A W8-BEN form is a legal U.S. Treasury document that is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The form allows foreign investors to claim concessional tax treaty benefits, including a reduced rate of withholding tax.

Superhero is authorised to collect your W-8BEN information, certification and declaration electronically. We capture this information during the account setup process.

The information we capture will include your personal information, citizenship, country of tax residency, tax file number, or international equivalent.
