The NCUA uses the Call Report and Profile to collect financial and nonfinancial information from federally insured credit unions. The resulting data are integral to risk supervision at institution and industry levels, which is central to safeguarding the integrity of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. After extensive outreach, the working group developed a prototype of streamlined Call Report and Profile forms. The current Call Report has 1,523 1 account codes (the September 2017 post-MBL/Commercial loan changes). The prototype retires 1,017 account codes. Most of the account codes proposed to be retired are no longer needed, but some would be collected through another means, such as the exam process. The prototype Call Report adds 413 new account codes to accommodate necessary changes such as for ASC Topic 326, Financial Instruments Current Expected Credit Losses and for the risk-based capital rule currently scheduled to go into effect in January 2019.2 After these additions, the final number of total account codes on the prototype Call Report is 919—a net reduction of approximately 40 percent.3 The schedules have been reorganized so they are separated by programs and significantly smaller. The reorganization of the schedules would also facilitate an adaptive user interface the NCUA plans to provide for CU Online as part of the Enterprise Solutions Modernization. The prototype also includes improved instructions. The Profile underwent a 1 Of the 1,523 account codes, 1,179 account codes are for data input. The remaining accounts are calculated or prepopulated. 2 The NCUA is considering delaying the effective date of this rule, as well as modifying or eliminating the rule. This schedule would revert to the current risk-based net worth requirement collection if the risk-based capital rule is delayed or eliminated, and would otherwise be modified based on any changes to the capital rules the Board might adopt. The riskbased schedule was designed as a stand-alone schedule so it could be removed or modified without impacting any other schedules of the Call Report. 3 Of the 919 account codes, 753 account codes are for data input and the remaining account codes are calculated or prepopulated. However, the proposed new form provides for credit unions to report information based on ASC 326 (CECL) if they have chosen to adopt it early. Otherwise, credit unions would continue to report based on current account standards. CECL is an either or selection in the new form; thus the total account codes and the fillable account codes for a credit union adopting CECL is 891 and 733 respectively, and 871 and 716 respectively if they have not early adopted CECL.

All of these changes incorporate the stakeholder feedback received. Request for Comment The NCUA is seeking comments on all proposed changes to the Call Report form 5300, the Profile form 4501A, and their accompanying instructions. The proposed forms and instructions are available on the NCUA’s Call Report Modernization web page. When reviewing the comment documents, please consider the following questions. 1. Are there account codes that are proposed to be retired that are still pertinent? If so, please provide the account code(s) and the reason for maintaining it. 2. Are there additional account codes that should be retired or consolidated? If so, please provide the account code(s) and the reason for retiring it. 3. Are relocated account codes grouped logically? If not, please propose a location you feel is more logically suited. 4. Should any of the schedules be expanded to assist in analysis based on new rules or accounting changes? If so, please provide details of data the NCUA should also collect. 5. Are the instructions adequate in both content and design? If not, please cite specific sections that require improvement or correction. 6. How much lead time do credit unions need to work with vendors to make changes to their systems in order to support such changes to the Call Report? 7. Are there any other operational issues the NCUA should be aware of prior to implementing the proposed changes? 8. From your perspective, do you think this is a reduction in your reporting burden? Please explain. Information received will not be used for statistical purposes. Responses containing references to studies, research, or data not widely available to the public should include copies of referenced materials. A description of the commenter’s organization and its interest in the Call Report and Profile will help the NCUA use the input provided.
