Bank Accounting Advisory Series

Bank Accounting Advisory Series
The Office of the Chief Accountant (OCA) is pleased to present the August 2022 edition of the Bank Accounting Advisory Series (BAAS). The BAAS expresses the OCA’s interpretations of accounting topics relevant to national banks and federal savings associations (collectively, banks or institutions, unless otherwise specified). We hope that you find this publication useful and that it continues to be a practical resource for bankers and examiners.

The BAAS is updated annually to address ongoing accounting questions, newly issued and updated accounting standards, and emerging issues observed through March 31. Consistent with prior editions of the BAAS, the 2022 update does not focus on questions related to the impact of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and does not reflect policy statements and rules issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 policy statements and rules address specific challenges and are not intended to be used by analogy in non-COVID-19 situations.

From there, financial enterprises will be empowered to compete in the areas that matter – namely, the service and products they offer to customers.

whitePaper | June 11, 2022

Prudent cash and liquidity management is critical in times like these. Cash management practices can make or break a business. Businesses that managed cash and liquidity prudently before the pandemic have remained resilient, while less-prepared businesses faced existential threats in the face of a liquidity crunch. As businesses emerge from the uncertainty of the pandemic and chart paths to revenue and profit growth, senior executives have a rare opportunity to rethink the way their business manages its cash. Modernizing the underlying accounts receivable (AR) systems and processes that a business uses to apply, manage, and forecast its cash can create a culture that can result in long-term cash excellence.
