It is crucial for all Vimeo On Demand sellers to submit their tax forms as soon as possible. All Vimeo On Demand payments will be subject to 28% withholding of gross sales if you do not have an approved tax form on file by the time your payment is generated.
Read below to learn which form to submit, and how.
Instructions for U.S. sellers
U.S. residents and entities must submit a W-9 form and will not be subject to withholding once a valid form is submitted.
You can submit your form electronically on your Payment Settings.
Instructions for sellers from other countries
Residents of other countries must submit a U.S. W-8 tax form and will only be subject to withholding if it is legally required for your country.
Businesses and organizations: If you're selling on behalf of a business or organization, you can submit a W-8BEN-E from your Payment Settings page on Vimeo.
Individuals: If you're an individual seller, you must first check this IRS page to see if your country has a tax treaty with the U.S.
If your country is listed on the IRS page above, you will be not subject to any withholding from Vimeo if you submit a W-8BEN tax form with a valid tax treaty claim.
Download the form and then submit a completed copy to taxforms @ vimeo [dot] com.
If your country is not listed above, your net revenue will be subject to 30% withholding if you complete a valid W-8BEN form. You can submit all the necessary forms on your Payment Settings page.
