Fee factors used for the calculation of the annual supervisory fees levied by the ECB on credit institutions to be reported to FIN-FSA by 1 July 2019 | EBA
According to Regulation (EU) 1024/2013 (SSM Regulation) article 30, the European Central Bank (ECB) shall levy an annual supervisory fee on credit institutions established in the participating Member States and branches established in a participating Member State by a credit institution established in a non-participating Member State. The size of the annual supervisory fee is determined by the significance status (significant / less significant) and the fee factors i.e. total assets and total risk exposure of the supervised entity. Further information on the determination of supervisory fees can be found in ECB Regulation (EU) 1163/2014.
The fee debtors shall submit the data regarding the fee factors to Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) by 1 July 2019 according to ECB Regulation (EU) 1163/2014 article 10 paragraph 4. The fee factor data is reported using the fee factor templates (Excel templates) available on the ECB’s website (see also attachments). Further information on the reporting of fee factor data can be found on the ECB’s website, in the instructions for completing the fee factor templates (see attachments) as well as in ECB Decision (EU) 2015/530 on fee factors.
According to ECB Decision (EU) 2015/530 article 7 paragraph 2 (c), fee-paying branches must also submit an auditor’s statement certifying the total assets of the fee-paying branch to FIN-FSA. The requirements for contents of the auditor’s statement are the same as for the data collection of 2018.
