U.S. persons with combined transactions in excess of $8 million (based on absolute value), would be required to disaggregate all transaction types by country and by relationship of the foreign transactor to the U.S. reporter (foreign affiliate, foreign parent group, or unaffiliated) on the mandatory schedule(s). On the current survey, the reporting requirements are applied for each transaction type separately. This change will align the survey’s reporting requirements with those of the other quarterly services surveys conducted by BEA. BEA also proposes to change the due date of the survey to 30 days after the close of each calendar quarter from 45 days for the three quarters that are not the final calendar quarter of the year. For the close of the final calendar quarter of the year, reports would be due 45 days after the close of the quarter instead of 90 days. Shortening the reporting timeline will allow BEA to produce more accurate and complete trade in services statistics in preliminary estimates of the ITAs, which is critical information for policymakers’ timely decisions on international trade policy. The earlier due date will allow BEA to use more reported data for preliminary statistics, improving the accuracy of both the aggregates and the country detail, and reducing revisions in subsequent statistical releases. In addition, the proposed reporting deadlines are also consistent with the reporting deadlines of BEA’s quarterly direct investment surveys. BEA estimates there will be a small change in the number of respondents that would now be required to provide additional country and affiliation detail on the mandatory schedules due to the change in reporting requirements. Most quarterly respondents are large enough that they are already required to report detail on the mandatory schedules. BEA estimates that approximately 13 additional respondents would now be required to provide the additional detail that were not previously required to do so, and on average would report transactions with 3 countries. The additional mandatory reporting for individual transactions previously below the reporting thresholds, resulting from the application of the threshold to combined transactions, should have a minimal impact on reporting burden for the reporters who will now be required to complete the mandatory schedules. Since these respondents represent only a small portion of the total number of reporters already filing full country and affiliation detail, and because BEA believes this VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 data is readily available in their existing accounting records, overall burden for completing the full survey with data will continue to average 9 hours per response. BEA estimates there will be no change in burden hours per response as a result of the proposed change in survey due dates. While survey respondents will have to file earlier, the burden for the survey is unchanged because the same information will be required on the survey as in the past. The language in the instructions and definitions will be reviewed and adjusted as necessary to clarify survey requirements. II. Method of Collection BEA contacts potential respondents by mail at the end of each quarter. Respondents would be required to file the completed BE–45 forms within 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter that is not the final quarter of the year and within 45 days after the close of the final calendar quarter of the year. Reports would be required from each U.S. person that had combined transactions in the covered insurance services with foreign persons that exceeded $8 million (based on absolute value), for the previous calendar year or are expected to exceed that amount during the current calendar year. Entities required to report will be contacted individually by BEA. Entities not contacted by BEA have no reporting responsibilities. BEA offers its electronic filing option, the eFile system, for use in reporting on Form BE–45. For more information about eFile, go to www.bea.gov/efile. In addition, BEA posts all its survey forms and reporting instructions on its website, www.bea.gov/ssb. These may be downloaded, completed, printed, and submitted via fax or mail.
