20VAC5-417-60. Reporting Requirements for New Entrants.

A. A new entrant shall provide the name, address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address of the person designated to receive all official mailings or notices from the Divisions of Communications and Public Service Taxation. Updates to this information shall be provided to each division within 30 days of any change.

B. A new entrant shall comply with the following economic reporting requirements:

1. At a minimum annually, or as deemed necessary by the staff or the commission, a new entrant shall be required to provide information to the Division of Communications that includes the number of access lines served, reported by residential lines and business lines and Virginia intrastate revenue.

2. A new entrant shall, on an annual basis or upon request of the staff or the commission, specify to the Division of Communications the geographic areas served within Virginia. Such information shall include the identification of specific exchanges where service is provided or offered and the wire centers associated with all collocation arrangements.

C. A new entrant shall file all reports and provide all information required for the administration of tax statutes by the Division of Public Service Taxation. Information filed with the Division of Public Service Taxation shall include financial statements and other statements showing Virginia revenues. If available, audited financial statements shall be filed. A new entrant shall maintain records of all its real property and tangible personal property located in Virginia. Such records shall include the property's original cost and location by city, county, or town and district.

D. If a new entrant establishes exchange boundaries that are not in conformance with the exchange boundaries of the incumbent local exchange carriers, maps depicting the new entrant's exchange boundaries shall be filed with the Division of Communications.

E. Should the commission determine that a new entrant has a monopoly over any of its services, whether or not those services are telephone services, it may order the new entrant to file annually with the Division of Communications data to demonstrate that its revenues from local exchange telecommunications services cover the long run incremental costs of such services in the aggregate.

F. A new entrant shall, upon request of the commission staff, file additional information with respect to any of its services or practices.
