From: darren-edward

Dear Reserve Bank of New Zealand,

i am looking for clarification, please note i am just a common man and looking for plain English without any confusion or legalese type language designed for persons and not the common man or woman;

i am of the understanding because debt can be sold, therefor its also considered to be classed as money by financial institutions and that the financial institutions use Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP);

I'd like a simple answer to the following,

1. When a bank gives loan to someone it goes into both the asset and liability column of a banks financial books;

2. When the loan is paid in full, the bank removes it from the asset books and the interest is placed into the income column of the banks financial books;

3. The loan still remains on the liability side of the books;

4. The bank at some stage the move this liability into the income column of their financial books, as it can only have so many liabilities;

please feel free to correct me in anyways, if what i am saying is in anyway incorrect i ask that you please clarify in anyways needed, as i stated i am but a simple man trying to figure out something that is more complicated than my current understanding

Yours faithfully,

darren-edward

Charges for providing official information and publishing responses

The Official Information Act allows charges to be imposed for the
preparation of information that we send in response to requests. The
Reserve Bank is resourced to meet disclosure obligations for a reasonable
level of requests and generally will not impose charges for small, simple
or infrequent requests. Where the request is for information that requires
substantial collation, research and preparation work, and is chargeable,
we will work with you first to refine the request to a smaller scale or
scope that is less likely to involve charges.

 

Responses to official information requests are published on the Reserve
Bank’s website. We will confirm in our decision letter to you whether we
intend to publish our response to your request.

 

Further information about charges and publishing responses is available on
