Collection Series: Troubled Debt Restructuring in the COVID Economy

$245 Tuesday, June 8, 2021 2:00 PM Register

Increased TDRs go hand-in-hand with the COVID economy. But what qualifies as a TDR right now? The CARES Act was passed to allow for short-term relief, but what happens when that expires? Join us to learn about compliant collections and reporting under COVID-related restraints.

One of the biggest concerns for financial institutions is the ever-evolving nature of loan modifications resulting from COVID-19. Early on in the pandemic, a primary concern for financial institutions was the potential for a high volume of loan modifications resulting in troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). As evidenced in the interagency guidance prior to passage of the CARES Act, short-term modifications (i.e., six months or less) would not be recognized as TDRs. Section 4013 of the CARES Act allowed for a temporary suspension of GAAP for TDRs. The Agencies have encouraged financial institutions to work prudently with borrowers and provide loan modifications to mitigate the pandemic’s adverse effects.  

This session will focus on loan modifications under both interagency guidance and the CARES Act, troubled debt restructurings, how to account for modifications in 2021, and current regulatory guidance. Join us to learn how this impacts your institution
