Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies, Parent Company Only Financial Statements for Large Holding Companies, Parent Company Only Financial Statements for Small Holding Companies, Financial Statement for Employee Stock Ownership Plan Holding Companies, and the Supplemental to the Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies. Agency form number: FR Y–9C, FR Y– 9LP, FR Y–9SP, FR Y–9ES, and FR Y– 9CS. OMB control number: 7100–0128. Frequency: Quarterly and semiannually. Reporters: Bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs), securities holding companies (SHCs), and U.S. Intermediate Holding Companies (IHCs) (collectively, holding companies (HCs)).

Number of respondents: FR Y–9C (non advanced approaches holding companies): 629; FR Y–9C (advanced approached holding companies): 18; FR Y–9LP: 778; FR Y–9SP: 3,964 FR Y–9ES: 83; FR Y–9CS: 236. General description of report: Pursuant to the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 (BHC Act), as amended, and the Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA), the Federal Reserve requires HCs to provide standardized financial statements to fulfill the Federal Reserve’s statutory obligation to supervise these organizations. HCs file the FRY–9C and FR Y–9LP quarterly, and the FR Y–9SP semiannually, the FR Y–9ES annually, and the FR Y–9CS on a schedule that is determined when this supplement is used. Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to implement a number of revisions to the FR Y–9C reporting requirements most of which are consistent with changes to the Call Report (which were effective March 31, 2017).1 Additionally, the Federal Reserve proposes to eliminate the concept of extraordinary items on various reports, add one new item to the FR Y–9SP report, and revise the instructions to clarify the reporting of certain tax benefits on various reports. These changes would be effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date. The proposed changes include: • Deleting of existing data items from Schedule HI–B, Part I Charge-Offs and Recoveries on Loans and Leases and Changes in Allowance for Loans and Lease Losses, of the FR Y–9C report that pertain to charge-offs and recoveries on loans to U.S. banks and foreign banks. • Deleting of existing data items from Schedule HC–M, Memoranda, and Schedule HC–N, Past Due and Nonaccrual Loans, and Leases and Other Assets of the FR Y–9C that pertain to certain loans covered by loss-sharing agreements with the FDIC. 1 The reporting changes to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 are effective March 31, 2017. Final comment period ended 2/7/2017. See 82 FR 2444 (January 9, 2017). Certain data items deleted on the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 do not correspond to any FR Y–9C data items. Also, certain data items were deleted from the FFIEC 041 report because the data is predominantly reported by banks with foreign offices (FFIEC 031), but remains on the FR Y–9C since no distinction is made for reporting of HCs with foreign offices versus those without foreign offices. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32813 • Increasing one reporting threshold and adding one new reporting threshold on the FR Y–9C for certain data items on Schedule HI, Consolidated Income Statement. • Eliminating extraordinary items on the FR Y–9LP, FR Y–7N and FR 2886b. • Revising data items for the reclassification of certain tax benefits on the FR Y–9C, FR Y–9LP, FR Y–7N, and FR 2886b. • Adding one new data item to Schedule SI of the FR Y–9SP to collect information pertaining to discontinued operations. • Revising one control total and adding two control totals on Schedule HC–C and HC–N of the FR Y–9C report. • Revising captions and instructions to replace ‘‘Loans net of unearned income’’ with ‘‘Loans held for investment’’ across all applicable regulatory reports. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the FR Y– 9 family of reports is authorized by section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)), section 10 of Home Owners’ Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)), 12 U.S.C. 1850a(c)(1), section 165 of the DoddFrank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365), and section 252.153(b)(2) of Regulation YY (12 CFR 252.153(b)(2)). The obligation of covered institutions to report this information is mandatory. In general, the Board does not consider the financial data in these reports to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)). The applicability of these exemptions would need to be reviewed on a case by case basis. 2. Report title: The Financial Statements of U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries Held by Foreign Banking Organizations, Abbreviated Financial Statements of U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries Held by Foreign Banking Organizations, and the Capital and Asset Report of Foreign Banking Organizations.

General description of report: The FR Y–7N and FR Y–7NS collect financial information for non-functionally regulated U.S. nonbank subsidiaries held by FBOs other than through a BHC, IHC or U.S. bank. FBOs file the FR Y– 7N quarterly or annually or the FR Y– 7NS annually predominantly based on asset size thresholds. The FR Y–7Q collects consolidated regulatory capital information from all FBOs either quarterly or annually. The FR Y–7Q is filed quarterly by FBOs that have effectively elected to become or be treated as a U.S. financial holding company (FHC) and by FBOs that have total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more, regardless of FHC status. All other FBOs file the FR Y–7Q annually. Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the report form and instructions for the FR Y–7N to eliminate the concept of extraordinary items to be consistent with Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015–01, reclassify and clarify the reporting for certain tax benefits, and replace report form captions and instructions referencing ‘‘Loans net of unearned income’’ with ‘‘Loans held for investment,’’ effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date.

