ITIN for US work?
Can't believe it's taken me so long to register here, and to open with a numbers question! Brilliant community!
Anyway, my question is this - I'm set up as a designer in the UK (sole trader) but I'm on a retainer and do the vast majority of my work for a US based company. They've asked my to fill out a W-7 form and get an ITIN number but I'm not convinced I need one - given that I'm based in the UK, registered in the UK and invoice from the UK, should I need to deal with the IRS at all?
I called the IRS directly (luckily I have free international minutes) and the helpful guy on the other end said that the US company didn't need to file anything for me but the company I work for is still unsure.
Anyone with experience of this sort of thing? Any advice much appreciated!
- I Work with a lot of US Companies, and When i Fill the W-7 form i Only Select that im Not a US Citizen, a Signature and that's all...
You don't have to Provide your ITIN number....
Hope this Help You!
