F.S. 663.09
663.09 Reports; records.
(1) An international banking corporation doing business in this state shall, at such times and in such form as the commission prescribes, make written reports in the English language to the office, under the oath of one of its officers, managers, or agents transacting business in this state, showing the amount of its assets and liabilities and containing such other matters as the commission or office requires. An international banking corporation that maintains two or more offices may consolidate such information in one report unless the office otherwise requires for purposes of its supervision of the condition and operations of each such office. The late filing of such reports is subject to an administrative fine as prescribed under s. 655.045(2). If such international banking corporation fails to make such report, as directed by the office, or if such report contains a false statement knowingly made, the same shall be grounds for revocation of the license of the international banking corporation.
(2) The international banking corporation of each state-licensed international bank agency or international branch shall perform or cause to be performed an audit of such international bank agency or international branch. The commission shall, by rule, prescribe the minimum audit procedures including the audit reporting requirements which would satisfy the provisions of this subsection.
(3) Each international banking corporation that operates an office licensed under this part shall cause to be kept, at a location accepted by the office:
(a) Correct and complete books and records of account of the business operations transacted by such office. All policies and procedures relating specifically to the operations of such office, as well as any existing general ledger or subsidiary accounts, must be maintained in the English language. Any policies and procedures of the international banking corporation which are not specific to the operations of such office may be maintained in a language other than English.
(b) Current copies of the charter and bylaws of the international banking corporation, relative to the operations of the office, and minutes of the proceedings of its directors, officers, or committees relative to the business of the office. Such records may be maintained in a language other than English and must be kept pursuant to s. 655.91 and made available to the office, upon request, at any time during regular business hours of the office. Any failure to keep such records as aforesaid or any refusal to produce such records upon request by the office is grounds for suspension or revocation of any license issued under this part.
(4) In addition to any other reports it may be required to make, an international banking corporation which maintains an international bank agency or international branch in this state shall make reports to the office in such form and at such times as the commission prescribes by rule concerning the management, asset quality, capital adequacy, and liquidity of the international banking corporation.
(5) The office may require at any time that any document not written in the English language which the office deems necessary for the purposes of its regulatory and supervisory functions be translated into English at the expense of the international banking corporation.
