Please be informed that due to legal reasons Connexity cannot give official advice on how to fill in the W8 document. Therefore, the below is simply a reference of how other publishers have filled in the document in the past:
Page 1: Fill in completely
- Status / entity type (n.4) for most publishers is „Corporation“
- FATCA status (n.5) for most publishers is „Active NFFW”
Page 2: Usually 14a is filled in
Page 7: Usually 39 is filled in
Page 8: Signature, Name, Date and Check box need to be filled in („I certify that I have the capacity to sign for the entity identified on line 1 of this form.”) Usually all other pages are not filled in.
Concerning the bank document, please be informed that the Owner of the Bank account needs to be identical with the Company stated in your W8. All publishers need to validate with their bank that they are capable of receiving the respective currencies (EUR respectively USD). Once Connexity has all needed documents, the final approval will take 1-2 weeks.
