Hello,
I'm a freelance writer, but having started this journey shortly and having not yet received a job, I do not own the VAT number.
Is it necessary for who is European (Italian)?

Hi Clara, welcome to Upwork.

 

having a VAT number is not a requirement and you can work on Upwork without it. In order to start bidding successfully and winning jobs on Upwork check the information and advice shared in these freelancer resources.

Hi Vladimir, 
So can I be quiet about receiving payments while not having a VAT number?

Hi Clara,

 

Yes, you can work and get paid without adding a VAT number, but do note that in that case Upwork will be obligated to apply a VAT charge on the its service fee and any other Upwork-related payment (membership fee, buying additional Connects) and remit the fee to your government. Please check this Help article for more information.
