Key Notes:

  • The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis requires the reporting of certain statistical data on foreign direct investment in the United States. This includes reporting data when a foreign entity acquires a U.S. business, when a foreign entity or its existing U.S. affiliate establishes a new legal entity, or when an existing U.S. affiliate of a foreign entity expands its U.S. operations.
  • Filing a response is mandatory under the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act unless the business does not meet the filing requirements. The act protects the confidentiality of the data that companies submit.
  • A qualifying U.S. business must file a response no later than 45 days after the date of the investment transaction.
