Since 2011, and with an increase of scope in 2014, many entities have to deliver a monthly report to the Central Bank of Luxembourg. For the uninitiated, it may be complicated to navigate through the codifications and terminologies to be used. In order to fill-in and file accurate reports, mastering the above-mentioned rules are essential.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • better understand the background of the Central Bank of Luxembourg reporting and why companies have such an obligation;
  • understand all the codes used for the classification, the accounting framework to be used or how to properly split the information in the trial balance to ensure a good reporting;
  • prepare CBL reports after participating to a practical case and share experience with the instructor on a simple holding company.
