MNB issued guidance on the correct presentation of certain regulatory modifications, which were announced to reduce the economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic, in liquidity reporting. MNB provided information regarding reports on cash flow, liquidity coverage ratio (LCR), and foreign exchange financing compliance indicator (DMM/KONSZDMM/KDMM). Announcements also cover information on reporting of repayment moratorium. Additionally, MNB announced requirements for the extraordinary reporting for enhanced monitoring of lending, liquidity, and portfolio quality of credit institutions to assess the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. MNB has provided the list of credit institutions that are required to provide this extraordinary information.
MNB issued a letter to domestic lending and payment institutions asking them to prepare for the period following the end of the repayment moratorium by strengthening their business and monitoring processes. The institutions have been asked to develop financing schemes and payment offers that will enable them to remedy any payment difficulties of their debtors. The central bank will continuously monitor the restructuring of the internal operations of lending and payment institutions, their adaptation to the new economic situation, and their preparations for the post-payment moratorium period.
