This put's so much pressure on freelancer's.
Already we are losing jobs due to COVID-19 on top of that every 10$ we earn upwork keeps 2$ and then 1.5$ for only 10 connects then 0.99$ to transefer to the bank
and now 0.75% which is supposed to increase to 1% in next year.
I agree that you're following just the guidlines of Govt. Atleast you can do it to wave off the transfer cost or lower the 20% comission. Providing free connects will not solve the problem as you might have already gussed then people will use it carelessly. But please don't put more pressure on us. It's not just about just 0.75% it's about the edge upto which we are loaded. you have the data with you, you know how many of us earn's (actuall bank trnsferred) more then 200$ per month . Please do somthing.
We don’t plan to adjust fees. Upwork fees help to cover the costs of acquiring new clients and providing services like payment protection, customer support, and platform infrastructure. However, I will share your feedback with the team for consideration.
Hi, I have checked the Tax Identification section in my profile and have confirmed my address. My Aadhar number was already saved. Can you please tell me how do I know that I've successfully completed my Tax Information update for TDS?
I checked and it appears you've successfully added your tax info details. We can confirm if the number you've added is in the correct format, which is the case here, and you can check to ensure the information entered there is current.
Hi Vladimir, thanks for your reply. I want to add that it's my PAN card number that was already saved before. And the PAN number that's saved is correct. Should I leave it be or replace it with my Aadhar number to complete the Indian TDS withholding process?
Hi Pankaj and Rahul,
If you've managed to add either your PAN or Aadhaar number successfully, i.e. it was accepted and you didn't get an error message, you're good to go. We don't display nor send a notification when tax info details are added. No further action on the Upwork platform is necessary and any validation needs to be done by the account owner.
