I am a Spanish freelance translator and a potential client has asked me if I could provide an IRS W-9 with my invoice. What does that mean? In Spain I do have to pay taxes for being "freelance" and I have a tax number, is that enough?
I am a bit confused with foreign taxation systems :S
Soy traductora autónoma y un cliente potencial me ha puesto como condición que le pueda proporcionar un "IRS W-9 with my invoice". ¿Qué es eso? Estoy dada de alta en el régimen de autónomos, ¿se refiere a eso o es algo diferente?
The W8-BEN form provides the client with proof for the IRS that you are not a US taxpayer and therefore they are not required to withhold income taxes from the amounts they pay you. It is a necessary formality.
