Life insurance and friendly societies reporting requirements

What's new

Reporting requirements

Life insurance and friendly societies are required, under the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001 and its reporting standards, to provide data to APRA. The data is defined in the set of reporting forms and instructions. Some forms are subject to audit requirements.

Direct to APRA (D2A) is software used to encrypt and submit data.

Plain English Taxonomy (PET) provides a description and interpretation of APRA data collection requirements as set out in the prudential standards, prudential practice guides and reporting guidelines.

Standard Business Reporting (SBR) is an Australian Government initiative led by Treasury that simplifies business–to–government reporting.
