 It takes literally minutes. You can not withdraw any earnings without doing so, so it's best to complete your W8BEN asap.

Hi Iro, 


Since you are in a country that is part of the EU, you are required to enter your VAT information otherwise we will collect additional taxes. You can add your VAT information anytime. If you do not have a VAT number it's better to contact a tax advisor so that you will be guided accordingly. Upwork charges the country-specific Value Added Tax (VAT) to freelancers and agencies in the European Union (EU), unless you provide a valid VAT number. VAT will be assessed on services provided by us, not on services you provide your clients.
