Managing Financial Information

    The Financial Info section in your Fixxbook profile allows you to manage pertinent financial forms and information. This is beneficial because you do not have to send physical copies of this information to your ServiceChannel clients, as those who require it can review it securely in your Fixxbook profile.

    Note: We recommend that you complete all 3 sections, as ServiceChannel clients may require you to complete them for payment processing.

    How To Access Financial Info:

    1. In the top navigation bar, hover over Fixxbook profile. A drop-down menu appears.
    2. Click Financial Info. The W-9 form appears, and the financial forms are listed in the left navigation menu. 
      Access Financial Info

    There are 3 financial forms:

    • W-9 Form: Completing this IRS form in Fixxbook allows your ServiceChannel clients to review and print it at anytime. ServiceChannel clients may print a copy of the form in the official IRS format, as needed, without you mailing or faxing a physical, paper form.
      Note: This form is only available for contractors performing work in the United States.
    • Remittance: As your Fixxbook profile is linked to Service Automation, your remittance address is pulled from your Fixxbook profile into Service Automation invoices. You may manage which remittance address appears on those invoices.
    • Sales Tax: Entering and managing this data alerts your clients that you collect and remit taxes, and that your tax information is compliant with state and local laws.
