Vouchers commercial invoice FAQ

A commercial invoice is a document that clearly indicates the amount spent on a particular Voucher campaign during a given month. Commercial invoices aren’t available in all locations.

Where available, Uber for Business will send a monthly commercial invoice for rides and Uber Eats vouchers. The commercial invoice does not include tax information.

Commercial invoices provide documentation to help you:

  • Track spend by voucher campaign
  • Bill or reimburse third parties
  • Manage internal cost center spend

Commercial invoices are:

  • Based on month dates, not voucher campaign dates. For example, if a voucher campaign runs from July 1 to August 15, you’ll receive an invoice for July and one for August.
  • Sent separately for each voucher campaign. If you have multiple voucher campaigns running at the same time, you’ll receive a commercial invoice for each campaign.

Who receives commercial invoices?

Commercial invoices will be emailed at the end of the month to the Uber Program Administrators who have receipt forwarding enabled.

Why isn’t tax information included?

The commercial invoice will include sales tax information only for US-based organizations, but doesn’t include any other tax information.

A commercial invoice only details the sale of the voucher. The sale of a voucher isn’t taxed because it’s considered a transfer of cash or funding mechanism. If no tax is charged, then no tax is claimed and, therefore, not listed on the invoice. Sales tax is included in the US because the tax isn’t claimed by any party involved in the transaction.

Since the rider requests and receives transportation, Uber sends a trip-level tax invoice on behalf of drivers to riders directly. Trip-level details aren’t available to your organization because your company didn’t receive the service.
