US with holding tax for UK author - process same as Amazon?

I am looking at publishing my first ebook and I am looking at either going with KDP or with Lulu which seems to allow me the best of both worlds - Amazon and then the rest in one hit.


On Amazon, the process of supplying my UK tax number and therefore paying 0% US tax is quite straight forward. What I want to know is if I supply this same information to Lulu when I set up to publish, will this information go thru to Amazon and therefore any sales from them will be still at 0% tax? or do I need to separately set up my tax affairs with Amazon?


  • If you publish and distribute through Lulu, we will be responsible for collecting and withholding taxes on all sales.


    Here is a link to the W-8BEN article that includes the tax form and instructions for submitting it.
