  4. To apply for Monthly Billing simply log in to your Uber for Business Dashboard, go to the Billing tab and submit a request

  5. Xero will extract the statement data and automatically create a draft bill in Xero.

  6. You can then review, approve and pay the draft bill.

  7. When the payment record comes into Xero via your bank feed, it will automatically be matched to your Uber for Business statement and reconciled.
