I do have a freelancer account and an agency account on oDesk for a real company. I'd like to apply to a job on the behalf of the agency account. To get paid, tax information is required.
The company (a real one) is based in Hong Kong.
oDesk asks me to fill in the W-8BEN form, which is for individuals, not companies (should be W-8BEN-E).
oDesk says that they want the owner of the company to fill the individual tax form.
I did email oDesk support. They answered me with copy of their policy rules and a comment asking me to fill in the tax form for individuals and that they don't care about agencies.
A few months ago, there was no different tax forms for individual and business, I think their support has no answer to give.
I do not want to be charged on my individual taxes as I own an agency and am taxed through them. How do I keep my individual taxes out of this and still work as an agency on oDesk?
