Complete and File Reports
Obtain Reporting Forms and Instructions
The Federal Reserve uses reporting forms to collect data from holding companies, depository institutions, other financial and nonfinancial entities and consumers. Submission of the forms is required in some cases, voluntary in others. Some data are collected frequently, others only occasionally. The information gathered by these reports aids the Federal Reserve in carrying out its responsibilities for the conduct of monetary policy, the supervision and regulation of the banking industry and the protection of consumers’ rights.
Bank and Financial Holding Companies are required to file various reports with the Federal Reserve System in accordance with Section 225.5(b) of Regulation Y and Section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act. The accuracy and timeliness of these reports are critical because the information is used in the Federal Reserve System's ongoing monitoring, surveillance and supervisory programs.
