Upwork should pay that from fees/earning that they collect from us. They planning to charge extra 1% apart from regular cut ?

I've surrendered (filed REG-16) my GSTIN and it's under process for months now. Do I still have to add it in Upwork?

Hi Soumyadip,

 

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. Thank you.

Hi all,

 

Please note that I've closed the previous main thread discussing the Indian Goods and Services Tax (GST) and moved recent posts to this thread, in order to streamline the discussion and more efficiently communicate the information related to the recent update.

 

Hi Pradeep,

 

Thanks for your questions. Upwork is currently working with its tax advisors to determine under what circumstances GST must be collected on transactions between Upwork and its users. If it is determined that tax is to be collected, we will contact our users in India to provide an explanation of what transactions will be assessed and the date any collection will start. Since we cannot offer tax advice, we suggest you reach out to a trusted tax expert or advisor to learn more about GST and your tax obligations.

Any professionals or business entity with valid PAN can register for GST. As per new rule, you must register for GST if your gross receipt is above ₹20L.

Respected Madam,

 

I understand there are rules of GST in india, but GST is not appilcable to me, also Upwork charges a good %age as fees and also withdrawing also is being charged my request to you is to reconsider the 1% GST charge which will be another loss for us since, as of now GST is not applicable for me, there are other ecommerce sites like amazon, ebay which only apply GST on goods under GST category, I think it will be double implication of GST and will be unfair to charge so.

 

Sincerely,

Vikrant
