A BE-10 report is required of any U.S. person* that had direct or indirect ownership or control of at least 10 percent of the voting stock of an incorporated foreign business enterprise – or an equivalent interest in an unincorporated foreign business enterprise – at any time during the U.S. person’s 2014 fiscal year.

A U.S. person that has been contacted by BEA for filing the BE-10 must file a BE-10 Claim for Not Filing form if it does not meet the above filing requirements. However, a U.S. person that does not meet the reporting requirements and that has not been contacted by BEA is not required to report any BE-10 form to BEA.

*See the BE-10 Instruction Booklet for the definition of “person” and for additional information.
