What is the relevance of W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E forms?

US tax relief at source reduces the overall withholding tax on dividends from 30% to 15%. For a QuietGrowth client to benefit from the US tax relief at source, she is required to complete the relevant W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E form.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a US government agency responsible for tax collection and tax law enforcement. If you have queries while filling the W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E form, you would need to refer to the relevant instructions available in the IRS website or obtain tax advice. QuietGrowth does not provide tax advice and is not a registered tax agent. If you have any questions about your tax situation, we recommend you speak with your tax adviser or accountant.
