);

    then the report in (1) must confirm this.

  4. (4)

    Unless (3) applies, the report in (1) must contain a list of all persons with whom the firm has close links as at the firm'saccounting reference date of which it is aware, and for each such person state:

    1. (a)

      its name;

    2. (b)

      the nature of the close links;

    3. (c)

      if the close link is with a body corporate, its country of incorporation, address and registered number; and

    4. (d)

      if the close link is with an individual, his date and place of birth.

SUP 16.5.5 G

The information required by SUP 16.5.4R(4) may be provided in the form of a group organisation chart.

SUP 16.5.6 G RP

If a group includes more than one firm, a single annual close links report may be submitted and so satisfy the requirements of all firms in the group. Such a report should contain the information required from all of them, meet all relevant due dates, indicate all the firms on whose behalf it is submitted and give their FSA firm reference numbers. Nevertheless, the requirement to provide a report, and the responsibility for the report, remain with each firm in the group.1

SUP 16.5.7 G

A firm may submit a single report satisfying the requirements of its annual controllers report (SUP 16.4.5 R) and its annual close links report (SUP 16.5.4 R). Such a report should contain the information required on both controllers and close links.

SUP 16.5.8 R RP

If a firm is an unincorporated friendly society, then it is only required to submit a report under SUP 16.5.4 R if it is aware that it has close links.

SUP 16.6 Compliance reports

Purpose

SUP 16.6.3 G

The FSA performs part of its supervision work by reviewing and analysing information about firms' records of compliance with the requirements and standards under the regulatory system. The type of report the FSA requires will vary, depending on the type of business a firm undertakes. The requirements in SUP 16.6 represent an interim approach to compliance reporting, based mainly on the reporting requirements, which previous regulators applied to firms. This information helps the FSA to determine whether a firm is complying with the requirements applicable to its business, and what procedures it is operating to ensure its compliance.

Banks

    The report from a trustee of an AUT to the FSA must state, in relation to the manager of each AUT for which it is a trustee, the number of times during the quarter in which facts came to the firm's knowledge from which it appeared, or might have appeared, that the manager had failed (materially or otherwise) to:

    1. (a)

      give correct instructions to the trustee to create or cancel units in the AUT when the manager should have done so, and the error:

      1. (i)

        resulted in the creation of too few units or in the cancellation of too many units; and

      2. (ii)

        was not corrected in accordance with the FSA'sguidance as set out in COLL 6.2.12 or CIS App as the case may be;

    2. (b)

      price units in the AUT in accordance with COLL 6.2 or CIS 4 as the case may be for single-priced AUTs andCIS 15 for dual-priced AUTs, where the pricing error was:

      1. (i)

        greater than 0.5% of the price of a unit; or

      2. (ii)

        less than 0.5% of the price of a unit, and the trustee did not consider the manager's controls to be adequate;

    unless the failure was an isolated incident.

  2. (2)

    The report from a depositary of an ICVC to the FSA must state, in relation to the authorised corporate director of each ICVC for which the firm is a depositary, the number of times during the quarter in which facts came to the firm's knowledge from which it appeared or might have appeared that the authorised corporate director had failed (materially or otherwise) to:

    1. (a)

      arrange for the issue or cancellation of shares in the ICVC when the authorised corporate director should have done so, and the error:

      1. (i)

        resulted in the creation of too few shares or in the cancellation of too many shares; and

      2. (ii)

        was not corrected in accordance with the FSA'sguidance as set out in COLL 6.2.12 or CIS App as the case may be;

    2. (b)

      price shares in the ICVC in accordance with the provisions of COLL 6.3 or CIS 4 for ICVCs as the case may be, where the pricing error was:

    An OPS firm must notify the FSA of any change in the date of commencement of the scheme year of an OPS or OPS collective investment scheme, in respect of which the firm is acting, not less than 15 business days before the date on which such a change is to become effective.2

SUP 16.6.9 G

SUP 16 Annex 12 provides guidance on the completion of the report from a trustee of an AUT on a manager's failures as set out in SUP 16.6.8 R(1), and the report from a depositary of an ICVC on failures by the authorised corporate director as set out in SUP 16.6.8 R(2). This guidance includes suggested formats for the submission of the reports.

SUP 16.7 Financial reports

Application

SUP 16.7.1 G

The effect of SUP 16.1.1 R is that this section applies to every firm within a category listed in the left hand column of SUP 16.7.5 G. Firms should also have regard to reporting requirements that arise from SUP 16.12, including Transitional Provisions, for reporting dates after 1 January 2008.28

SUP 16.7.2 G
  1. (1)

    Financial reporting17 requirements for insurers, excluding friendly societies are set out in IPRU(INS). For their other reporting requirements, see SUP 16.7.73 R - SUP 16.7.75 R.17

    17
  2. (2)

    Financial reporting requirements for friendly societies are set out in IPRU(FSOC). 1311 For their other reporting requirements, see SUP 16.7.73 R- SUP 16.7.75 R. 17

Purpose

SUP 16.7.3 G

Principle 4 requires firms to maintain adequate financial resources, and the Interim Prudential sourcebooks (or, in the case of firms with permission to carry on insurance mediation activity, home finance mediation activity,27 or both, MIPRU) 11set out the FSA's detailed capital adequacy requirements. By submitting regular financial reports, firms enable the FSA to monitor their compliance with Principle 4 and with the detailed requirements of the Interim Prudential sourcebooks orMIPRU23, as the case may be11. These reports also help the FSA to analyse firms' financial condition and performance and to understand their business. By means of further collation and review of the data which these reports provide, the FSA also uses the reports to identify developments across the financial services industry and its constituent sectors.106

27 23 23
SUP 16.7.4 G

The requirements in this section differ according to firm categories, as different financial information is required to reflect different types of business. The requirements in SUP 16.7 represent an interim approach to financial reporting, based mainly on the reporting requirements which previous regulators applied to firms. Standard formats are used for reporting by each category of firm, to assist comparability between firms of the same category. Timely submission is important to ensure the FSA has up-to-date information.
