It's not true! I didn't entered a VAT number ( because i don't have VAT number) and still i'm waiting for the VAT in the reports but there is no VAT charge at all. So can someone explain me how the VAT work inside the reports? Upwork says that we have to pay VAT on the fees but it's the 3rd of december and i can't see any VAT in my earning fees.

Hi Claudia,

 

We've started rolling this feature out yesterday and you should start seeing the VAT charges soon.

The VAT will appear on your next invoice for Upwork's service fees. Upwork does not apply VAT to your earnings up to now.

Hello,

 

I didn't understand one thing. The money for this VAT tax are going to... ? Maybe USA or Norway government?

Who knows? Norway is closely affiliated, but not actually an EU member state.

 

My VAT number (which is NOT a VAT number) has been refused - not surprisingly, as in France I do not charge service VAT nor do I pay VAT for those services rendered to the government.

 

I (and many others) just have to suck up the extra that Upwork has decided to tack on to its charges.

The VAT applied to the service fee finally goes to the country where the freelancer lives, in your case to Bulgaria. I do not know if Upwork will have to pay taxes for their income in Norway. Probabely there is an advantage for Upwork to chose a non EU member for their European office.
