FAQs

Submitting your tax info

Why am I being asked to complete this form?

We need your tax information because you earn money through Google products, buy Google services that require your tax information, and/or are paid through Google entities located in countries that require it. Where Google is required to withhold taxes on our payments to you, submitting your tax information allows Google to apply the correct withholding rate and ensure that timely payments are made.

Can the withholding rate be reduced?

The rate of withholding depends on several factors, which Google needs your tax information to determine. If your country/region has a tax treaty with the country/region where you earn money through Google products, withholding may be reduced.

What happens if I don’t complete this form?

Your payout may be subject to a higher withholding tax deduction if local tax law requires taxes to be withheld from your payout.

Note: The status of tax residency information related to tax exemption with Ireland or Singapore will not result in account limitations, or impact payouts or withholding tax. We will let you know in the event of any changes.

Tax residency info

Proof of tax residency

A business or individual’s tax residency country/region is where they are responsible for paying taxes. The country in which you reside is not necessarily your tax residency country. To determine your status, consult a tax adviser or your country/region’s tax residency criteria.

Google requires proof of tax residency to determine our withholding obligation on the payments made to you.

For more information, refer to Tax residency certificates (TRC)

Tax residency certificates (TRC)

A tax residency certificate is a specific document that indicates the taxpayer's residency. A government issues such a certificate to prevent tax fraud resulting from the incorrect application of the provisions of international treaties on the avoidance of double taxation. You can use a TRC to show that you deserve to benefit from the application of double tax treaties, and to comply with local tax regulations.

Requirements for a tax residency certificate:

  • Is a government-issued document created for the purpose of validating tax residency.
  • If the TRC indicates a country related to a tax treaty, the treaty must pertain to the country.

Tax treaties

How do I determine whether I qualify for a tax treaty benefit?

Consult a tax adviser or your tax residency country’s guidance to determine what income tax treaties are in place and whether the type of income you receive from Google is included in a specific tax treaty provision.

Can Google help make this determine if I qualify for a tax treaty?

Unfortunately, Google can’t make this determination for you. You may need to seek professional tax advice to determine your treaty eligibility.

Do I need to complete the form if I’m not claiming treaty benefits?

Even if you're not claiming any treaty benefits, Google may still be legally required to withhold and report taxes on income earned through our products. Therefore, your tax information may still be required.

General questions

If I have questions while I complete the form, where can I go for help?

If you need help to resolve technical issues, contact Google support. However, Google can't provide you with tax advice. If you need tax advice, speak with a professional tax adviser.

What if I’m not the right person to submit tax information?

If you're not the right person to submit tax information, you can forward the email to the correct person within your organization to sign in. That person must have administrator access to the Google payments profile. They can then use the information provided in the email to submit tax information. To give the signatory administrator access to the payments profile, follow the steps to manage users in your payments profile.

Can I complete the process on my tablet or smartphone?

We highly recommend completing this process using a laptop/desktop.
