9:00 – 10:30 am MT

Special requirements. CIP. Tax reporting. Foreign taxpayer identification numbers. You need to know about all these issues and more when opening accounts for people who are not US citizens. You also must be able to differentiate between resident and nonresident aliens. Get the knowledge you need with this jam-packed webinar.
It all starts at account set up.  Nonresident alien accounts have special requirements. In addition, the rules became more complex last year with the new requirement for a foreign taxpayer identification number. Open these accounts with ease, beginning with this webinar that will explain how to:

Don’t miss the chance to learn how to document, identify, and report a nonresident alien account. 
  • Distinguish when a consumer is a resident alien or nonresident alien
  • Properly set up the W-8BEN for interest-bearing accounts
  • Identify which countries require a foreign taxpayer identification number
  • Start backup withholding even without proper documentation
  • Run your customer identification program
  • Withholding manual
