Hey Ricardo! Smiley Happy 

Yes, the VAT number is the NIF, but to be valid in Upwork you need to have an activity open as a professional (nas Finanças). If you have professional activity open and your VAT is still not accepted at Upwork, you need to call the Finanças. Ask them to associate your activity with intra-communities sales/work. It's free and this doesn't change anything on your work or activity. It's only a code/option we need to have associated with our activity.

After that, try to confirm if it's everything ok with your VAT/NIF number in the European Official Website: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/ if you have a "green/ok result", your VAT number is ready to be accepted at Upwork platform Smiley Happy

 

Hope this info helps you!

Hi Ricardo,

 

Please, make sure that you submit a number that can be verified by the VIES database. Let us know if it verifies there but still doesn't on Upwork.

Thanks.

Wow, Krystel! Amazing support. UpWork should somehow compensate you for these contributions Smiley Happy

Hi Gisela,

 

I just moved to Lisbon. I haven't found any upWork community here in Portugal. So I created this group to build a community about upWork in Portugal. **Edited for Community Guidelines** I will be happy if you join this gorup and maybe we can arrange upwork meetup sometime. 

 

Btw, are you going to join "UpWork huddle in Lisbon" ? 

 

Cheers!

Huzaifa

Hello All,

 

I moved to Portugal few months back. I haven't found any upWork community here in Portugal. So I created this group to build a community about upWork in Portugal. **Edited for Community Guidelines** I would be happy if you join this gorup and maybe we can arrange meetup sometime. 

 

Btw, are you going to join "UpWork huddle in Lisbon" which will be held in 8th November in Lisbon? 

 

Cheers!

Hello everyone,

I'm from Ponte de Lima and I live in Costa da Caparica.

I started working this month on upwork and am very confused by it of the payments.

 

I have to pass the invoices to the clients and not to the upwork ok, but can not I just spend on the amount I received? (How do I add upwork fees to expenses? With the simplified scheme I thought expenses were automatically 25%).

 

I am exempt from VAT because I have no income greater than 10k, but because I am an invoice abroad do I have to declare VAT?
