PUPID Wire Transfer
by Ken Golliher, BOL Guru
Guru Bios

Question:  Have you heard of a financial institution requiring the beneficiary of a PUPID wire transfer (a non-customer) to complete a form W9 (Request for TIN and Certification) or W8-BEN. I understand the necessity of positively identifying the recipient of the funds but the use of this form seems unusual? Iíve done a little research and cannot find any other references or guidance recommending this. Am I missing something?

Answer:  The Internal Revenue code, not BSA, requires the execution of the W-9 or the W8-BEN in appropriate circumstances. The form is simply irrelevant to wire transfers.
