TO: MANAGERS OF ALL CALIFORNIA AGENCIES/BRANCHES OF FOREIGN BANKS:
Subject: FIRST CALL 2015; Submission of the Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches
Starting with the Second Quarter 2011, it is no longer necessary to submit hard copies of the Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches, FFIEC Form 002. Please submit one copy of the form electronically in PDF format only. Banks having multiple agency or branch offices in California should submit a report consolidating their California operations and a report for each individual office. For example, a foreign bank having offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles would submit a total of three PDFs. If you cannot submit the report in PDF you may continue to send hard copies.
The FFIEC 002 forms must be emailed to email@example.com by Thursday, April 30, 2015. Banks making revisions to the FFIEC call report should send a copy of the revisions to this office and keep a copy in the call report file at the bank. Foreign banks having more than one office should submit a revised report both for the affected office and on a consolidated basis. Questions regarding the completion of the required reports should be directed to Patrick Carroll in our San Francisco office at (415) 263-8559 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
