    On-lent amount

    This is a term used in the adjusted on-lent amount calculation for a financial entity to describe all amounts the entity has lent to other entities. It also includes the value of certain leases and certain securities agreements.

    An on-lent amount is relevant to calculating a financial entity's safe harbour debt amount. Generally, on-lent amounts represent the financial entity's on-lending business, which is subject to a concessionary on-lending rule.

    A financial entity's on-lent amount is the sum of the following assets:

    • the value of debt interests issued to the financial entity by other entities
    • the value of leases for the hire of goods that are not debt interests issued by other entities where the
      • leases are for six months or more
      • leases are part of the business of hiring goods carried on by the financial entity, and
      • financial entity's business of hiring goods is not carried on predominantly for the purpose of hiring goods to any of its associates
    • the value of securities held by the financial entity that
      • have been sold by the entity under a reciprocal purchase agreement, sell-buyback arrangement or securities loan arrangement, and
      • have not yet been repurchased by the entity under the agreement or arrangement
    • if the entity carries on a business of dealing in securities but not predominately for the purposes of dealing in securities with, or on behalf of, the entity's associates, all the shares that
      • the entity holds
      • are listed for quotation in the official list of an approved stock exchange, and
      • are not shares in any of the entity's associate entities.
