Forms for credit data statistics (AnaCredit)

Nil report – AnaCredit

Institutions that are subject to reporting to AnaCredit but that have no qualifying instruments are required to submit nil reports to the Bundesbank.

For the sake of simplicity, it is sufficient for reporting institutions with constant nil reports to report these only once a year (at year-end).

The initial nil report of an agent permanently having no qualifying instruments has to be transmitted without delay.

Conversely, a reporting institution with constant nil reports must ensure that if the nil report ceases to apply during the year, a report is submitted immediately (i.e. at the end of the next month).

The completed document can be sent to the Bundesbank by post, fax or email.

Authorisation form – AnaCredit-BBk and RIAD-BBk

AnaCredit files can be submitted via ExtraNet either by the institution itself or by a third party, e.g. a service provider or the acquiring institution following a merger.

In order to ensure clear identification of the authorised submitter and thus also correct delivery of the reply messages from AnaCredit, please note that the reporting agent must submit an authorisation form to the Bundesbank if the submitter of the reports will differ from the reporting agent in future. 

We would like to point out that no (new) authorisation form is required for submitting third parties that are already transmitting reports for reporting agents at the current time (February 2021). 

However, in the case of new third-party submitters, the reporting agent must submit an authorisation form to the Bundesbank in good time, i.e. at least two weeks before the first submission date (e.g. no later than 17 March 2021 for the reporting reference date of 31 March 2021).  

If possible, please send the relevant “Authorisation form – AnaCredit-BBk and RIAD-BBk” as a PDF file to the Bundesbank by email, or alternatively by post or fax.
