Before the beginning of each fiscal year, the Bank shall prepare a budget estimate. The budget estimate shall be examined by the Board of Directors and processed in accordance with the Budget Act.
After the close of each fiscal year, the Bank shall settle all accounts and prepare financial statements. The financial statements shall be examined by the Board of Directors, examined and approved by the Board of Supervisors, and processed in accordance with the Financial Statement Act.
At the close of each fiscal year, the Bank shall set aside fifty per cent of its net profit as legal reserve. In case the amount of the accumulated legal reserve equals or exceeds the Bank's current capital, the percentage herein prescribed may, subject to the resolution of the Board of Directors and the concurrence of the Board of Supervisors, be reduced to a level no lower than twenty per cent.
The gain or loss from the Bank's assets or liabilities denominated in gold, silver, foreign currencies and other forms of international reserve, resulted from changes in parity of the national currency, or changes in the value, parity or exchange rate of these assets and liabilities relative to the national currency, shall not be listed in the Bank's annual income stateatement.
Any gain from the above changes shall be posted in the Exchange Reserve Account, and any loss shall be offset in the balance of that Account.
