you do not need to submit W9 to your payer in another country unless the payer is a USresident.you also do not need a 1099 from the payer.you need a receipt of wire transfer for your income transferred into your acct in US to prove your gross self employment income to the IRS.you just need to file Sch C/ C-ez or Sch SE.
The payer has no obligation to send a copy of 1099/1096 to the IRS.so you ned to file return without a 1099. Please contact the IRS for more info in detail.
