What can slow down the agreement process?
Delays in any step of the process can occur. One of the most common delays is the Company Name and address on your COI and W-9 (W-8 for foreign vendors) must match identically or it will result in delays with the approval process. Using outdated versions of the W-9 (or the incorrect W-8 form for foreign vendors) will also delay the process. The correct form for foreign vendors should be Form W-8BEN-E.
