What is a W-8 BEN form?

A W-8 BEN form is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS – US Tax Authority) form that serves as a Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner. By completing this form you confirm that you're not a US taxpayer and that a reduced rating of Withholding may be applied depending on your country of residence and any tax treaty between that country and the US.

When you open a trading account with Revolut, your W8-BEN form is automatically completed based on the information you provide. You then sign it electronically during onboarding.

We'll be making this completed W-8 BEN form available to clients in-app in a future version. For now, contact our customer support if you need a copy of your W8-BEN.
