In order to withdraw funds, I need to fill out a W-8BEN form. This includes entering a company name. Does this mean I have to have a business certificate with a legal name? If I get an individual activity certificate (which for my type of work is most appropriate), I don't get to have any legal company name. Has anyone got any reccomendations as to what I should do? Any other Lithuanians maybe?

Hi Andrius,

 

You can also add your full legal name and submit your W-8BEN form. If you have any additional questions or need help with something, let me know. Thank you.

Hi Goran,

 

Does legal name mean my name in my government identification, like my passport?

Do I need to add my legal address too?

I'm from Egypt.

Hi Mostafa,

 

You can use your own legal name and address as it appears in your passport or other official documents to complete the W-8BEN, which purpose is to confirm you're not a US taxpayer.

 

Thank you.
