What is the difference between IRS W-8BEN and W-8BEN-E forms?
Sure, I can address tax issues here. You would use the W-8 Ben for an individual situation. And, you would use the W-8 Ben E for a company situation.Though, the actual completion of the form center on how the US international tax provision taxes the foreign person or company on the income. So, we first apply the tax law based on the fact situation at hand. So, the form completion centers on tax law and treaty law.Then, and if the person or company home country has a specific tax treaty with the US, we would then apply the exact treaty provision for mitigating (reducing) the withholding required.Here, we need to understand how treaties work and apply the most recent treaty or possibly and updated protocol or competent authority position between the US and the home country when we complete the treaty section of the W8-Ben or Ben-E. The above represents the procedure I have used when dealing with this situation. As with all events dealing with the US tax law completing this form correctly and fully provides for the best outcome allowed by tax law and treaty law.I have completed the above based on the fact situation. If the income type or facts change above, the tax results may change for sure. www.rst.tax
Do I need to pra W-9 form to customers asking for it?
A W-9 is for US persons only (companies and individuals). A W-8BEN-E is for foreign companies.It depends on whether you are selling software that is regarded as a product, rather than a license for which you are receiving a royalty.Legally, the software is almost certainly provided under license, and is a royalty. But for tax purposes, if you don't have the right to replicate or resell, it's essentially a product. Think of buying a copy of Windows. That's a product.If that's all you do, there's no need for a W-8BEN-E.So much for the technical mumbo-jumbo. It doesn't really matter. The W-9 request is sent to you by a company's accounts payable department. If you call them and say "I don't have to send you a W-9", they will likely tell you they will have to withhold 30% of your fee on account of tax. To get it back, you'd have to file a US return.The AP clerk would be wrong. So you escalate, right? Go to the AP supervisor, who either doesn't know the answer, or is afraid to risk his job. So he punts to the  VP tax, who calls his external accounting firm. Eventually, the right answer is provided, and it makes its way down the chain, right?  And then your customer puts in place a whole new protocol to figure out just when a W9 or W-8BEN-E is required.Wrong. Nobody wants to play this game. In reality, your customer says, "get a US Employer Identification Number, and fill out a W-8BEN. Otherwise we won't buy from you."And you find a firm like ours, which will charge you C$600 to get the EIN, and another $600 to fill out the W-8BEN-E, and you're done. That's how you make a customer happy (or at least avoid pissing them off).
