Hi
How did you do it? i dont have an ITIN number, which they say they need.

I know how to get an ITIN number, ive just never needed to before.

"You must also include original documentation or certified copies from the issuing agency to prove identity and foreign status"

Issuing agencies want lots of cash to authenticate original documents.

Any tips if you are form the UK and did this process?

Confused as you're mentioning Getty and this is the Shutterstock forum.

If you want to know about SS, I haven't a clue, sorry.

If you're wanting to know about Getty, you give them your UTC (Unique Tax Code) which is our equivalent. Miss out the space in the middle or it will be rejected.

I honestly can't remember what I sent them, but I didn't need to pay anyone to authenticate anything; I was very concerned about that apparent requirement. I remember reading about it on the old iStock forum, as others had the same concern.

I think your NI number would alternatively suffice.

I think it may be that your NI number would also suffice on its own.

Hi Sue,
Oops sorry, why did i accidentally slip that in the wrong forum, yes to getty
Great info thanks.

You know you have to redo your tax form every 3 years? or if anything changes?

You have to do it if anything changes, for sure.
I'm don't know if there's any other requirement to redo it. Sometimes people have reported issues, but these seem to be localised and they contact Support to get it sorted. Apparently.
