Additional Information:

When a business pays an independent contractor $600 or more over the course of a tax year, it is required to report these payments to the IRS on an information return called form 1099-MISC. Businesses use the name, address and Social Security or tax identification number from form W-9 to complete form 1099-MISC.


As Clio is a Canadian company, we do not provide W9 forms. Our Finance team has instead provided a W-8BEN form, which you can download below:
