Case Study: Employer Identification Number (EIN) & W-8BEN-E -Non-Resident

Employer Identification Number (EIN) & W-8BEN-E -Non-Resident

Case Study: Employer Identification Number (EIN) & W-8BEN-E -Non-Resident

We assisted a non-resident alien (NRA) and entity to obtain an Employer Identification Number (also known as a Federal Tax ID number) and assisted with completion of the Form W-8BEN-E.

The NRA provided copywriting services to multinationals via his UK Limited Company. Of these multinationals he had multiple clients in the USA. The NRA had previously completed Form W8-BEN-E in 2015 but due to a new requirement from the accounts payable department of one of his clients in the USA, they required more detailed information to be completed on Form W8-BEN-E.

He had tried and failed 3 times to complete the Form W8-BEN-E himself. We at Just Breve assisted in ensuring the form was completed accurately (including Treaty benefits with the limitation on benefits provision).

Simultaneously we assisted in obtaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) using Form SS-4 as the accounts payable department requested this as part of the Form W8-BEN-E completion.

IRS tax forms can be very complicated for those not familiar. Just Breve will assist in helping your IRS tax forms are completed timely and correctly. If you want to know how to get an EIN number or require clarification on the process, please get in touch today by email on

Testimonial from our NRA :

“I needed help with a W-8BEN-E as a longstanding client was unable to pay me due to changes in its internal procedures and stricter enforcement. In the past, I completed the form myself but the need for an EIN and more stringent requirements made it impossible in the tight timeframe required. Parvinder stepped in with good advice and a swift response.” Laurence N, United Kingdom
