Where or how should a foreign contractor be set up in QBO? Vendor or Employee?

As in W9s results in a 1099 (employee setup) where would W8s fall under.

Where or how should a foreign contractor be set up in QBO? Vendor or Employee?

I'd like to help you set up a foreign contractor in QBO, nancy-yang.

 

You'll want to use this 1099 vs W2 Employee calculator to identify if you'll set up the contractor as a Vendor or an Employee

 

You can also turn on your Multicurrency settings to pay foreign contractors. 

 

However, the option to enter the W-8 information is unavailable in QuickBooks Online. You can reach out to the IRS for instructions about the form.

 

Let us know if you have other questions.
