CRA and business loan extensions

Question: 
A small business loan was originated last year for 12 months and the maturity was extended this year for another 12 months by modifying the note with a new maturity date. Is this modification included in our small business loan data?
Answer: 

For CRA purposes, both refinances and renewals are reported; refinances are transactions where a new loan obligation (a note) satisfies and replaces the prior obligation, while a renewal refers to the extension of the maturity date of the loan. Both are considered (and reported if a CRA reporter) for CRA purposes. A modification that extends the term of a loan would thus be a reportable transaction for CRA. This methodology differs from HMDA. The CRA Q & A provides guidance on this topic.
