Form W-8-BEN and Form W-8 BEN-E are both used to collect information on non-U.S. individuals. They serve a purpose similar to that of Form W-9 for U.S. residents.
Form W-8-BEN and W-8 BEN-E are for information collection purposes. They go to the person requesting them, not to the IRS. Essentially, these forms collect information the requestor needs to make sure they are properly complying with tax laws when paying you.
