Hello, I am a fairly new to Upwork, and I have started to get jobs, and money with it
I have linked my Upwork account to PayPal account and I know I can transfer money from Up to PP.
My question is how do I pay taxes for income made thru PayPal, in this case, Upwork jobs?
How to get that money here in Serbia so I can use outside of PayPal?
I have read a lot of the forum posts, blogs watch Milan Trbojevic videos and others and I am still confused.
How other freelancers from Serbia deal with this issue? Could you most awesome people on earth give me some advice or point me in which direction to go?
Thanks A LOT, any help on this subject will be most appreciated!
Have you checked Milan's Facebook group and looked at the videos and other information shared there? Please do review the information shared on his blog and group, and feel free to send him a message if you have a specific question as we can't advise you on this subject here in the Community. What I can say, being a freelancer myself, is that you can withdraw money to your individual bank account and each time consult your local tax office about the amount due to your income, which is not negligible to say the least. The other option is to register your business, choosing one of the forms Milan discussed in the webinar hosted for Upwork freelancers, whose recording you can find in the Facebook group. We discussed and outlined the two best possible forms based on the freelancer's income, one of which is related to paying a flat monthly fee. Feel free to pm me for more details after you've reviewed the webinar recording.
I am absolute beginner at Upwork. I didn`t activate my profile yet. I saw that you mentioned Milan Trbojevic group at Facebook. Can you, please, be more specific because I couldn`t find it.
I have also made an account on PayPal and I was able to add bank account so I could withdraw funds to my visa card. The fee is 5 dollars per withdrawal, at least for my bank.
It is very simple.
The only thing you have to find in your PP is:
- Withdraw funds (left side of the screen)
- Add a bank account or card (like ERSTE Visa gift card - if you visit the bank you can get it in 10 minutes!)
- Enjoy working on UPWORK!
