The name of the agency and a bank account


Hello! My name is Denis.

I created an agency on Upwork. The last step is seting payment details. I have lerned that for a freelancer it is important to be listed as an account holder or authorized signer on your bank account. So if I am an Agency and would like to get payments on my corporate account should the name of my Agency on Upwork be the same with its name on the invoise I send to the client . 


Thank you

Best regards.

Will be happy to get help with this question.

I have similar question. I plan to create agency soon. Can agency name which I plan to use as my brand name be different from name on bank account?




Hi Soham Adarshkumar,


Yes, that shouldn't be the problem. You can connect a bank account to 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.


If there is any mismatch between the bank account name and Agency account name, Agency owner may be asked to clear the mismatch. In this case, they will be asked to provide documents that will prove that they own the bank account.
