Hello All. I am in the process of creating an UpWork Agency.

First, I’m aware of the logistics and have read almost all documents and articles from UpWork on this venture.

Second, I don’t take it lightly, and am after much thought, consideration, and planning.

I’m curious how others handled the business? Did you form a LLC or official business? Run it only through UpWork and your own SSN?

Any insight to this specific topic on Agency formation would be great.

All the best,

Hi Matthew


Running agency with official business and website existence is very good, but not mandatory.

Really? Hmm. I guess it’s just my “business mindset” kicking in.

This may be a dumb question...
if the Freelancers are under my Agency, they will continue just using their own SNN?

Have any best practices / knowledge on payments to the Agency Workers for their work?

The guides explain all payments are completed OUTSIDE of UpWork. It’s a simple solution... PayPal?

Thanks for any insight.
