Hi,

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

Maybe it's better the "New at Upwork". I post this there

I have exactly the same problem of Andrea M: my VIES number is not recognized and is an italian's one too. 

What can I do to get my problem solved ?

Hi!

 

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".

 

Thanks

Gabor

Hi Andrea,

 

Did you try to include the first two country letters as well?

I believe it's IT for Italy.

Regards.
