Introduction to the Online Reporting Process

The Central Bank requires financial service providers to submit financial data relevant to their businesses, at specified intervals. This information is used as a way of monitoring the operations of financial service providers and their compliance with relevant legislation as well as regulatory requirements. It is also used for the collection of statistical data.

The amount and type of information that the Central Bank requires to be included in the returns varies between financial sectors. Annual returns are required in all cases, with additional returns required at other periods.

Full details of the sectoral requirements are available in the reporting requirements section of the Financial Regulation Industry Sectors

This data is submitted by means of a secure web based system: Online Reporting System (ONR).

An outline of the main changes to the Online Reporting System is located in this summary document.

An ONR User Manual is also available.
