Named Hosters with a Direct SPLA Agreement with Microsoft that includes a direct Rebate on invoices will not receive the Hosting Partner Incentive Rebate.
Non-compliance with eligibility requirements
The eligibility requirements of Hosting Incentives are separate from the requirements in SPLA. Named Hoster eligibility is assessed annually before the incentive program launch for the year. If you are unable to meet the eligibility requirements, you may lose your ability to earn incentives during the period of lapse.
You may still operate under the requirements in SPLA, even if you lose your eligibility to receive Hosting Incentives, unless you have been formally notified that you have become ineligible to operate under SPLA. If you fail to comply with your agreements, Microsoft may terminate your participation in Hosting Incentives.
