My VAT number was declined. I don't know what the issue is.
I submitted it with country code and without. It has been declined twice. If I check it on VIES it is ok.
The only other thing it could be is that on VIES the name is my company name, but on the W-8BEN I entered my real name (because that's what it says on my tax returns). I will re-submit with the company name and hope that this is it. But please let me know if I miss something.
With best regards, Annett
I tried with the company name but it doesn't work. I don't know what to do. Please help.
