Label: Interest Rate Swaps
Concept Guidance:
This is the value, as at the relevant date, of interest rate swap contracts, consistent with the classification and measurement basis used for derivatives by institutions in accordance with accounting standards.A Swap is a financial instrument representing a transaction in which two parties agree to swap or exchange some obligation, generally a series of cash flows on differing terms.An interest rate contract is any contract that transfers the interest rate risk of an underlying asset from one party to another.Derivatives are generally defined as those instruments/contracts, where the value is based on other products, and/or on prices associated with financial products. Derivative contracts involve:- Future delivery, receipt or exchange of financial items such as cash or another derivative instrument; or- Future exchange of real assets for financial items where the contract may be tradeable and has a market value.The contracts can either be binding on both parties (e.g. as with a currency swap) or subject to the exercise by one party of a right contained within the contract (as with options).Report this item regardless of whether favourable or unfavourable to the reporting entity. 
Form-Specifc Guidance:
For an interest rate swap, the fixed leg should be allocated to the time bucket corresponding to the residual maturity of the swap and the floating leg should be allocated to the time bucket corresponding to the next rate reset date. Additionally, the pay side should be recorded as negative the face value, while the receive side should be recorded as positive the face value.

The repricing analysis should be completed on the basis of the expected repricing profile of assets and liabilities, rather than the contractual repricing (i.e.. contractual loan repayment rates) or original maturity. The expected repricing profile of assets and liabilities should take into account expected loan prepayment/amortisation rates and deposit portfolio run-off, rather than contractual repricing where these are expected to be materially different. Where the terms and conditions of a banking book item provide for the full break cost of early withdrawals or repayments ('economic cost') to be charged to the customer, and it is the ADI's standard practice to do so, the ADI may use the contractual rather than expected repricing profile for that item provided this practice is applied consistently over time. This is intended to allow entities to produce a more accurate representation of the interest rate risk of the balance sheet, and it results in practices such as the spreading of core deposits over a longer, expected repricing profile and the shortening of asset profiles to account for loan breaks.
Dimensions
Dimension Member Description
(NotionalPrincipalAmount)
This dimension identifies the measurement scenario under which the reported value was calculated.
The value reported is the notional principal amount. The notional principal amount represents the face value, or gross amount, of an off-balance sheet transaction.This does not represent the fair value.
(GT6MLTE12M)
This dimension is used to categorise information reported according to the remaining time in which the interest rates applying to portfolios (e.g. investments, loans, deposits & borrowings) are expected to reprice (i.e. term to next interest rate repricing/change). They do not indicate the residual term of the original maturity of the instrument itself, however the two may coincide (e.g. fixed rate items such as banks bills, term deposits, money market loans).
The reported information relates to items that have a remaining term to maturity of greater than 6 months, but less than or equal to 12 months.
