Depuis la dernière MàJ, on peut s'inscrire au Player Studio. Mais c'est loin d'être évident, c'est pas non plus gratuit (cf le Wiki ou le forum officiel) et ça ne concerne que les joueurs de plus de 13 ans.

À un moment, on nous demande de choisir un formulaire. A priori, le formulaire W-8BEN s'adresse uniquement aux particuliers. CF : http://www.cibcmellon.com/Contents/f...20140328a.html

PDF donnant pas mal d'infos sur ce formulaire : http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iw8ben.pdf. Il y est notamment question de royalties.

En tombant sur cette page, je me suis dit : "chouette, une aide en français pour le remplissage des formulaires". Pourtant, j'ai l'impression de lire une langue étrangère malgré tout

Je vais essayer de vérifier ça en regardant à qui s'adressent les autres formulaires...
- le WECI semble s'adresser aux particulier et entreprises non US commerçant avec le marché américain. Là faut un "TIN" pour ce formulaire et je sais pas encore trop à quoi ça correspond...
- le W-8IMY semble s'adresser aux intermédiaires
- le W-8EXP semble s'adresser aux organisations et gouvernements non US

J'ai testé le premier formulaire, qui me semble être celui qui concerne les particuliers que nous sommes pour la plupart.
Voilà les questions qu'on nous pose. J'ai répondu YES partout, sauf à la 2, mais je n'ai encore rien validé. C'était juste pour avoir les questions et espérer pouvoir trouver de l'aide pour les comprendre. Voici les questions - je mets en gras ce qui concerne un particulier né et résident en France :

Si vous avez l'erreur : "An error occurred while moving to next question. Please log out and log back in if you are unable to continue or contact the administrator." c'est probablement que vous avez été déconnecté de SOE pendant que vous remplissiez le formulaire. Cliquez sur "Save and Exit", réidentifiez-vous et retournez au formulaire. Vous devrez ré-entrer quelques informations pour récupérer un nouveau code PIN et reprendre où vous en étiez.


Je me suis arrêté là, j'ai pas encore testé plus loin. Maintenant j'essaye de comprendre les questions.

Question trois : qu'est-ce qu'un "Independant Contractor" ? Pour l'instant j'essaye de comprendre cette explication en la comparant avec ce qu'on fera dans Landmark... Autre source d'info : pour cette question http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-...ed-or-Employee

À suivre donc. Si vous y comprenez quelque chose, n'hésitez pas à partager

EDIT : Rajoute de la suite... En gras ce que j'ai choisit pour MON cas, à savoir le cas d'un particulier né et résidant en France, qui n'a pas de n° de taxe quelconque, et qui habite là où il reçoit son courrier...

Je viens de découvrir qu'il existe un forum officiel "Player Studio". Je ne l'ai pas encore parcouru mais il semble y avoir quelques réponses à certaines de nos questions...

Il existe aussi une page officielle pour le Player Studio de Landmark : https://www.landmarkthegame.com/player-studio
