Q: § __.42(a) – 1: Must institutions collect and report data on all commercial loans of $1 million or less at origination?
A: No. Institutions that are not exempt from data collection and reporting are required to collect and report only those commercial loans that they capture in Call Report Schedule RC-C, Part II. Small business loans are defined as those whose original amounts are $1 million or less and that were reported as either “Loans secured by nonfarm or nonresidential real estate” or “Commercial and industrial loans” in Call Report Schedule RC-C, Part I.
