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?

Hey! I'm new to the upwork space and I am still a bit confused. Will I have difficulty withdrawing my money from upwork if I don't have a gstin? Or will they be charging me 1% of my earnings as gst and then let me withdraw money?

Hi Ananya,

 

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.

1% of 6K USD  = 60 USD
