Deemed Export Advisory Committee; Notice To Solicit Meeting Speakers and Presentations, 10141 [07-1063]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 44 / Wednesday, March 7, 2007 / Notices Authority: 7 U.S.C. 228. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES When will the interest begin accruing and how long will it continue to accrue? The interest on a reparation award will accrue from the date payment or remittance would have been due under the P&S Act. The interest will continue accruing at the same rate, compounded annually, until full payment is made. For example, if an Order issued October 2, 2006, awarded $800 for one transaction in which payment was due on June 30, 2006, then the Order would start interest accrual on the award as of June 30, 2006, and continue accruing the interest until the person subject to the Order makes full payment, including interest. The rate of interest used to calculate the accrual in this example would be 4.9 percent, since the weekly average 1-year constant maturity Treasury yield for the calendar week prior to October 2, 2006, reported by the Federal Reserve as of September 29, 2006, was 4.9 percent. If the reparation involves more than one transaction, the interest on the reparation award will accrue from the date payment or remittance is due under the P&S Act for the last transaction on which the award is calculated. The interest will continue accruing at the same rate, compounded annually, until the person subject to the Order makes full payment. For example, if an Order issued October 2, 2006, awarded $1500 for three transactions in which payment was due on June 15, June 30, and July 15, 2006, respectively, the Order would start interest accrual on the award on July 15, 2006, and continue accruing the interest until full payment, including interest, is made. The rate of interest used to calculate the accrual in this instance would be 4.9 percent, since the weekly average 1-year constant maturity Treasury yield for the calendar week prior to October 2, 2006, reported by the Federal Reserve as of September 29, 2006, was 4.9 percent. Beginning interest accrual when payment is due under the P&S Act accomplishes several goals. It consistently enforces the payment requirements of the P&S Act and regulations and it discourages violations of the P&S Act that are subject to the reparations process. It also encourages the parties to resolve complaints early in the reparations process, and compensates the injured party for delays in payment from the date payments were originally due.
