Misbehaving bankers could be forced to repay bonuses from previous years under plans set to be unveiled by the Bank of England, according to the BBC.
It could mean bonuses paid out as long as seven years ago being returned, even if they were paid in shares and have already been cashed and spent.
The BoE had already warned in March that bankers could face clawbacks for "misbehaviour", including if their bank registered big losses.
Reports at the time suggested bonuses from up to six years ago would be at risk, though that appears to have been extended to seven years.
Another previous suggestion had been to cancel promised bonuses, but the Bank's position appears to have hardened.
