2

Capital other than share capital (for example, the capital of a sole trader, partnership or limited liability partnership)

Reserves (Note 1)

These are, subject to Note 1, the audited accumulated profits retained by the firm (after deduction of tax, dividends and proprietors' or partners' drawings) and other reserves created by appropriations of share premiums and similar realised appropriations. Reserves also include gifts of capital, for example, from a parent undertaking.

For the purposes of calculating capital resources, a firm must make the following adjustments to its reserves, where appropriate:

(1)

a firm must deduct any unrealised gains or, where applicable, add back in any unrealised losses on debt instruments held, or formerly held, in the available-for-sale financial assets category;

(2)

a firm must deduct any unrealised gains or, where applicable, add back in any unrealised losses on cash flow hedges of financial instruments measured at cost or amortised cost;

5

Revaluation reserves

6

Subordinated loans/debt

Subordinated loans/debts must be included in capital on the basis of the provisions in this chapter that apply to subordinated loans/debts.

Note:

    Reserves

    £30,000

    Subordinated loans/debts

    £10,000

    Intangible assets

    £10,000

    As subordinated loans/debts (£10,000) are less than the total of share capital + reserves - intangible assets (£40,000) the firm need not exclude any of its subordinated loans/debts pursuant to CONC 10.3.5 R. Therefore total prudential resources will be £50,000.

  2. (2)

    Share Capital

    £20,000

    Reserves

    £30,000

    Subordinated loans/debts

    £60,000

    Intangible assets

    £10,000

    As subordinated loans/debts (£60,000) exceed the total of share capital + reserves - intangible assets (£40,000) by £20,000, the firm should exclude £20,000 of its subordinated loans/debts when calculating its prudential resources. Therefore total prudential resources will be £80,000.