Section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365) directs the Board to establish enhanced prudential standards for certain companies, including certain FBOs. The obligation of covered institutions to report this information is mandatory. In general, the Board does not consider the financial data in these reports to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)).

Y-9LP quarterly, and the FR Y-9SP semiannually, the FR Y-9ES annually, 
and the FR Y-9CS on a schedule that is determined when this supplement 
is used.
    Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to implement a 
number of revisions to the FR Y-9C reporting requirements most of which 
are consistent with changes to the Call Report (which were effective 
March 31, 2017).\1\ Additionally, the Federal Reserve proposes to 
eliminate the concept of extraordinary items on various reports, add 
one new item to the FR Y-9SP report, and revise the instructions to 
clarify the reporting of certain tax benefits on various reports. These 
changes would be effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 
2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 
report date. The proposed changes include:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The reporting changes to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 are 
effective March 31, 2017. Final comment period ended 2/7/2017. See 
82 FR 2444 (January 9, 2017). Certain data items deleted on the 
FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 do not correspond to any FR Y-9C data items. 
Also, certain data items were deleted from the FFIEC 041 report 
because the data is predominantly reported by banks with foreign 
offices (FFIEC 031), but remains on the FR Y-9C since no distinction 
is made for reporting of HCs with foreign offices versus those 
without foreign offices.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Deleting of existing data items from Schedule HI-B, Part I 
Charge-Offs and Recoveries on Loans and Leases and Changes in Allowance 
for Loans and Lease Losses, of the FR Y-9C report that pertain to 
charge-offs and recoveries on loans to U.S. banks and foreign banks.
     Deleting of existing data items from Schedule HC-M, 
Memoranda, and Schedule HC-N, Past Due and Nonaccrual Loans, and Leases 
and Other Assets of the FR Y-9C that pertain to certain loans covered 
by loss-sharing agreements with the FDIC.
     Increasing one reporting threshold and adding one new 
reporting threshold on the FR Y-9C for certain data items on Schedule 
HI, Consolidated Income Statement.
     Eliminating extraordinary items on the FR Y-9LP, FR Y-7N 
and FR 2886b.
     Revising data items for the reclassification of certain 
tax benefits on the FR Y-9C, FR Y-9LP, FR Y-7N, and FR 2886b.
     Adding one new data item to Schedule SI of the FR Y-9SP to 
collect information pertaining to discontinued operations.
     Revising one control total and adding two control totals 
on Schedule HC-C and HC-N of the FR Y-9C report.
     Revising captions and instructions to replace ``Loans net 
of unearned income'' with ``Loans held for investment'' across all 
applicable regulatory reports.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the FR Y-9 family of reports is authorized by 
section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)), 
section 10 of Home Owners' Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)), 12 U.S.C. 
1850a(c)(1), section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365), and 
section 252.153(b)(2) of Regulation YY (12 CFR 252.153(b)(2)). The 
obligation of covered institutions to report this information is 
mandatory. In general, the Board does not consider the financial data 
in these reports to be confidential. However, a respondent may request 
confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) 
of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and 
(b)(8)). The applicability of these exemptions would need to be 
reviewed on a case by case basis.

FBOs file the FR Y-7N quarterly or annually or the FR Y-7NS annually 
predominantly based on asset size thresholds. The FR Y-7Q collects 
consolidated regulatory capital information from all FBOs either 
quarterly or annually. The FR Y-7Q is filed quarterly by FBOs that have 
effectively elected to become or be treated as a U.S. financial holding 
company (FHC) and by FBOs that have total consolidated assets of $50 
billion or more, regardless of FHC status. All other FBOs file the FR 
Y-7Q annually.

report form and instructions for the FR Y-7N to eliminate the concept 
of extraordinary items to be consistent with Accounting Standards 
Update (ASU) 2015-01, reclassify and clarify the reporting for certain 
tax benefits, and replace report form captions and instructions 
referencing ``Loans net of unearned income'' with ``Loans held for

3106(c) and 3108). Section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365) 
directs the Board to establish enhanced prudential standards for 
certain companies, including certain FBOs. The obligation of covered 
institutions to report this information is mandatory. In general, the 
Board does not consider the financial data in these reports to be 
confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment 
pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of 
Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)). The 
applicability of these exemptions would need to be reviewed on a case
