International Vendor or Payee

The IRS requires that Georgia Tech comply with specific federal tax withholding and reporting regulations when making payments to foreign vendors. As a result, Georgia Tech is required to identify all foreign vendors who receive payment from the University.  In order to comply with IRS rules, foreign vendors are required to complete the IRS W-8BEN form, along with the Foreign Vendor Profile Form. The W-8BEN form can be found at http://www.irs.gov. Additional forms may be required depending upon the type of payment received by the foreign vendor.
