Do loans that receive that receive payment deferrals have to be reported as nonaccrual, reflect appropriate allowance for credit losses/allowance of loan and lease losses, and be charged off?

Each financial institution should refer to the applicable regulatory reporting instructions, as well as its internal accounting policies, in determining whether to report loans with accommodations to customers affected by COVID-19 as nonaccrual assets in regulatory reports. Each institution should maintain an appropriate allowance allocation for these loans, considering all information available prior to filing its reports about their collectability. As information becomes available that indicates a specific loan will not be repaid, institutions should preserve the integrity of their internal loan grading methodology and maintain appropriate accrual status on affected credits. Financial institutions should appropriately recognize credit losses according to their charge-off policies as soon as a credit loss can be reasonably estimated.
