Interpretation

1  (1) In this regulation:

"Act" means the Financial Institutions Act;

"share" does not include a non-equity share of a credit union.

(2) For the purposes of sections 2 to 6, "financial institution" includes an extraprovincial trust corporation authorized to carry on deposit business whose primary jurisdiction, as defined in section 157 of the Act, is not Canada or a province designated under section 158 (5) of the Act.

[am. B.C. Regs. 427/93, s. 1; 565/2004, s. 1.]

Determination of capital base

2  (1) For the purposes of the Act and this regulation, the capital base of a financial institution is the aggregate amount of its capital items of the types specified in section 3 adjusted by

(a) applying any discounts under section 6 on capital items,

(b) deducting, to the extent specified in section 5 (1), the total amount of its assets of the types specified in that section, and

(c) taking into account the requirements respecting secondary capital set out in section 4.

(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1), the capital base of an insurance association is the excess of total assets over total liabilities.

[am. B.C. Regs. 427/93, s. 2; 488/98, s. 1.]

Special rules respecting the capital base of credit unions

2.1  (1) In this section:

"credit union" does not include a central credit union;

"retained earnings" includes that portion of a credit union's contributed surplus which was, prior to the amalgamation of the credit union with one or more other credit unions or prior to the acquisition of assets by a credit union from another credit union under an asset transfer agreement, retained earnings of the credit union.

(2) Subject to subsections (4) to (8), at least 35% of the capital base of a credit union as determined under section 2 (1) must consist of the credit union's retained earnings.

(3) Repealed. [B.C. Reg. 565/2004, s. 2 (b).]

(4) If, on or after December 31, 2004, a credit union meets the requirement of subsection (2) but, at any time after that, its capital base as determined under section 2 (1) does not consist of at least 35% of retained earnings, then the capital base of the credit union is an amount equal to the credit union's retained earnings divided by 35%.

(5) Subsection (2) does not apply for a period of 10 years commencing immediately after a new credit union is issued a business authorization to carry on deposit business.

(6) If the new credit union referred to in subsection (5) fails to meet the 35% requirement of subsection (2) at any time after the 10 year period, then the capital base of the credit union is an amount equal to the credit union's retained earnings divided by 35%.

(7) Subsection (2) does not apply to an amalgamated credit union resulting from the amalgamation of a credit union with one or more other credit unions or the acquisition of assets by a credit union from another credit union under an asset transfer agreement, for 5 years from the date that the most recent business authorization to carry on deposit business was issued to one of the credit unions.

(8) If an amalgamated credit union fails to meet the 35% requirement of subsection (2) within the time referred to in subsection (7), then the capital base of the credit union is an amount equal to the credit union's retained earnings divided by 35%.
