Invoices for Freelancers

All billings on your Transaction Report have official invoices that can be downloaded or printed.

The invoices include the Upwork service fee. If an invoice spans two fee tier, it will show a blended, effective fee rate. For example, if an invoice were for $200 with $100 at the 20% fee tier and $100 at the 10% fee tier, the blended rate would be a 15% fee.

To get an official invoice:

  1. Reports > Transaction History
  2. Find the item you need
  3. Click the Reference ID, and then click View Invoice

To bulk download invoices and receipts:

  1. Go to Reports > Transaction History
  2. It will show a 30-day window by default -- the maximum timeframe for bulk download is one month
  3. Click the Download Invoices button

Invoices include your client's company name, company owner's name, and company contact address. If they have a VAT number, that will be included, too. Your name will always be included. You may also choose to provide an invoicing address, but this is optional.

You can add or update your invoice address in the Accounts menu > Settings > My Info.

Invoices are for record-keeping purposes only. The finance system charges a client's billing method automatically whenever the client has a balance due.

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.
