Carleton may be requested to provide a W8-BEN-E (Certificate of Status of Beneficial Owner for United States tax Withholding and Reporting (Entities)) to accompany signed contracts, grants or other funding agreements with institutions based in the United States. These forms confirm that Carleton is a Canadian not-for-profit organization and is exempt from US tax withholdings at source.

For a duly executed copy of the W8-BEN-E, please contact the Manager, Research Accounting.
