If you do not currently have a GST number, you may wish to consult with a trusted tax expert or advisor. Upwork cannot provide tax advice.
To your second question, at the present time, Upwork is not registered in India and therefore will not assess the GST on transactions there. We are only collecting GST numbers from Upwork users currently. If we as a company are required to register in India in the future and start getting assessed GST, we will let you know.
As per my knowledge GST is for business accounts. I person cant have a GST number. I am confused a bit. As I have freelancer account how can I obtain GST number.
1.Gouran what if someone did not have GST number ? and he have indicated in upwor that i dont have GST number will upwork still charge GST to that freelancer ?
2.Will it be absolutely required for a freelancer to add GST
