Congress is considering providing regulatory relief for small banks—the topic of CRS Report R43999, An Analysis of the Regulatory Burden on Small Banks. But how are small banks defined and are they different from community banks? Banks are typically classified as small or large based on asset size (i.e., the value of the loans and securities they hold), but there is no standard or commonly accepted threshold for what asset size constitutes a small bank. Some researchers define small as $1 billion or less in assets, whereas others define it as $10 billion or less.
