Important Guidelines:

• The survey is for the year 2017 only. If you’re not on a calendar year, use the fiscal year that ended in 2017.
• Please report only in U.S. dollars or Canadian dollars.
• All questions are required. Enter "0" rather than leaving any box blank.
• You are welcome to round large amounts to the nearest thousand if it makes it easier for you to complete the survey, but you must enter all digits (i.e., enter ten thousand as "10,000"; not as "10").

• If, at any time, you need to stop, you can save your progress and come back to complete the survey at a later time.
