Is an agency account separate from the owners Freelancer profile or does it replace it?

Hello all.

I am researching the Upwork agency model to see if it is a good fit for my business.
It's early day's, and I'd like to know if an owner's freelance profile is replaced/no longer accessible after an agency has been set up? Or is it possible to remain working as an individual and an agency?


Hi Darren,


Upwork is currently set up so that you must create a freelancer account to create an agency. You can check this help article for more information. You might also want to read this article to help you decide if creating an agency would be a good option for you.
