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)?
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.
