Filing instructions guides for the small business lending rule
The filing instructions guide is a set of resources to help you file small business lending data with the CFPB.
Each year, the CFPB publishes a filing instructions guide describing the filing process, the data fields to be reported, the validation requirements for filing, and a summary of resources to help filers. Here you can find the most recently published guide, as well as links to older versions of the guide for data collected in previous years.
Previous versions of the guide no longer apply to data being collected, but may still be the basis for resubmitting data from a previous filing period. When previous versions are available, they will be linked here.
Archived versions of the guide no longer apply to any data that is eligible for resubmission, and are provided for reference only. When archived versions are available, they will be linked here.
