TO THE MANAGERS OF ALL CALIFORNIA AGENCIES/BRANCHES OF FOREIGN BANKS:
Both the FFIEC 002 forms and the Report of Income must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, July 31, 2017. Banks making revisions to the FFIEC call report should email a scanned copy of the revisions to email@example.com, 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 our San Francisco office at (415) 263-8559 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 in PDF format consolidating their California operations and a reports 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 to the Department of Business Oversight, 45 Fremont Street #1700, San Francisco, CA 94105-2219.
Some of the web links to download and save the forms and instructions have changed. If you have saved those links to “favorites” on your Internet browser, you may need to update them.
