Thanks very much for your help, I really appreciate it! You've made me feel lots better. I've heard some horrifying things about the US government going after people in other countries for taxes and stuff and got into a bit of tizz lol. Thanks again and apologies if I derailed the thread a bit :)

I'm feeling a bit scared now - I'm from the UK and did the tax interview earlier today as I was setting up my KDP account (I haven't published anything yet), but I definitely didn't type in my National Insurance number anywhere. I have my number memorised from years of having to write it out and would have remembered if I had entered it on the form. The form submitted okay though.

I read on another thread someone mentioned entering a UTR when doing the set-up. Again, I didn't see anything specifically asking to enter my UTR. I do have a UTR as I've been registered as self-employed for a couple of years now. Actually, the more I think about this, the more scared I'm feeling!


If you're publishing as an individual, you use your NI number. If you're publishing as a business, you put in your business ID. However you do it, the U.S. has a tax treaty with the U.K. and so your withholding on U.S. sales should be zero. Of course, you're still liable for any U.K. taxes on this income.

Thanks so much for your advice. I've gone back to the form as per Emily's advice and posted a thread a short time ago asking more specifically about the form - hopefully that will help someone else in the same position as I'm in. Thanks once again!
