Received an email from Burst the other day asking me to fill out an W-8BEN-E. Now I've filled out W-8BEN's for my company before and it's been a 1 page name address and "nope I'm not an American" easy process.
But this new W-8BEN-E is an eight page monster. And you have to choose some new thing called a FATCA designation...and there are a ton of them. You almost need a degree to understand it all.
I'm pretty sure most foreign websites (I'm in Canada) would fall under Active NFE, but has anyone else here filled this beast out?
