I need to change the name of my 'agency' and actually dont understand the difference between 'agency' and 'client'. I still own the agency but we have rebranded and need to change the name and profile. Pls advise 

Thanks Sheila

Hi Sheila,

The client aspect of your account is the one through which you would post jobs on Upwork and hire freelancers for those jobs.

The agency aspect of your account would be linked to your personal freelancer account, and is the company (agency) through which you work with other freelancers on assignments that clients on Upwork have awarded you.

You can change your agency name by following the information provided here. Please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.

1. Click the Name of your agency on the drop down (where your picture on your top right)

2. Click the pencil icon near your agency name.

I want to rebrand my agency and change its name and logo as well as maybe tax information.
Can I do that?

Hi Manish,


Yes, you can change this by going to Find Work > Agency Profile and clicking on the pencil icon for each section you wish to update. On the other hand, you can update your Tax Information in Settings > Tax Information.

I have the same question as Manish has.

On clicking at pencil icon I can only able to edit First & Last name, there is no option to edit User ID (Company Name). Plerase check attached screenshot.

Hi Vikram,


You can edit your agency name from the agency profile page, not from the Settings. You can check this screenshot for reference.


Thank you.
