HKMA has finalized the revised Capital Adequacy Ratio return (Form MA(BS)3) and the associated completion instructions for banks. Reporting institutions should submit the return to HKMA, via the STET system, starting from the reporting period ending March 31, 2019. However, as the new regulatory capital treatments on an institution’s holdings of non-capital LAC liabilities will take effect on April 01, 2019, the reporting of the relevant items in the return reflecting such treatments will only be required from the reporting period ending June 30, 2019.
