Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) Regulatory Reporting
SolveXia is a technology provider offering powerful and versatile process automation software. Our solution is used by ASX market participants to assist in the preparation, review and reconciliation of regulatory reporting such as Schedule 1A (Capital Liquidity Requirements). Experienced the following benefits:
Challenges facing organisations
- Staff preparing Schedule 1A as part of their regular daily and month end practices are subject to ongoing time pressures leading to greater human error risk, job dissatisfaction and reduced time for the analysis and communication of results.
- A key person dependency risk, with intimate knowledge of the Schedule 1A reporting process being lost when staff leave or change roles.
- Minimal auditability and control over the preparation, validation and reconciliation of Schedule 1A calculations.
- Limited opportunity for improvements to current procedures due to a lack of clear and logical documentation and limited understanding of the process.
- Time and cost constraints associated with sourcing IT/Programming resources to automate these manual processes.
How SolveXia helps
SolveXia allows users to create an end-to-end automated Schedule 1A reporting processes. Source data files including key counterparty exposures (e.g. Equity, Options, Securities Borrow-Lend and Position Risk), General Ledger Trial Balance extracts and exchange rates in various formats including Excel, Text/CSV and Access are uploaded to the process and manipulated to produce the key outputs required for the ASX Schedule 1A lodgment including Counterparty risk, Rule 1A Trial Balance and Credit Facilities.
The automated process can be configured by staff without the need for IT involvement or a large IT development project. As SolveXia works with your source files, users simply add “steps” to interact with (and manipulate) their files at each stage of the process.
Users also utilise SolveXia’s workflow functionality to designate steps in the process for the review and approval of the reporting outputs. Key output files are automatically emailed to the CFO (or others who may be responsible) who can review and approve or reject the results. Responses and feedback (if any) from the reviewer/s are automatically recorded in the process documentation.
To further enhance the control and audibility of the Schedule 1A process, every change to the steps and files in the process are recorded and automatically documented in SolveXia. Users can also choose to store a locked-down historical snapshot each time the process is run, including the process steps and the files used. SolveXia also maintains an up-to-date and live specification of the Schedule 1A process describing each step in enough detail to allow a user to reproduce the entire process manually.
SolveXia has templates that can be used as a guide to configuring your own end-to-end Schedule 1A reporting processes.
