Title:

Forms W-8BEN and W-9 Compliance in Foreign and U.S. Business Transactions

SKU:WT-1001436
Format: Webinar
Description:

Under U.S. federal tax law, businesses making certain payments must request a Form W-8BEN or other W-8 (foreign entities or individuals), or a Form W-9 (U.S. taxpayers), bearing certain information about the payee. Otherwise, the payor may have to withhold tax from the payment.

Compliance in this area became more complex when the IRS released two draft forms to replace the former W-8BEN when FATCA rules were issued in Jan. 2013. One was a streamlined W-8BEN for individuals, the other a more complex version for business entities with 25 separate parts and six pages (vs. one now).

With IRS audit activity aggressive in this area, tax professionals must ramp up their knowledge of the evolving Form W-8BEN. Meanwhile, ongoing issues command attention, such as when the forms are required from foreign and U.S. payees and when back-up withholding is or isn't required.

Listen as our panel of experienced tax advisors analyzes the upcoming new Form W-8BEN and provides insights for compliance with W-8BEN and W-9 for U.S. taxpayers.

Outline

Benefits

The panel will explore these and other on-point topics:
  • Implications of the new requirement for a foreign tax identifying number.
  • Circumstances that require payor companies to obtain a form from payees or to withhold because they haven't received a valid form.
  • Tactics for performing a line-by-line review to ensure a form is accurate and complete.
  • Red flags for IRS auditors right now when they look at a W-8BEN, W-9 or W-8 pulled from your company's files.
  • Scams involving fake Form W-8BENs.
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.

Upon completing this seminar, you will be prepared to comply with the latest Form W-8BENs. You will have a more solid background on when back-up withholding is required, how to thoroughly inspect a payee's form, and what to expect when IRS audits address these forms.
