MVA White Collar Defense, Investigations, and Regulatory Advice Blog: Treasury Department Publishes Proposed Rule on CFIUS Filing Fees

March 2020

Charlotte White Collar, Regulatory Defense, and Investigations Associate Elena Mitchell and Member Frank Schall’s MVA White Collar Defense, Investigations, and Regulatory Advice Blog article titled, “Treasury Department Publishes Proposed Rule on CFIUS Filing Fees” was published on March 25.

The article

Further implementing the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (“FIRRMA“), the U.S. Department of the Treasury recently published a proposed rule to establish filing fees for parties filing voluntary notices of certain transactions for review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). Under the proposed rule, CFIUS would accept a transaction for review only after payment of the filing fee. The proposed rule remains subject to public comment through April 8, 2020, and does not specify when the filing fee requirement would begin to apply to transactions under the final rule. The final rule likely will increase CFIUS’s scrutiny of transaction valuations to ensure appropriate fees are paid pursuant to the new fee structure.
