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.
