Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is amending its regulations governing the periodic account statements that commodity pool operators (``CPOs'') are required to provide to commodity pool participants and the annual financial reports that CPOs are required to provide to commodity pool participants and file with the National Futures Association (``NFA''). The amendments: specify detailed information that must be included in the periodic account statements and annual reports for commodity pools with more than one series or class of ownership interest; clarify that the periodic account statements must disclose either the net asset value per outstanding participation unit in the pool, or the total value of a participant's interest or share in the pool; extend the time period for filing and distributing annual reports of commodity pools that invest in other funds; codify existing Commission staff interpretations regarding the proper accounting treatment and financial statement presentation of certain income and expense items in the periodic account statements and annual reports; streamline annual reporting requirements for pools ceasing operation; establish conditions for use of International Financial Reporting Standards (``IFRS'') in lieu of U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (``U.S. GAAP'') and a notice procedure for CPOs to claim such relief; and clarify and update several other requirements for periodic and annual reports prepared and distributed by CPOs.
