KC Event Synopsis
In late 2014, the Department of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) re-instated the Mandatory Reporting Requirements for New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States (BE-13). The form is used to gather data on the acquisition, establishment, and expansion of U.S. businesses owned or controlled by greater than 10 percent by foreign investors. The information will be used for statistical analysis, research, and modeling purposes, and all reported data will be presented without disclosing the identity of individual investors.
In this two hour, live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an over-view and in-depth discussion of the mandatory reporting requirements.
Key topics include:
U.S. Foreign Direct Investment – An Overview
Reporting Requirements of the New Foreign Direct Investment
Determining a Foreign Direct Investment
Mandatory Reporting Process
Information Used for Statistical Purposes
BEA Survey Requirements
Identifying Affected Transactions
Qualified and Eligible Person for Filing
