Guidance on the decision to report investments in certain private funds or between entities of certain private funds in the TIC system or in BEA surveys can be found at: https://www.bea.gov/privatefunds; use the tool labeled ‘‘U.S. Investments in Foreign Private Funds’’. This change in reporting requirements aligns the U.S. direct investment and portfolio investment data more closely with the intent of the investment with respect to management control. In addition, it reduces burden for respondents, many of whom previously reported both to the TIC reporting system and to BEA’s direct investment reporting system. Note: this change applies also to these other TIC forms if the reporting requirements of the form are met: BC, BL–1, BL–2, BQ–1, BQ–2, BQ–3, D, S, SLT, and SHL/SHLA. (5) Section III.G ‘‘Direct Investment’’ has been, in effect, expanded to be equal to the detailed description of direct investment in the TIC GLOSSARY. (6) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 1’’ (section IV.A in the instructions), the phrase in parentheses in line 20 is clarified and reads ‘‘(records with Schedule 2, Item 12 = security types 1, 2, 3, or 4)’’. (7) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 1’’ (section IV.A in the instructions), the phrase in parentheses in line 21 is clarified and reads ‘‘(records with Schedule 2, Item 12 = security types 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11)’’. (8) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 1’’ (section IV.A in the instructions), the phrase in parentheses in line 22 is clarified and reads ‘‘(records with Schedule 2, Item 12 = security types 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11)’’. (9) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 1’’ (section IV.A in the instructions), the phrase in parentheses in line 23 is clarified and reads ‘‘(records with Schedule 2, Item 12 = security type 12)’’. (10) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 2’’, the third part of the note for Type 8 in line 8 is changed to read ‘‘(3) Short-term sovereign debt securities should be reported as type 11; and (4) . . .’’ (11) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 2’’, the note for ‘‘Type 11’’ in line 11 is changed to read ‘‘Type 11 should include all debt other than assetbacked securities that is not covered in types 5–10, including short-term sovereign debt securities.’’ (12) In the ‘‘Line-by-Line Instructions for Schedule 3’’ (section IV.C in the instructions), subpart 3 ‘‘Custodian VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:10 Jun 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 Code’’ is expanded to add the last line with bullet items ‘‘If you are not required to submit Schedule 2 records, please submit up to two additional Schedule 3 reports: • Using custodian code 77, submit summary data on foreign securities held directly with foreign resident custodians, including foreign-resident offices of U.S. banks or U.S. broker/ dealers, and with foreign-resident central securities depositories. • Using custodian code 88, submit summary data on foreign securities held directly, managed directly, or held with U.S.-resident central securities depositories (and for which no U.S.resident custodian is used).’’ In addition, codes 77 and 88 are included in Appendix F: ‘‘List of Custodian Codes’’. (13) Some other clarifications may be made in other parts of the instructions. The changes will improve overall survey reporting. Type of Review: Revision of currently approved data collection. Affected Public: Business/Financial Institutions. Form: TIC SHC/SHCA, Schedules 1, 2 and 3 (1505–0146). Estimated Number of Respondents: An annual average (over five years) of 306, but this varies widely from about 785 in benchmark years (once every five years) to about 190 in other years (four out of every five years). Estimated Average Time per Respondent: An annual average (over five years) of about 174 hours, but this will vary widely from respondent to respondent. (a) In the year of a benchmark survey, which is conducted once every five years, it is estimated that exempt respondents will require an average of 17 hours; custodians of securities providing security-by-security information will require an average of 361 hours, but this figure will vary widely for individual custodians; endinvestors providing security-by-security information will require an average of 121 hours; and end-investors and custodians employing U.S. custodians will require an average of 41 hours. (b) In a non-benchmark year, which occurs four years out of every five years: Custodians of securities providing security-by-security information will require an average of 546 hours (because only the largest U.S.-resident custodians will report), but this figure will vary widely for individual custodians; endinvestors providing security-by-security information will require an average of 146 hours; and reporters entrusting their foreign securities to U.S. custodians will require an average of 49 hours. The exemption level, which applies only in PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27547 benchmark years when filing schedules 2 or 3 or both, for custodians and for end-investors is the holding of less than $200 million in reportable foreign securities owned by U.S. residents. For schedule 2, end-investors should exclude securities that are held with their unaffiliated U.S.-resident custodians. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: An annual average (over five years) of 53,260 hours. Frequency of Response: Annual. Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. The public is invited to submit written comments concerning: (a) Whether the Survey is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Office of International Affairs within the Department of the Treasury, including whether the information collected will have practical uses; (b) the accuracy of the above estimate of the burdens; (c) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the reporting and/or record keeping burdens on respondents, including the use of information technologies to automate the collection of the data requested; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs of operation, maintenance and purchase of services to provide the information requested.
