Marion,

 

You can get a VAT number if you apply to your local SIE (services des impôts des entreprises).

 

ETA: Have a look at this thread and René K's post:

Thanks. I've asked my SIE but they told me that i can't have one because i'm a micro entrepreneur.. I'll have a look at the link you've added.

 You need to send them this: Numéro de TVA intracommunautaire

Thanks. I've asked for it (TVA intracommunautaire) but because I'm a micro entrepreneur they told me I can't have one... I think other french are in the same situation. I'll try to send them an email again with the info from UPWORK.

Don't send them anything from Upwork. Send them the link I shared below.

I am a French autoentrepreneur too, and my SIE sent me a VAT number. Even if you do not supports VAT, you can have a number when you work with clients inside or outside Europe.

 

I have tryed to enter my VAT number in my Upwork account but a message appears saying that the format is wrong. Do you have any tip?

Gaelle, did you manage to enter your VAT (intracommunautaire) number?

Hello,

I am not sure to have succeeded in entering my VAT number. I tried 3 times,
in different ways and I received an email saying that my number is not
valid. On my profile I can see the last number I tried to enter, which is
without "FR" at the begining (it looked not to be accepted when I tried to
enter it, despite it is supposed to be part of my VAT number)... and the
status is not approved.

What should I do?
Thank you for your help.

Hello @Mary, I have the exact same problem as Gaelle. My VAT number starts with "FR" and UpWork says the format is not valid.
