The liability for securing a W-8 or W-9 rests with the purchaser of the transportation service based in the USA. The IRS, if and when doing an audit of the purchaser's payables, can then trace the legitimacy of the company receiving the payment, through the carrier's Tax ID #.Hello,
We are a, service provider. With corporate office based in USA. Our CDN branch.
Requires all qualified carriers - Part of our packet. For a, W9 or W8....
It's really the same thing. 9 dig-get #. Just different taxation system.
Alot of our, connecting CDN Carriers only have a, W8. And it works fine within our, system.
Hope this info, helps!
All the best!
