I've been on Upwork for a few weeks now. Everything on my identification end of things has been approved except for my GST\HST ID. It says: "legal name on the W8BEN form matches your registered name on your tax ID.
I am set up as a Canadian sole proprietorship. I've been adding my 9 digit business number only to send a message a couple days later that it does not match the tax payers name. Should I put my business operating name in which would match the number?

What number are you using? Your MBL business number from your your sole proprietorship registration or your GST/HST business number that ends in RT0001?
I had the same problem at first because I was using the wrong number.

thanks for your input, really appreciate it. I used my gst\hst number. I used just the 9 digits as there was not room for the RT0001. Were you able to solve the problem?
