Hi René, 

 

I am french auto-entrepreneur and got a firts project on upwork.

I asked for a VAT number to my SIE as adviced even thought I'm not entitled to charge VAT.

I gave me a number with the format FRxxXXXXXXXXX

FR and 11 digits. Upwork doesn't recognise this format... Have you got any idea of what went wrong?

Many Thanks

Hi Abdelkamel,

 

That's a good answer, but it is against the forum rules to write in any language other than English, which is Upwork's lingua franca.

This is the right format for the VAT number. Try to speak with the CS.

Hi Laeticia,

 

Please make sure that you submit a number that can be verified by the VIES database, and try adding it again after confirming. Let us know if it verifies there but not on Upwork.

Hi, 

 

I have nearly the same question but for the upwork fees. Do they count into my income or do I deduct them and declare only the received money on my bankaccount?

 

Also do you emit invoices for upwork or for the specific client?

 

Thanks a lot in advance!
