Tax & GST implication of earnings from Upwork or other such service providers
I am residing in India and registered as a freelancer on this platform and bill my clients (some based in India & some abroad) in USD.
Upwork charges service charge on the total invoice amount and is also required to deduct TDS. Upwork is depositing this TDS with govt of India under section 194-O.
I would like to understand if I am required to pay GST in this case? If yes, then does the 20Lac exemption limit is applicable for me? Can this income from Upwork be counted as export of service or will it be e-commerce?
If you are already registered then you have to comply with all GST provisions.
