Tax certificate

Company Client wanting to set up as supplier for his client ...

Didn't find your answer?

The country of supply is the USA.

I've searched online and there does not appear to be a 'certificate' as such. Rather you have to write a letter and get HMRC to confirm that your tax affairs are up to date.

Just checking - this is right?

Its not a certificate of residency that is wanted.

What exactly are they asking for???

How about Coy House service:-
Order a certified certificate
Use this service to order a signed certificate of incorporation, which can include key details about the company and a statement of good standing.

Never heard of one of those and not sure why it would be a fact of interest to the US company.

Is it a W-8 form they are asking for? I have a limited company that started to trade with the US and had to complete one of these. Ask to client to speak to their contact in the US and ask them exactly what they want.

Its looks as though its none of the above.

They usually want a certificate confirming that you are registered to pay tax in the UK

see here:

W8 has to be sent with the actual goods when sent.

Isn't that to do with VAT refunds Jennifer?

Maybe we should all stop guessing & wait for the OP to clarify.

This was the form my client had to complete because they were a company. The form usually lasts 12 months. www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8bene.pdf and it was completed and submitted before the client started trading.
