Hi, I am a (non U.S) university student in Pakistan. I want to work as a writer/proofreader on upwork, and to get paid, I need to fill 'W8' information, but it is asking me to give 'legal name of business'. But I am not doing any business. What do I do? Please explain all the relevant tax information as well. I would be very grateful.
