Hopfeully you're all safe during this pandemic. It's my first time to work as a freelancer on (UpWork) and have a question regarding the W-8BEN form required to get paid through my Local bank.
I had entered all the required info collected from my local bank account, but the billing information was inactive due to the W-8BEN form where it needs to be firstly compelted..
I've attached a print screen of the info required, but quite frankly, i'm not sure where to get this info from and would grealty appreciate your help with figuring this out....
Many Thanks for taking the time to read my inquiry...Waiting for your prompt repsone.

The W-8BEN form is used only to confirm you are not a US tax payer, just enter your name & address.
