Nuts and Bolts: REMINDER: NEW W-8BEN Form

January 20, 2017

Nuts & Bolts – REMINDER: NEW W-8BEN Form


A majority of GCU’s international artists have NOT submitted a new W-8BEN form.  On this new form you will provide your Foreign Tax ID number AND birthdate which allows you to take advantage of your country’s tax treaty.


This is NEW for 2017 to assist you in receiving your full earnings!


Without this new form, per usual, GCU is required to withhold 30% from your earnings.  With this new form, you can have ZERO withholdings by taking advantage of your country’s tax treaty.


It’s is EASY!
1. download the form from here
2. complete and sign
3. email to GCU


If you have questions or need assistance completing the form, email Susan.  She is happy to assist!




The difference is made in the details!
