What is ASIC derivative reporting?
ASIC derivative reporting regulation put in place daily reporting obligations of non-cleared OTC derivative transactions. Other than certain company types of which exemptions apply, reports cover transactions for both intra-day and overnight held positions.
What data needs to be reported under ASIC derivative reporting?
Fields required to be reported per trade include information on counterparties, instrument, price and notional amount details of the transaction, daily valuations and margin figures.
Can you report full lifecycles of trades or only positions?
For non-exempt trades, ASIC derivative reporting regulation explains the submissions types within the legislation under 2.2.1(a) & (b).
- a – states requirement for reporting each reportable transaction
- b – each reportable position
For the reporting position portion of the report, there are two options that can be used:
- Compress individual reported trades from (a) and report an end of day position per product per customer
- Report each transaction from (a) as a separate position. However, this means you also have to report when that trade is closed and send a termination report for that position.
Are snapshot reporting exemptions still applicable to CFD brokers?
No, as of July 2019, exemptions that allowed CFD brokers to solely report end of day positions has been removed. Currently, CFD brokers need to report both intraday transactions and daily positions.
