What is a W-8 BEN form
If you generate income in the USA and are not a US person for tax purposes, you need to use the W-8BEN form to establish your foreign status. The W-8 BEN form allows tax exemptions and categorises you to be taxed appropriately as a foreigner.
If you invest in US stocks with Winvesta, we take care of filling and submitting the W-8 BEN form for you. All you need to do is accept the form electronically.
