CASS 7 Client Money – Reconciliations and Reporting

CASS 7 Client Money – Reconciliations and Reporting

Source:

CASS states that external reconciliations must be undertaken as often as is necessary but at least once a month.

 In practice, this will be a daily reconciliation as firms which undertake transactions on a daily basis should conduct an external client money reconciliation each business day.

Common issues arising with client money reconciliations and reporting:

  • Governance and management control – existing processes provide little or no management information;
  • Overstated firm top-ups due to manual reconciliations;
  • Inability to perform contra reconciliations at transaction level on a client by client basis;
  • Duration of daily client money calculation putting external banks’ cash transfer deadlines at risk;
  • Lack of transparency on client money breaks; and
  • Complexity due to the gathering of source data from various and disparate systems.
