Hi Daniel, Raymundo and Jose,

 

Upwork is in the process of getting registered in Mexico with SAT. We'll share an update and provide Upwork's RFC number as soon as it becomes available.

 

Thank you for your patience.

Hi Valeria, 

         Thanks for the information. 


         The problem I'm still seeing is when you say: " We'll share an update and provide Upwork's RFC number as soon as it becomes available"

          This is what isn't right or legal in Mexico, you can't withhold taxes if you don't have an RFC already, why are you planning on withholding taxes starting in 2 weeks, when Upwork still doesn't have an RFC ? 
           Upwork's RFC is needed so that we (freelancers) can also inform the government who will be withholding our money.

Thanks Valeria,
In addition to Up RFC, we will need the legal company name that Up registers with SAT.

We will need to receive a CFDI on monthly basis, related to how much Up retains to us (for those freelancers that will declare Up is marking a partial retention)

Please forward my comment to the right person.

Thanks

Is this change in the Clave 2411 good for us? Or it leads us to the worst-case scenario?

Hello,

I have provided my RFC.

In the memo you put on upwork Platform you're saying that you will hold either 20 or 1 % on the earnings I make after april based on the condition of RFC

 

From my understanding If I provide RFC you're going to take 1% but this message says otherwise.

 

So which one is it?

Hi Alonso,

 

If you provide a valid RFC number we will withhold 1% of all your Upwork earnings, starting with all payments made on or after April 1, 2021. 

 

Thanks!

Hi, just to be completely sure, if I transfer my current earnings to my bank account before April 1st without adding the RFC (or with the RFC), this withhold won't affect me for now?.

Hi Marian,

 

Thanks for the question. If you don’t provide a valid RFC number we will withhold 20% of all your Upwork earnings, starting with all payments made on or after April 1, 2021.

Rught that the government is seeking us for taxes, but as we have obbligations, we should have it easy to have the right to have a social security acount where we give a part for retirement. Don't you think, Mexico-based freelancers?. With obbligations should come also rights.
