We took a Dr who had no place to stay on a busy college weekend in here for two nights. I billed the hospital, like I was asked to do from the specialists office. Now A/P are telling me they will not pay without a W-9. I have never been asked for a completed W-9 ever here, for any corp or college we have billed.
Have you ever had this requirement? If so what did you do?
It kinda irks me to fill it out and I am ticked that they are reluctant to pay for rooms they used!
Advice? Just fill it out or what?

I think it is the procedure that UVA has here too. We make our innkeepers fill out one too. If they are like our red tape, you will not be paid without one. I believe they want proof you will be reporting the income.

Same for me. The large state university in my town had me fill in a W-9.

yes, just fill it out and get it to them right away so they don't hold up payment. see if you can fax it over. quickest way. it shouldn't take you long to fill out and you should keep the info on file so you can do it quickly if it happens again.
the hospital is it? will likely put you in their data base and you won't have to do this again except to say annually that it's all the same info. universities do this also. it's for their tax returns so they don't have to chase down the info later on. much easier to get the info from a vendor before paying ... because the vendor has a reason to reply promptly.

I had to do this as well for our university as part of the direct billing process.

I had to do one for the State to be paid for workshops and had to get one on file for MABB for our grants reimbursements. Also had to do one for the Feds I think when i did something for the Park Service.

Hopefully it won't be like one of our state offices where it took four months to receive a check for a single night at the per diem rate stay. It cost more of my time to keep following up on it than it was worth in the end.

i agree with you there - i don't like it. they agreed to payment on receipt just to get the room i suppose. you are too small a business to have a lot of that going on. i only had one guest like that where i was presented with a form instead of payment. i totally ticked off the guest by refusing a third party payment and saying i need payment from you, now, and i filled in the form for payment to go to HIM. he did not stay with me again.

UVA takes 30 days to pay. Period. I don't know if it's because we're a state university or not.

I get quite a few professors from several universities stay here on business. Of these only one has been payment via check and they did require me to complete the form, which they sent via email and I faxed it back with the invoice for payment. No problem, it's not like I am not reporting my income and paying taxes. I prefer payment at time of service but they do give me enough business to warrant the change in my policy for them. This particular Univ. has been very prompt in paying, so I guess I am lucky in that regard.
