we have several projects each month including some milestones per project. Upwork issues for each milestone 3-4 Invoices/Receipts, so at the end of a month we have heaps of invoices. Do you have any recommendation which one to use for accounting purposes, since it really is a pain to figure that out?
The last recommendation was just to use the invoices with the name of the Freelancer on it, but there is no fee on the receipt.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Roman,


Sorry about the delayed response. In your Transactions report you'll be able to access the invoice for the payment made to the freelancer. It will have the freelancer's name and information in the "From" section and your information in the "Bill To" section. There will be a separate receipt for the processing fee with Upwork's information on it. You can use both of those for your reporting purposes. Please see this help article for detailed information about fixed-price transactions, invoices and receipts and feel free to further consult with your local legal or tax adviser.
