On April 29, 2020, the US Department of the Treasury (the Treasury) issued an interim rule, effective May 1, 2020, concerning applicable filing fees for all formal notice filings with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS or Committee), essentially implementing the proposed rule issued on March 9, 2020.
Comment Period Extended
This rule implementing the filing fees is being issued as an interim rule, as opposed to a final rule, to allow for an additional comment period through June 1, 2020, for potentially interested parties who may have been unable to comment because of the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Meanwhile, however, the Treasury will begin to collect fees on May 1, 2020. This publication summarizes the CFIUS filing fee requirements.
