Why do I need to complete the W-8BEN form?

Completing the W-8BEN form will allow us to apply the relevant – often lower – tax rate, in accordance with any treaty the US may have signed with your country of residence.

Failing to complete the form within the requested timeframe may lead to a withholding tax of 30% being applied to your dividend earnings from US equities, regardless of any bi-lateral treaties. It could also lead to restrictions on your trading account.
