New CIF Prudential Supervision forms under IFD/IFR

New CIF Prudential Supervision Forms under IFD/IFR

Today, CySEC released new guidance that Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF) need to follow for the submission of the prudential forms regarding the new prudential framework (IFD/IFR). CySEC’s newly introduced Prudential Supervision forms are replacing the previous forms a CIF was required to submit throughout the year.

The new regulatory framework came into force on the 26th of June 2021, and the first submissions to CySEC were made on the 11th November 2021, for Class 2 firms only. Following the first review by the regulator, CySEC decided to revise the previous forms along with the name of the forms.

In particular, Class 2 CIF are now required to submit FORM165-01 (previously FORMZZ-01) and Class 3 CIF are required to submit FORM165-02 (previously FORMZZ-02).

The naming convention is also important for all submissions and is as follows:

  • Entities reporting as Solo:
    • Excel name for FORM165-01: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-01
    • Excel name for FORM165-02: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-02
  • Entities reporting as Consolidated:
    • Excel name for FORM165-01: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-01C
    • Excel name for FORM165-02: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-02C

It is worth noting the prudential supervision forms shall be also submitted based on the audited Financial Statements by the 31st of May 2022. For this submission, the naming convention will be:

  • Entities reporting as Solo:
    • Excel name for FORM165-01: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-01A
    • Excel name for FORM165-02: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-02A
  • Entities reporting as Consolidated:
    • Excel name for FORM165-01: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-01CA
    • Excel name for FORM165-02: XX_yyyymmdd_FORM165-02CA
