I'm a freelancer and I don't own a company. How do i withdraw money?

Hi, I'm from India and I was looking to do freelancing. However, if I don't own any business so how do I withdraw the money from Upwork Account? My question is not regarding if I can withdraw from direct Bank Transfer or Paypay.
Since I don't own have any company and I'm a freelancer, How do I get rid of W-8BEN?
If i don't own any business and I don't have any "Legal Name of Business" I won't be able to withdraw the amount?

Hi Harsh,

 

You can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents to complete the W-8BEN, which purpose is to confirm you're not a US taxpayer.

 

Let us know if the issue persists.

 

Thank you.

Hello Harsh, 

 

For Indian Freelancers who are working as individual business owners, you name as per PAN card is your legal business name. I hope this will help you address the issue.
