Essentially you go to  Settings > Tax Information and change your legal name to your business name.

I've already done it. However, if you check your service fee invoice, you'll see that Upwork uses your personal name not the legal name...

Yes, you are right. I was looking at the invoices not the fees. Not sure what to do about that one!

I need this invoices in order to deduct Upwork fees from my taxes.

How do you deduct Upwork fee without these invoices?

I spoke to someone in support and have been told to add the business name to my address in my account. This is how I was told to do it

 

First address box— Buisness Name: XYC

Second addres box — first line of address etc.

 

Then the rest is just as you would normally do it.

 

They say they can't edit past fee invoices but I just checked a couple and the business name was there so it looks like its fixed … maybe

Hi Maria,

 

Please note that you can enter your company name in the legal name field on the TAx Info page if you'd like your company name to be displayed on your invoices. Let me know if you're referring to another aspect of the invoices available on your end.

Hi Vladimir

 

That solution work for client invoices, we are now looking at service fee invoices (invoiced to us). The work-around I mention above fixes this.
