Compliance iStock_000033418316SmallWolters Kluwer Financial Services announced the availability of its new solution to help financial institutions operating in China manage offshore assets and liabilities as well as trade reporting.

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ foreign assets and liability reporting, or FAL, system can help institutions operating in China comply with the State Administration of Foreign Exchange’s latest rules. SAFE’s rules, designed to simplify direct investment relationships with foreign entities, are the latest step toward deregulation and market reform by China’s government and regulators.

The FAL rules require financial institutions operating in China to acquire and report on foreign exchange business data in accordance with an initial report submission deadline of October 10, 2014.  The new reporting requirements pertain to foreign receipt and payment truncations; account data; foreign currency purchase and sales activity; foreign debt data; and data tied to assets, liabilities and trading with overseas economic entities.

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ FAL system supports all reports required by SAFE, automatically generating the required documents and interfacing to SAFE’s reporting system for submission. The solution provides an audit trail of the entire reporting process and allows for authority management for cross-sector, multi-level users of the system. All of this helps financial institutions create a more transparent, efficient reporting process.
