I have an Italian VAT number but when I upload it on Upwork the result is “Not approved”.
I asked my business consultant if my VAT number is or not a VIES VAT number. Yes it is.
I verified it on the page http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/?locale=en
I enter my VAT number in both the fields VAT Number.
I enter Italy in “Member State” and “Requester Member State”
The result is Yes, valid VAT number.
I don’t understand why Upwork doesn’t approve my VAT number
I have the same problem. I have a danish one-man company, with a 8-digit VAT number (CVR). It is verified by the page http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/?locale=en
The page says it is valid. However, on Upwork, I get "Not Approved".
