hi from Just Answer. I'm PDtax. Your requested expert is not available. I can assist.
As long as the foreign contractor is not a U.S. person and the services are wholly performed outside the U.S., then no Form 1099 is required and no withholding is required.
The foreign recipient of your payment can confirm their status by completing and sending to you a Form W-8BEN for your files.
Thanks for asking your question at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
