What is a W-8 BEN form?
A W-8 BEN form is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form that serves as a Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner. By completing this form you confirm that you are 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.
This form is automatically completed based on the information you provide during the onboarding process. It is then signed electronically when you complete onboarding.
We will be making this completed W-8 BEN form available in-app in a future version.
