23VAC10-330-20. Computation of net capital.
A. Generally. The net capital of a bank is computed as follows:
1. Compute gross capital by adding the following
accounts as reported on the report of condition:
preferred stock, (2) (ii) common stock, (3) (iii)
surplus, (4) (iv) undivided profits and reserve for contingencies
and other capital reserves, and (v) one half of any reserve for loan losses
net of applicable deferred tax.
2. Deducting from the gross capital:
assessed value of real estate as set forth in 23VAC10-330-30, (2) (ii)
book value of certain tangible personal property as set forth in
23VAC10-330-30, (3) (iii) the pro rata share of capital
attributed to U.S. government obligations as set forth in 23VAC10-330-30, (4)
(iv) certain capital accounts of bank subsidiaries as set forth in
23VAC10-330-30, (5) the total of (a) the applicable amount of any reserve
for loan losses as regulated herein and (b) (v) the applicable
amount of any reserve for marketable securities valuation as regulated herein
in this section, and (vi) the value of goodwill as defined by subdivision B
8 of this section.
B. Terms used in this section. The terms used in this section,
requiring further explanation, and
which that are not regulated
elsewhere are as follows:
Capital stock. "Capital stock" shall
include all outstanding shares of capital stock of all classes as shown on the
official report of condition of the bank or trust company.
Surplus. "Surplus" shall be the amount as
shown on the official report of condition of the bank or trust company and
shall include, if any, reserves for contingencies and other capital account
Undivided profits. "Undivided profits"
shall be the amount as shown on the official report of condition of the bank or
Gross capital. "Gross capital" shall be the
total of capital stock, surplus, and undivided profits, and one half
of any reserve for loan losses net of applicable deferred tax as regulated herein
in this section. 5. Reserve for loan losses. An established reserve for loan
losses, not in excess of the amount of reserve allowable by the Internal
Revenue Service for federal taxable income tax purposes, is allowable in
computing the net taxable capital of a bank. If a portion of the reserve for loan losses allowable for
federal income tax purposes is included in gross capital (surplus, undivided
profits or surplus reserves) on the bank's official report of condition, such
portion may be deducted from total capital in computing net taxable capital. If the amount of reserve for loan losses deducted by the
bank in computing total capital accounts shown on its report of condition
exceeds the amount of reserve for loan losses allowable for federal income tax
purposes, such excess must be added to total capital accounts in computing net
taxable capital. The details of all reserves for loan losses and any such
deduction or addition must be reflected in Schedule G of Form 64, Bank
Franchise Tax Return.
5. Reserve for loan losses. An addition to gross capital must be made equal to one half of the reserve for loan losses net of applicable deferred tax.
a. "Reserve for loan losses" is the amount of the reserve for loan losses as shown on the bank's official report of condition.
b. "Applicable deferred tax" equals the "reserve for loan losses" divided by two and then multiplied by the bank's effective federal and state income tax rates that were used to calculate any deferred tax amounts included in the bank's official report of condition, but not less than zero.
6. Valuation reserve for marketable securities. For purposes of computing net taxable capital, an established reserve carried on the books of the bank for valuation of marketable securities is allowable to the extent that such valuation reserve does not decrease the carrying value of securities (gross value of securities included in report of condition less valuation reserve) below the current market value of the securities on December 31 next preceding the due date for filing the bank franchise tax return.
If any portion of such allowable reserve is included in total capital accounts on the bank's report of condition, such portion may be deducted from total capital in computing net taxable capital.
Any portion of a valuation reserve included in computing total capital accounts which is in excess of an allowable reserve must be added to total capital in computing net taxable capital.
The details of all valuation reserves for marketable
securities and the details of any such deduction or addition must be reflected
on Schedule A of Form 64, Bank Franchise Tax Return.
7. Official report of condition. "Official report of condition" shall be the report of condition required by the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of the Treasury, or the Bureau of Financial Institutions, State Corporation Commission.
8. "Goodwill" shall be determined using generally accepted accounting principles.

