Paying freelancers as a client using my Upwork balance

I earn money as a freelancer on Upwork. I also hire freelancers as a client sometimes.

Is there any way to pay my hired freelancers from the balance I earn as a freelancer? Thanks!

They've said no for legal reasons.

Hey Jenifer,

Can you explain the legal reasons?

Thanks.

Hi Attiq and Vincent,

 

Jennifer is correct. Freelancer, client and agency accounts had to be separated a while ago for legal, tax and reporting reasons. You will need to add a valid payment method to your client account in order to pay your freelancers.

 

Thank you.
