Why must I fill a legal business name, which I do not have as a freelancer before I'm paid?

I have been asked to fill the W8BEN Foreign Status Certification form before I can receive payments from Upwork.

I am a freelancer and I do not have a registered company yet. What I am supposed to do?

Creating a company as an individual will not benefit me and I will not be able to cope with tax that will be levied on me here in my country
