UCB Substitute W9 & Supplier Information Form (Sub W9)

How can I submit the UCB Sub W9 form?

Because forms can contain sensitive information like Social Security Numbers, the UCB Sub W9 form must be submitted to our secure fax line (510-664-7209). 

You can use a fax machine or an online fax service to submit. The University email system does not support transmission of this data. There are several ways to submit online, you should use the process that best fits your business needs.

We have provided a tutorial on using FaxZero, although there are many other online fax services you can use. Review this document

We do not endorse any specific method but can suggest reviewing offerings available online. You can search for "online free fax" or review this website: How-To-Geek website for more information.
