Does anyone know if one needs to own a company in order to start using Upwork?
I am interested in starting using upwork on my free time as an extra income and want to make sure that's possible before I do so. I do not own a company or have a business account.
Any feedback is much appreciated!
You don't need to "own a company."
Most freelancers on Upwork are simply individuals.
Some have formed LLCs or filed articles of incorporation or otherwise done something to legally establish a one-person "company."
Most have not done any of those things, and Upwork doesn't require it.
Nor do you need a company or business account. Most freelancers here use their own personal bank accounts or PayPal accounts or similar to withdraw funds.
