How Do I Change the Name on My Account to My LLC's Name?

Although I registered with Upwork a while ago, I just started looking for jobs in January. It's gone so well that I am now registering an LLC in order to provide legal protections for my freelancing business. I see where I can change my bank account to the LLC account and provide the EIN rather than my SS#, and also change my address to that of the LLC. But Can I change the name which appears on my account to that of the LLC? I am fine with having my user name remain the same, as I will be working under the LLC.

Hi Hillora,

 

Your profile name can be a nickname or variation, as long as it follows our name change guidelines.

 

Thanks!

No, Your profile name has to be your own legal name (or a common version, such as Sam for Samuel or Bobby for Robert), it can't be the name of a company.
