Carrier’s Carrier

A telecommunications provider that primarily provides B2B services to other carriers is classified as a carrier's carrier. Carrier's carrier companies offer transmission, data transport, voice and other services on a wholesale basis to other carriers for resale to end customers or further resale to downstream service providers. 

The FCC's regulations governing the relationships between carriers supplying telecommunications inputs and the downstream carriers purchasing and reselling the inputs are complex and highly consequential, if you fail to adopt reasonable measures to ensure compliance.

We can help determine if your revenue meets the FCC's test and qualifies as "Carrier's Carrier" and, thus, properly reported as wholesale in Block 300 of FCC Form 499-A.  We can also help you develop and implement tax exemption and USF exemption policies & procedures to ensure your company properly records and reports revenue for tax and regulatory fee purposes.
