Acupay Wizards

Many tax related forms required by domestic or foreign tax authorities follow a standardized layout. Often they are cumbersome to fill in and store.

Acupay has created web-based platforms, so called Acupay Wizards, which facilitate the creation and storage of these forms. Custodians or their clients fill in in the required information, print the document produced automatically, print it and scan it back to Acupay. The Acupay System recognizes the document instantly thanks to barcode technology and stores it in the correct place.

When the custodian bank makes a tax relief request anytime after the Wizard-produced document has been sent into the Acupay System, the system automatically recognizes that it is on file, checks if it is valid and will not ask for it again.

6166 Wizard

Our most popular and sophisticated Wizard is our 6166 Wizard. To obtain a certificate of residence from the U.S. tax authorities - the IRS - a Form 8802 must be filled in and sent to the IRS. Since 8802 Forms must cover all possible corporate structures of the applicant, they are very complex. Acupay 6166 Wizard will only ask the questions relevant to the entity type represented by the user, auto-populate the form and liaise with the IRS after the form has been submitted into the Acupay System.

To start a 6166 application, please go to the Acupay 6166 Wizard.
