Australian Freelancer



I searched in the forum but I haven’t found an answer for that.


How do I declare myUpwork income to ATO? I have ABN number, and at the moment I am transferring the money from Upwork to my PayPal account. Can I just transfer it to my Bank account, or how I pay the 10% GST on it?

Hi Yaron,

You will need to consult with a local tax advisor so that you will be properly guided on the procedure in declaring your taxes as tax laws vary for every country. Thanks.
