Hi Keval,

 

I would like to clarify that we cannot refund the charges prior to adding PAN. 1% charge will only be applied after you have added your PAN. For the 5% charges, I would recommend reaching out to a local expert that can advise you accordingly on how you claim them back. Thank you.

Thank you Goran.

I just got off the call with my accountant, he said that I will need a reference of some kind - preferrably tds certificate so that gov can map who has tax withheld.

Hi Keval,

 

You can download your invoice at any time by going to Reports > Transaction > click on the Ref ID > View Invoice. Thank you.

Hi Team,

 

I still did not see any deposit of TDS in my Traces for last quater. Will it take more time to resolve the issue ?

 

Thanks,

My TDS details for Quarter October–December 2020 have not been reflected in my Form 16A yet. As I received an email on 13th March from Upwork that it will be done around April month. Also, can you please let me know when will TDS details for Quarter January–March 2021 be reflected in Form 16A?

 

I can understand that this is the first time Upwork is handling TDS so it got delayed. I just wanted to know the status.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Vivek,

 

We had hoped to have the tax information available by the expected date, but delays have occurred due to unclear filing instructions and limited guidance from our accounting partners in India. We know this information is critical to you and we are sorry for the delay. We will update you via email as soon as we know more. Please know that all funds withheld have been remitted to the Indian government; the delay has been in the reporting and allocation of those funds on an individual-user basis. We should have this matter resolved before the end of the Indian tax year, so you should not incur any penalties from the delayed issuance of the form 16As.

Will Upwork provide Form 16 for Indian Tax filing? If yes, how do you get it?

Hi Aradhana,

 

Rest assured, we will issue Form 16A to you. However, delays have occurred due to unclear filing instructions and limited guidance from our accounting partners in India. We know this information is critical to you and we are sorry for the delay. We will update you via email as soon as we know more. Please know that all funds withheld have been remitted to the Indian government; the delay has been in the reporting and allocation of those funds on an individual-user basis.

 

Thank you.

Thank You! This was very helpful Smiley Happy

 

Just to clarify one more point, it is an annual document that will be issued only once, right? I read another blog post where it was mentioned about quarterly 16A, so got confused.

 

Regards,

Aradhana D

Hi Aradhana,

 

The 16A form is issued each quarter. I suggest checking out this help article to learn more about this. I'll also merge your post in the announcement thread where you can find more information.

 

Thank you.
