Withholding Agreement Fatca

In general, a Form W-8BEN remains in effect for the purpose of establishing alien status for a period beginning on the date of signature of the form and ending on the last day of the third following calendar year, unless a change in circumstances renders the information on the form incorrect. For example, a Form W-8BEN signed on September 30, 2015 will remain valid until December 31, 2018. However, under certain conditions, a Form W-8BEN remains in effect indefinitely until circumstances change. For the purpose of determining the period of validity of Form W-8BEN for the purposes of Chapter 4, see Treas. Reg. § 1.1471-3(c)(6)(ii). To determine the validity period of Form W-8BEN for chapter 3 purposes, see Teas. Reg. § 1.1441-1(e)(4)(ii). The retention of certificates and evidence obtained for the purposes of Chapter 3 or Chapter 61 and otherwise on 31. December 2013 does not expire before January 1, 2015, unless there is a change in circumstances that would otherwise render the detention certificate or supporting documents incorrect or unreliable.
