Hi Rohit,

 

1. Under the legal name of business you can also add your full legal name and submit your W-8BEN form. 

2. To learn more about our available payment methods check out this Help Article. Feel free to add the one that is the best fit for you.
If you have any additional questions, let me know. Thank you.

Hi Rohit,

 

If you do not currently have a GST number, you may wish to consult with a trusted tax expert or advisor. Upwork cannot provide tax advice. Thank you.
