South African non tax payer

Hi, I am new to Upwork. 

I fall below the tax bracket in South Africa. Therefore I do not have any tax information. 

Can I still get paid from Upwork?

Hi Christina,


You'll have access to your Upwork earnings as long as you complete W-8BEN form and you can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents. You may need to consult a local tax adviser about proper ways to report your Upwork income to your country's tax authorities.


Thank you!
