Hi Rajiv,

 

You may enter your PAN or Aadhaar number in the “Tax Info” section under “Settings.”

Hi Sahil,

 

I'd like to follow-up on your question earlier.  Yes, you can use your legal business name on your W-8BEN Form and PAN Card. Thanks!

I am a director of private limited company and want to work as an individual freelancer on upwork but I want all payment to be done in my company account?
My company name is different than my legal name.
Now few things i want to ask is :
1. Can I fill Company Pan no. In Pan no. Field?
2. Can I use my company current account to receive payment, if yes then what to write in first name, last name and name on account?
3. What to write in legal name of W-8BEN? Should I write my name or company name?

Hello there,

 

If you can explain the WHT calculation, it will be great. Suddenly find the deduction under WHT. 

 

Please explain. 

 

Regards

Hi Joy Esther,

 

The amount of tax we are required to withhold is dependent upon whether or not you have a valid PAN or Aadhaar number on file with Upwork:  

  • For Upwork users that have a PAN or Aadhaar on file, we are required to withhold 0.75% of client payments to users. 

  • For Upwork users that do not have a PAN or Aadhaar on file, we are required to withhold 5.0% of client payments to users.

The withholding tax is calculated based on the gross amount that the user invoices their client, so it is calculated prior to freelancer service fees or any other fees that may reduce the amount credited to the user’s account. You can check this help article for more information. 

 

Thank you!
