I have now received certain forms from the U.S.
Datek have sent me a W-8BEN(October 1998) which looks suspiciously like an updated version of the W-8(November 1992)that Comsec have sent me. Comsec also sent a Form 1001 (Sept 1995)"Ownership, Exemption, or reduced rate certificate".

At this stage I think I'll go with Datek, when I can russle up the AUD$3k+ to kick off an account.

could you shed some light on these forms and a laymans summary of the tax treatment (ie withholding tax)or point me to relevant message numbers previously posted on (US) tax
