Hi so my name is shirly Rohine Singh from Trinidad in the Caribbean ....and I got my first job...completed it but is being asked for a VAT CODE.....I need help urgently can anyone advice if you are in a caribbean country and have gone through the process...or is this code a worldwide vat code that is not locally granted ....need help


Hi Shirly,


A real client will never ask you to give them money to start working, cash a check for them, work for free, or provide your personal information. In addition, communicating outside of Upwork before a contract begins is a violation of the Terms of Service, and a client suggesting this is a typical red flag. You may open yourself up to scams or fraud and lose Upwork Payment Protection.


Whenever you encounter these situations, please report them using the available flagging options so the team can investigate further. Please take some time to read through this article for more information on how you can stay safe on Upwork.

I am excited to move forward to new endeavors.  My end game is to create a new business for Event Coordination and Promotion in Colorado.  I will need to supplement my income as I move away from corporate employment and move into freelance work and ownership.


I am highly skilled in Communications, Client Relations, Account Management, and Space Design.  I strive for greatness in all things I do and believe that my creativity and desire to entertain can no longer be stifled.  


As I work hard to create a new tomorrow for me I will work hard for any company that requires my level of skill and offers an at home flexible schedule.


I look forward to learning how to help clients with specific short term needs around my skill sets.

I'm rooting for your success Kimberly. I know you will do great things. If I come across a client who needs Client Relations, Account Management and Space Design., I'll be sure to connect them with you. 🙂
