You should be able to add your VAT number to the Upwork account as long as it's in the same format as validated on the VIES website. While some freelancers use VAT for a registered business they own, others add their individual VAT number. Please, check with a local tax advisor on the type and format of your VAT number.
It's not mandatory to enter a vat number, but Upwork will add VAT to their commission.
Are you sure your TAX number is for VAT purposes? Where I live you cannot get a VAT ID without creating a company.
I am running into the same problem here (I am also from Slovenia). Can you tell me if you were able to solve it and how? Is registering to DDV (VAT) register and reporting the income every month enough, or any other actions are needed?
One question about the Vies Site, it asks for a "Requester member state" and VAT number.
Is Upwork the requester? how does this work?
I'm new to upwork, so sorry if its a dumb question.
