CBRS

The Cost Basis Reporting Service (CBRS) mitigates potential endless paper trails, added costs and added operational risk associated with firms manually transferring their cost basis information. The previous version of CBRS allowed financial firms to pass customer cost basis information on assets transferred through the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC)'s Automated Customer Account Transfer Service (ACATS).

About CBRS

The enhanced service extends its efficiencies and capabilities to transfer agents, issuers, mutual funds, custodian banks and broker/dealers to move cost basis information from one financial firm to another on all assets. Expand the sections below to learn about CBRS Input Information Flow, Content Types for Input Records, how Asset & Tax Lot Records Form a Package, and some basics about CBRS Processing.
