I hope you all are doing well.

I have a partner in India. We want to create an agency based in India. However, I want to join that agency by being in the USA. My questions are;

1. Is it possible to have freelancers from more than one country in the same agency?

2. If yes, can I directly transfer all my payments to the agency account (India)?

3. How will it affect my personal tax return and company tax return in India? 


Thank you.

Hi Darshan,


Thank you for reaching out to us with these questions. 


Yes, it is possible to have freelancers from more than one country under the same agency. Please note that Non-U.S. agency members, including business managers, will not be able to submit proposals for jobs with location requirements. Here's a help article with more information for you!


Yes, you can withdraw your funds to the agency account that's in the owner's name or is a joint account that has the owner's name on it as a withdrawal method.


Unfortunately, we aren't able to advise you about reporting your Upwork income for taxes in your country. Please, discuss your options with a local tax advisor.


Thank you.
