EIN required for foreing entity

EIN required for foreing entity

On page 8 of the instrcuctions for Form W-8BEN-E, it states a US TIN is required if the payee is claiming income tax treaty benefits AND they have NOT provided a foreign TIN on line 9b.  Is an EIN not necessary if a foreign TIN is provided?  This is regular income from a service provided in the US from a company located and paid in Australia.  All other literature indicates an EIN is required for this type of income for a foreign entity.  Has anyone else come up against this?
