Tipalti solves the complex, highly-manual accounts payable process of collecting tax information through digital capture directly during the onboarding flow, ensuring information is validated before a payment is ever processed. Ensure FATCA tax compliance with tax form data validation along with withholding calculations, as prescribed by KPMG LLC.

Be FATCA-Compliant & Slash Tax Risks

Collecting W-9 and W-8 BEN IRS tax forms from suppliers as a year-end scramble doesn’t cut it in today’s heavily regulated environment. Tipalti’s tax solution for US payers simplifies the process and helps your company comply with IRS and FATCA tax provisions. With a process prescribed by KPMG, you can rest easy knowing your AP operation is always up-to-date with the latest US tax laws.

Seamlessly Integrate Tax with Supplier Onboarding & Payments

All payees are required to fill out tax forms or provide their VAT/local tax ID as part of self-registration on the Tipalti portal before a payment is processed. Your company won’t be stuck with penalties and fines for failure to collect required W-9 or W-8 forms. No bolt-on processes, just simplicity for suppliers and your AP team.

Digitize Tax Form Collection & Validation for Ease of Use

Tipalti’s guided tax form wizard helps suppliers of US payers choose the correct form based on country and business structure – W-9, W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8EXP, W-8IMY, W-8ECI, or Form 8233. Once the correct tax form is selected, Tipalti has digitized the tax form documents and applies 1,000+ rules including TIN matching to ensure the proper data has been provided. No printing, signing paper, scanning, or filing. It’s all collected digitally and optimized for electronic signatures. At year-end, Tipalti generates 1099 / 1042-S tax preparation reports and calculates any necessary withholdings.
