Provision of data to cover the cost of living

Does the data referred to in Article 8(4) DGSD have to be provided by the credit institution after the date on which the credit institution has become unable to repay deposits? Or is it possible for a DGS to use data which has been provided by the credit institution before the credit institution has become unable to repay? If DGS are expected to use data which is provided after the aforementioned date, does the data have to be provided specifically for calculating the appropriate amount or can/must data be used which is (mainly) provided for making the repayments?

NSFR calculation - deposits

In the context of the reporting of stable funding (i.e., C 60.00 and C 61.00), we have the following two questions: (1) How should institutions report retail term deposits with a residual maturity of four months but where early withdrawal (i.e., < three months) is possible contingent upon the payment of a penalty that corresponds to the interests due for the time that elapsed between the date of deposit and the date of withdrawal? Are these deposits to be reported in the maturity bucket “within three months” or “between three and 6 months”? (2) Considering the deposits provided under (1), what would be the treatment if these deposits are provided by wholesale customers?

Validation rules v2.8.1

This question refers to the validation rule v5532_m. The prerequisites indicate that template F 04.02.2 triggers this validation rule. Specifically, the prerequisites are : F 06.01 and (F 04.02.1 or F 04.02.2 or F 04.03.1 or F 04.04.1). In the French Gaap environment, only F 04.02.2 is defined as compulsory but not the other templates F 04.XX. For this reason the rule may not be valid in general because all the other files are not produced. For reminder the formula is {F 06.01, r190, c010} = {F 04.02.1, r160, c010} - {F 04.02.1, r160, c020} + {F 04.02.2, r170, c010} - {F 04.02.2, r170, c020} + sum({F 04.03.1, r160, (c015, c030, c040)}) + sum({F 04.04.1, r120, (c015, c030, c040)}) Could it be possible to modify the appliance conditions of this Validation Rule ? Will it be corrected in a further evolution of the EBA VR ? Thanks

Validationrule v5713_s DPM2.8 FINREP F 46.00

Our question relates to EBA validationrule v5713_s which, in our view, is not always applicable. This validation rule applies to the situation where a dividend distribution is done from "Capital"; the first column. In this situation the amount of dividend should be negative in c_010, r_110 of template F46.00. However, there can also be the situation that a stock dividend is converted from Share premium to Capital. In this situation there is a negative amount reported in the second column "Share premium" and there is an equal positive amount in the column "Capital" disclosed. The total change in equity is nil, but there is a shift from Share premium to Capital. In this situation should it be possible to report a positive amount in the column "Capital". Is our understanding correct ?
