BoE published an amended Branch Return Form. BoE is planning to consult on the proposed change to the Branch Return Form. This change asks firms to indicate the accounting standard applied by them in cell H30 in the Cover tab, as shown in the amended form.
Unless and until the relevant rule is amended, the form in the PRA Rulebook remains unchanged and, therefore, use of the amended form and provision of the additional information is not mandatory. As this change is an addition to the existing form, it is considered that a firm’s use of the amended form will comply with the requirement in the PRA Rulebook to provide information in accordance with the existing Branch Return Form.
