To ensure compliance with tax regulations, contractors who work with US-based companies are asked to provide one of three different tax documents:
- W9, when the contractor is located in the US and is working with a US company
- W-8BEN, when the contractor is not based in the US, and is working with a US company
- W-8BEN-E, when the contractor is not based in the US, working with a US company, and is contracting through an entity
Contractors are asked to provide these documents during onboarding. Existing contractors with Remote accounts will also be asked to upload one of these documents. Companies hiring contractors can view and download these documents on Remote.
