Hi, I am a freelancer on upwork and my account email address is *** Edited for Community Guidelines ***

In the Get Paid section, I have given my correct bank details but it is showing "Inactive". Why?

These are 5 days gone and I still see  "Inactive"  my Payment Method as I have entered correct bank details.  Please answer.

Hello Jamshaid,

 

I just checked your account and I could see that you still haven't completed your Tax Information. Please fill up all the fields in the tax information form so that your payment method can become active after 3 days. Thank you.

But I am not running a company. I am an individual freelancer. All my other friends did not provide any tax information but they are running their upwork account successfully.

If I do not have a company then how can I provide my tax info ? or legal business name etc ?

Hi Jamshaid, 


You will only need to supply your legal name and address on your tax information page/W8BEN form so that the system knows that you're not a U.S. citizen.

Hi Oshin,

 

Can you please complete the W-8BEN form under Settings> Tax Info, which purpose is to confirm you're not a US taxpayer. You can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents. 

 

Let us know if the issue persists.

 

Thank you.
