How this Tapas Bar earns Travel Rewards for paying its suppliers

Kipling’s Wine Bar is one of Turramurra’s most popular destinations to taste an extensive variety of vintage wines, and enjoy shared plates ranging from pulled pork croquettes to roasted figs in a relaxed atmosphere. However, this unique location has an interesting history beyond the ordinary tapas bar. The now chic, modern space was in fact once a thriving petrol station on Sydney’s North Shore. Today, its large garage wall serves as an ambient floor-to-ceiling window, where guests can dine comfortably inside the restaurant while seated on leather sofas arranged near an ornate tiled bar or gathered with friends outdoors in the sunny courtyard.  

For managing director Helen Thompson, one of the most challenging aspects of keeping this lively tapas location running has nothing to do with the busy nights of guests dining, but instead comes from managing regular payments to creditors. 

“We created a weekly pay run to pay our creditors and we set this up in B2B as a bulk payment, allowing enough time for payee terms. Previous bulk uploads have been arduous and clunky, but now that we use B2B this process seems pretty seamless as soon as creditors have been verified.” 

In addition to using B2Bpy to set up bulk payments, Helen has also appreciated the ease of connecting B2Bpay with her accounting software, Xero. Now that she’s connected, she can view all her bills she has entered in Xero in B2Bpay and can simply click and pay. Businesses such as Kipling’s Garage bar save time and admin costs with the smooth automatic reconciliation of connectingB2Bpay with their accounting software. 

Helen has also benefited from the ability to earn Qantas Points with every eligible payment the business makes, using preferred suppliers to maximise points earning. (If a supplier is registered as a Bonus Biller with B2Bpay, you can earn up to 3 Qantas Points per $1.50 on payments.) And because Kiplings Garage Bar is known for its wide selection of wines from across the world, including Australia, Europe and Latin America, travel is an important part of the business to gain inspiration. Helen has used the rewards points the business earns to pay for both business travel and staff incentives. 

“In the future, we would like to continue in this vein once things get back to ‘normal’ and we can move about the country more freely,” Helen explains.
