Hitting the road? Xero now integrates with BP Plus Fuel Card in Australia and the BP Fuelcard in New Zealand, keeping small businesses on the road without the headache of holding onto physical receipts.
As announced at Xerocon Brisbane in September, BP has partnered with Xero Connect in Australia and New Zealand to enable business customers to automate the entry of monthly invoices related to fuel expenses into Xero.. This solution is perfect for any business that needs to fuel up a work vehicle for business related trips.
How Xero Connect works
With Xero Connect, invoices flow automatically into your Xero account, eliminating manual data entry, saving you time and helping you increase data accuracy. You can connect to your Xero account via the BP customer portal, provided you pay your invoices directly and not through a third party. You can also select your preferences, including the accounts you want your fuel expenses to be coded to.
Once connected, the BP invoice will flow automatically into Xero as a draft bill awaiting your approval. When the invoice is paid, payment will appear in Xero and is matched to the bill for easy bank reconciliation.
General Manager of Business Partnerships for BP Australia, Mike Hart adds that the Xero Connect partnership is another way BP is making business even easier for our fuel card customers.
“Every business is always looking for ways to do things better: whether it be a little tweak to free up some time, a new tool that grants deeper insight or a fresh system to give more benefit over time. As a result of this partnership with Xero our customers will be able to feed their BP Plus fuel invoices automatically into their Xero account. Ultimately, helping customers save time, gain better accuracy and removing manual entry, giving them more time to focus on their business priorities.”
General Manager of BP B2B Sales & Reseller in New Zealand, Haley Mahoney, says the company is always looking for ways to bring additional value to Fuelcard customers.
