Uk Tax payer but based in Canada


I wonder if anyone can help me...

I am new to Upwork - I live in Canada but I want to be paid into my UK bank account as I don't have the right to work in Canada at the moment. 

I put my location as Canada as my phone number is a Canadian one and if I put my location as the UK I wasn't able to receive the automated text message Upwork send to confirm your identity.

i am now being asked to add Canadian tax information but I want to be taxed in the UK. I can't seem to be able to change my location to the UK on my account. 


Can anyone help with how to do this or do I need to set up a whole new account?

Hi Hannah,


Please know that your address needs to reflect your physical location. Regardless of where you are living, you are responsible to comply with any work authorization requirements you may have. I would advise you to consult a tax professional regarding your specific situation as Upwork cannot provide tax advice.


Also, please note that creating multiple accounts is a violation of the Terms of Service.
