Freelancing without owning a company

Hello guys,

 

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!

 

Cheers,

Alex

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.
