Why does Superhero need my tax information?

For us to meet our Australian and International tax reporting and withholding obligations, we need more information from you when you make your first deposit with Superhero.

By collecting information on your citizenship, tax residency status and tax identification numbers, we will be able to fulfil our tax reporting obligations and if applicable, you might benefit from lower concessional withholding tax rates and/or franking credits.

In certain circumstances, we must ask for and you are required to provide additional information, whereas some information we ask for is optional – we will provide further information where necessary.

When investing in US securities, the additional information (including a declaration) you provide will constitute a W8-BEN or W9 form in relation to withholding tax under a tax treaty between your country of tax residence and the US Government (if applicable).
