Hi Tim,

 

There aren't any limitations on Upwork related to the scenario you proposed but we can't provide legal advice and would suggest consulting a local legal advisor. Thank you.

Thanks Vladimir,

Is Upwork the employer, Does Upwork pay the income tax to the country ?

Is there any legal documentation about this on Upwork you can point me to ?

I would like to check that it's lawful for me to hire using this platform.

Kind regards

Hi Tim,

 

Please refer to Section 2 of the User Agreement to find out more about the role of Upwork and further talk to your tax adviser about the best ways you could report your Upwork expenses.

 

Thank you.
