Business owner

Is that a problem if I work as a person that actually don't have a business itself, so i can't fill "Legal Name of Business" ?

Hi Nichita,

Could you please clarify where you are trying to ender information regarding a business? Please note that when completing your profile, you should make sure you provide accurate and truthful information regarding your identity, skills, location and experience.


When i go to "get paid" section, as non-U.S. person, i have to provide my W-8BEN tax information.

But here i have to provide also my "Legal Name of Business".

The problem is that actually i'm working without owning business, so i don't really know how to continue.


Thanks for clarifying. In that field you may put your legal name as it appears in your passport or any other legal documents.
