I could use some help setting up op my VAT number. I've got my own freelance company in The Netherlands. It's called SIX and I got a corresponding VAT number. Now that I created an account on Upwork, I used my real name, instead of SIX. And my working VAT number won't get approved. I figured it's because of the name, or am I wrong? I can't change my name to my company's name though, because of the policy of Upwork. So now the question remains, how do I get my VAT number approved?

I would love to hear some solutions.

Kind regards,
