Hello fellow Uber Partners!
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Uber SPA Forms as well as requests for a copy of the Uber SPA Forms. So, we decided to post this Uber SPA 101 to help you with your TNVS requirements submission.
Why do I need to submit these Uber SPA Forms?
As a new Uber Partner, you’re required to upload the Uber SPA Form/s before Uber will activate your partner account. It’s very important to submit the SPA/s because you won’t be able to get activated and receive requests if you don’t submit.
From the vehicle, driver requirements and SPA/s you submitted, Uber will use these to apply for the Provisional Authority (PA) to LTFRB on your behalf.
There are 2 SPAs, which SPA do I need to submit?
For your information guys, there are two (2) SPAs.
- SPA A: SPA with Uber (Required for all TNVS Applicants)
- SPA B: SPA with Vehicle Owner (if registered Uber Partner is NOT the vehicle owner)
TIPS: Quick guide to know which SPA you need to submit (refer to the infographic):
SCENARIO 1: If the Vehicle Owner will be the one to directly register as the Uber Partner, then, you only need to submit ONE (1) SPA which is SPA A: SPA with Uber. This SPA is to authorize Uber and its legal counsel to represent you for TNVS accreditation.
SCENARIO 2: If the Uber Registered partner is NOT the Vehicle Owner, you need to submit TWO (2) SPAs. Example, the car you’ll register to Uber is owned by a friend or kamag-anak but someone else will register as a Partner. In this scenario, the Vehicle Owner needs to execute 2 SPAs— one is to authorize Uber and its legal counsel to represent you for TNVS accreditation (SPA A) and the second one to authorize the Non-Vehicle Uber Registered Partner (SPA B) to represent you in all the transactions related to Uber.
Refer to the infographic for a summarized explanation. The differences between the two Uber SPA forms are described in detail below. You can also find the download links below.
