Phase III - 2018 Data Collection Approach - 26 November 2018
Firstly thank you once again to all the firms which met the requirements for our 2017 Data Collection Exercise. We do appreciate the time and resources required to fulfil this request.
With the year-end fast approaching, we wanted to communicate our approach for collecting 2018’s data, Phase III of our Supervisory Data Collection Exercise.
This exercise will begin promptly in the New Year on 14 January 2019. We will be asking for the same data for 2018 as we previously collected for Phase 1 and Phase II. This is to determine whether there is any significant change from the 2017 data which was provided and also to help us establish the frequency of our future data collection exercises.
For those registered to undertake any of the following, you will need to submit your data by 1 March 2019:
- Estate Agents
- Lenders (not banks)
- Money Service Business (not banks)
All other sectors will need to submit data to us by 5 April 2019.
We will be using the same process for collecting the 2018 data as we used for the 2017 data, whereby you download, complete and submit an Excel spreadsheet via the MyJFSC portal. Rather than issuing the request in phases as we did this year, all of the data collection spreadsheets will be released together on 14 January 2019.
For the Banking sector, we are also collecting Wire Transfer data for 2018. The timescales for submitting this data are the same as above, although there is a separate spreadsheet that needs to be downloaded and completed via the portal.
Our Guidance Notes will be updated for the 2018 requirements and will be available on our website before the data collection exercise begins on 14 January 2019.
If you have any queries or do not receive an email on 14 January 2019 inviting you to submit your data, please contact your respective Supervision Manager or Supervision Team.
Thank you once again for your ongoing commitment to this exercise.
Director of Supervision
