CFIUS Filing Fees

For formal written notices filed with the Committee on or after May 1, 2020, the receipt of a filing fee will generally be required before CFIUS will accept the formal written notice and begin its review of the transaction.  The filing fee regulations are found in Subpart K of 31 C.F.R. part 800 and 31 C.F.R. part 802.  

INTERIM RULE ESTABLISHING FILING FEES (MAY 2020)
