Hi Crystal, 

 

I replied to your same post last week. Please refrain from reposting the same as this is considered spam and is a violation of the Upwork Community Guidelines.

Hi Avery, 

 

Had I seen or received your response I would not have posted here. Thanks for your response here just the same. 

Hello Dear Avery and Community, I am new to this site. I've recently set up my profile and trying to find out about the Payment Roll System and Taxation. I’ve found the following information on the website under UPWORK PAYROLL AGREEMENT in the second paragraph; "Upwork Payroll is currently only available for Freelancers who will work in the United States. Requests regarding international employment and associated fees can be addressed on a case-by-case basis by contacting upworkpayroll@upwork.com.” Does it mean I am not eligible for the work as I am based in Hungary? I’ve seen many other Freelancers who are living in Hungary or elsewhere in Europe. The other question I have is related to Tax. I have my entrepreneurial license which covers the entire taxation such as income tax, social insurance and state. So, will I need to pay more tax or international tax or something?

Payroll is for employment. You are looking to work as a freelancer, like most people here, not as an employee, so anything that mentions payroll does not apply to you.

Your Upwork income will count as self-employed earnings. Just like any other money you make from your self-employed activities. You may want to discuss it with a tax adviser in your country how that works in your specific system.
