Virtually all telecommunications providers are required to comply with a variety of ongoing FCC reporting obligations and regulatory fee payment submissions. These obligations generally commence once a provider has been authorized to provide service and include filing quarterly and/or annual FCC Forms 499 as well as contributing to the Universal Service Fund and a variety of other federal regulatory funds, among other important FCC requirements.
Examples of the types of telecommunications providers generally covered by these obligations include international service providers, long distance resellers and facilities-based carriers, prepaid card providers, wireless providers, Mobile Virtual Network Operators, local service providers, and interconnected VoIP providers.
After an evaluation of your company’s business model, we will determine the specific FCC filing obligations required of your organization. The Customized FCC Compliance Package encompasses preparing and submitting required forms on your company’s behalf. Approximately one month in advance of each applicable filing, we will pre-fill the required forms with as much information as we are able to supply, sending an initial email to you that requests any additional data (or assessment payments) that the filing would require for completion. Using the data you provide, we will make applicable calculations that the filing requires, assess exemptions and liability minimization strategies so that your contribution or payment is accurately computed, and prepare a finalized version, which we will then email to you.
When we receive the completed filing and assessment payment from you, if applicable, we will submit the materials to the FCC, along with a transmittal letter and the appropriate number of copies to ensure that the form is properly and timely filed. In some instances, electronic submission is available for FCC filings, which we will utilize whenever possible.
A sample of services potentially offered in our Customized FCC Compliance Package is as follows:
- Annual FCC Forms 499-A.
- Quarterly FCC Forms 499-Q and/or De Minimis Worksheets.
- International Telecommunications Traffic Reports.
- Regulatory Fees submissions (annual).