that is (1) (i) owned by such bank , or (2) (ii)
used or occupied by such bank if held in the name of (a) of a
majority-owned subsidiary of the bank or, (b) of a bank
holding company which that owns a majority of the capital stock
of such bank, or (c) of any wholly owned subsidiary of the bank
holding company which that owns a majority of the capital stock
of such bank.
b. If real estate is in the nature of improvements to
real estate owned by and assessed in the name of another person (the underlying
land owner) and such improvements are
(a) (i) owned by the bank ,
or (b) (ii) used or occupied by the bank and owned by a
majority-owned subsidiary or by a wholly owned subsidiary of a bank holding
company, the assessed value up to the amount of unencumbered equity is
deductible. The unencumbered equity shall be deemed to mean the assessed value
of such improvements less the unpaid balance of all encumbrances thereto.
1: Bank F constructs a bank building on land
owned by and leased from Corporation C. While the total value is assessed in
the name of Corporation C, the land owner, Bank F may deduct the portion of the
total real estate tax assessment attributable to the value of the building to
the extent not encumbered.
2. Real estate used or occupied by a subsidiary or real estate originally conveyed as collateral for loans made by a subsidiary of the bank and reacquired upon foreclosure of mortgage loans will be deemed to be used or occupied by the bank.
1. a. The assessed value for the deduction of
real estate shall be the value for the most recent tax assessment made prior to
January 1 of the current bank franchise tax year for real estate owned by the
bank or affiliate on January 1 of the current franchise tax return year and
shall include the assessment for real estate acquired during the preceding year
even though assessed for such preceding year in the name of the prior owner. 2. b. If the same real estate is assessed by
more than one taxing jurisdiction, such as town, district and county, the
assessed value of only one of such jurisdictions may be deducted from gross
capital. 3. c. If the real estate is owned by a
majority-owned subsidiary of a bank, and the bank does not own all the stock of
such subsidiary, the bank shall be entitled to deduct only such portion of the
assessed value of the real estate as the common stock it owns in such
subsidiary bears to the outstanding common stock of such corporation.
C. Book value of certain tangible personal property. Tangible
personal property qualifying for deduction must be
(1) (i) owned
by the bank or a majority-owned subsidiary of the bank, and (2) must be (ii)
held for lease, and (3) must be (iii) otherwise taxed in

2. If the tangible personal property is owned by a majority-owned subsidiary, and the bank does not own all the stock of such subsidiary, the bank shall be entitled to deduct only such portion of the book value of such tangible personal property as the common stock it owns in such subsidiary bears to the whole issue of common stock of such corporation.
D. Capital attributed to U.S.
The allowable deduction for government U.S. obligations shall be
an amount which shall equal the same percentage of the gross capital account at
December 31 next preceding the bank franchise tax year, as the obligations of
the United States bear to the total assets of the bank. Qualifying government
U.S. obligations means all obligations of (1) (i) the United
States exempt from taxation under 31 U.S.C. Section USC § 3124, or
the United States Constitution, or any other statute, or (2) (ii)
any instrumentality or agency of the United States which obligations shall be
exempt from State state or local taxation under the United States
Constitution , or any statute of the United States.
1. Computation of deduction. The percentage of U.S. obligations shall be determined by averaging the percentage of U.S. obligations to total assets for the four most recent (or less in case of a new bank) Reports of Condition. The average percentage shall be multiplied by the gross capital of the bank as defined in 23VAC10-330-20. The result shall be the capital attributed to U.S. obligations and is the deduction.
2. Merger of banks. Banks merging during the year must use the
four most recent quarterly Reports of Condition, including any reports filed in
the name of the banks prior to merger, to compute the capital attributable to
government obligations. Those quarterly Reports of Condition filed
in the name of each bank prior to merger, and used in the computation of
capital attributed to U.S. obligations, must be combined on a quarterly basis
to properly reflect the total U.S. obligations and total assets of the merging
Gross capital account means the capital, surplus and undivided profits at December 31 next preceding the tax year. See 23VAC10-330-20.
E. Retained earnings and surplus of certain subsidiaries. The deduction from gross capital of the bank is limited to the amount of increase in the bank's recorded investment in its subsidiaries resulting from undistributed earnings of such subsidiaries.
The deduction from gross capital of the bank is limited to the amount included in gross capital on the bank's report of condition which represents the undistributed earnings of its subsidiaries during the period of the bank's investment in such subsidiaries. Accordingly, it may be applicable only if a bank reports its subsidiary investment accounts at equity values.
