IBM Business Partner Solution Solution Providers for Power Systems

Ordering/fulfillment information

Follow normal ordering procedures.

Additional information/condition

How to Claim for all countries except Italy:
IBM Business Partner Solution Providers must send a valid Claim Form (“Appendix 2: IBM 2015 Power Trade In Cash Back Program Claim Form” via email to redemption@sk.ibm.com with the required documentation no later than 60 days after the end of the quarter when the customer purchase order took place.

Required Documentation:
1.  As proof of acquisition, copies of invoices or lease documentation in the form of a legible copy of the invoice(s) listing the eligible IBM Power Systems.

2. For confirmation that a new IBM Power Systems Server has been purchased according to the terms and conditions and during the valid dates of this promotion, a copy of the “Appendix 1: IBM 2015 Power Trade In Cash Back Program – End User Self Certification Form” completed and signed by an End User Customer senior-level executive, such as the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Information Officer, Chief Financial Officer, or equivalent senior-level executive.

IBM reserves the right to request additional information concerning the relevant transactions at any time and to reject requests which the eligibility criteria is not met.

Any “Cash Back Request” forms lost or misdirected by the Postal Service or other delivery service are not the responsibility of IBM.

Incentive earned will be paid by IBM to the IBM Solution Provider firm's bank account by electronic transfer within 6-8 weeks of receiving your complete and accurate documentation. IBM Business Partner Solution Providers must pass on the end user customer rebate to their respective end user customers.

IBM takes the view that the payment by IBM is not regarded as a consideration for a service, supplied by you to IBM. Therefore, IBM does not require an invoice. If you however determine this payment is a consideration for a service supplied by you and therefore you would be required to invoice us, IBM will accept such a document and pay the VAT (if it is legally required to be charged to IBM). IBM makes no representation and cannot provide any advice as to whether such a document is required.

If you do not agree with IBM’s assessment and resulting payment (or non-payment) you must send a formal request for a re-evaluation, giving details of where you disagree to the assessment to BPSO within 60 days following payment (or non-payment).

How to Claim for Italy:

Note: for cases where brand or BPO has provided approval to extend handover date of replaced system, the Solution Provider should submit the claim no later than one month after the hand-over-by date approved by brand.

The claim must include the following information:

The IBM Solution Provider will be paid via their nominated IBM Distributor as follows:
- The earned rebate amount will be applied as a credit in local currency, by IBM to the nominated IBM Business Partner Distributor, whom the IBM Solution Provider has nominated within 45 days of receiving complete and accurate documentation for the claim.

- Applicable Credit Notes will clearly show the name of the IBM Solution Provider, the incentive or program to which the payment relates, the incentive payment amount calculated by IBM as earned by the IBM Solution Provider and the total amount credited.

- It is the IBM Solution Provider' responsibility to agree with their nominated Distributor any terms upon which the transfer of the rebate is performed.
IBM is not responsible if any payment made to a nominated Distributor is not passed on to the IBM Solution Provider.

For all countries:
Any information submitted to IBM will be treated as Confidential, and will only be used for the purposes of determining proof of entitlement, calculation and settlement of rebate requests.
The following Standard Terms and Conditions apply:
