Episode 24: Tracking IRS Form W-8 Expiration Dates... Yet Another Fabulous Task AP Gets To Do

The last episode of the podcast Episode 23:  US Entity:  Validations Required to Setup a Non-Us (Foreign) Vendor talked about what documents to collect and how to validate them for Foreign vendors.  On today’s podcast I keep that conversation going by talking about that added task that everyone loves to do when you collect a version of the W-8 form to setup vendors in your vendor file.  That is tracking the W-8 Expiration Dates.
