Exempt of VAT taxes in Spain

Hello, I'm exempt of I.V.A. or I.G.I.C. (Canary Islands,Spain) taxes so I don't need a VAT number to bill for other countries. But I've to specify I'm exempt of I.V.A or I.G.I.C in my invoices. So I've to questions:

 

1. How does affect me not being registered for a VAT number in upwork?

2.How does the invoices thing works in upwork? Do I send the invoices to customers or... ?

 

Thank you!

Hi Taysa,

 

All billings on your Transaction Report have official invoices that can be downloaded or printed. You can learn more about invoices here. Upwork doesn't require anyone to have a VAT number but we will charge VAT on services to freelancers within the EU unless they provide a valid VAT number. You can see how that looks like here. For any information on complying with your local tax laws please consult with a tax advisor or expert as Upwork cannot provide tax advice.

 

Thanks!

Thank you for you reply. But if I don't pay VAT in my country because I'm
exempt why do you charge me VAT?
