REMINDER:  A majority of GCU's international artists have NOT submitted a new W-8BEN form.  On this new form you will provide your Foreign Tax ID number AND birthdate which allows you to take advantage of your country's tax treaty.
 
This is NEW for 2017 to assist you in receiving your full earnings!
 
Without this new form, per usual, GCU is required to withhold 30% from your earnings.  With this new form, you can have ZERO withholdings by taking advantage of your country's tax treaty.
 
It's is EASY!
1. download the form from our blog:
https://gcucommunity.com/2016/05/27/nuts-and-bolts-international-artists-new-w-8
ben-form/
2. complete and sign
3. email to GCU Susan@GCUniverse.com
 
Hurry as 4Q2016 payments are being processed to be sent by the end of this month!
 
If you have questions or need assistance completing the form, email Susan.  She is happy to assist!

Hi Mindy
 
I sent in my form some months ago but I didn't receive any acknowledgement.
 
Can I assume that it was all in order?
 
Thanks -

Hi Mindy,
 
I emailed my form to Susan beginning of this year. I checked and the address I used was susan@bigdates. I copied the email from the address posted on the blog. Should I resend it to susan@GCUniverse?
 
Thanks,
Joy

Hi Mindy,
 
Sorry to be a bother. I was wondering if Susan received my emails since I haven't received any reply from her. I sent one email to her on Bigdates and the other on GCUniverse address. Both emails had the copy of my W-8BEN form.
 
I understand that if International artists send in the form, we would receive our earnings in full. I had a question for her regarding the 30% pay cut from Q4.
 
 
Thanks,
Joy

Hi Mindy, Lisa here. Smiley I don't always go on the forums, but this caught my eye and I was Just reading this thread..and a bit confused.  I have been with GCU a long time and submitted my w-8ben with my ITIN number a few years ago to your accountants.  They said all was in order.  I have not seen any with holdings in my last earnings and payments so I am thinking all is okay. Just want to double check to make sure that I dont need to do another one? Sorry I am a bit confused.   Thanks so much,  best wishes, Lisa Lorenz

Hi Mindy, further to my post, about the W-8BEN, Sorry about my confusion...lol.    I thought best to send Susan my new form.  I sent to her just now today.    I had submitted the same revised form last year to some other POD sites  I deal with.  Thanks, and have a great weekend Lisa.

Hi Joy,
 
I believe Susan did respond to your email but wanted to follow up with this forum thread and confirm.  
 
Hi Lisa,
 
Thank you for sending any updated form. Susan will be in next Thursday and be able to respond then.
 
Hope you both have a wonderful weekend!
 
Kindest regards,
 
KC
