Yes. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations require each U.S. person that had transactions with foreign persons in the covered services or intellectual property during its 2017 fiscal year to file a BE-120, regardless of whether or not they have been contacted by BEA. Additionally, while there is some overlap between the two surveys, the BE-120 collects additional information not covered by the BE-125 survey. Any revisions or adjustments to transactions not reported on your 2017 BE-125 filings should be made on the 2017 BE-120.
