In "My Jobs" section is said that "" All contractors are required to complete a W9 or a W-8BEN form in order to withdraw money.
I tried to fill out W-8BEN form, but there is required VAT number. I have no VAT number and prefer Upwork to deduct VAT. What should I do to be able to work through the platform of Upwork, without a valid VAT number. Is there such option?
Upwork does not require freelancers to have a VAT number to work on our platform. If you do not enter a VAT number, a VAT charge will be added to Upwork’s service fee, premium memberships and additional Connects, and appear on the invoice sent by Upwork to you (based on the VAT amount applicable to the country listed on your profile).
Thank you for your answer.
I don't have a VAT number and I like work with upwork but i don't want to have problem with the tax agency. is there anything else that i should do to work without evading taxes?
currently i live in ireland
