On the 26th of July 2018, the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) released the Policy Statement (PS) 21/18 on Solvency II reporting format. This PS validates the change of the reporting format from Microsoft Excel workbooks to XBRL* instance documents for the following returns:

  • National Specific Templates (NSTs)
  • Internal model outputs (IMO)
  • Market risk sensitivities (MRS
  • Standard formula reporting for firms with an approved internal model (Model Drift)

The PRA considers that the benefits of moving to XBRL format, which include increased transparency, consistency, and data quality, would not be realised if firms could submit in both Excel and XBRL formats

The changes to the reporting format will be effective for submissions of year-end 2018 and applies on all UK Solvency II firms along with the Society of Lloyd’s and its managing agents.
