The SRB has published an explanatory note for information purposes detailing the calculation of the individual ex-ante contributions of institutions to the SRF for the 2016 contribution period. The data used in the calculations was as reported to National Authorities at the beginning of 2016, following which the SRB adopted uniform data definitions, formats and instructions in its calculations. The SRB also adopted a set of rules to ensure that data validation was conducted uniformly. In its calculations, the SRB has deducted one-eighth of the contribution that was raised by National Authorities in 2015, and transferred to the SRF, from the amount due from each institution. According to the SRB, the 2016 payment obligation also takes into account any adjustments of the 2015 ex-ante contributions that were the results of restatements or revisions of the information on which that calculation was based.
