Selling On Demand videos requires a Vimeo Standard and higher or Vimeo Pro and higher membership.
All Vimeo On Demand sellers must submit their tax forms as soon as possible. All Vimeo On Demand payments will be subject to a 24% withholding of gross sales if you do not have an approved tax form on file by the time your income is generated.
You will require your TIN to submit a W-9 or W-8 Form before receiving any Vimeo payments.
How do I determine my TIN?
Determining your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) depends on where you are located as an individual or entity. Here’s how you can find it:
- For U.S.-based individuals: Your TIN is the same as your social security number.
- For U.S.-based entities (corporations, partnerships, LLCs, etc.): In general, your TIN is usually the entity’s Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). In some cases (e.g., LLC, S-corp corporations, partnerships), however, the TIN may be that of the owner. Consult with a tax professional to determine what your TIN is.
- For creators based outside the U.S.: If you are a U.S. citizen living abroad, you must provide a TIN. If you are a non-U.S. citizen residing outside of the U.S., you may either provide a W-9 (if you have a TIN) or a W-8 (if you do not have a TIN).
