How does business gas comparison work?
Finding those best business gas deals might seem tough. But really it only takes a few minutes of your time and a couple of super simple steps:
Simply provide the name of your business and the address of your premises. The tool will use this information to search industry databases to identify your meter number and your current supplier and tariff, as well as how much gas you’re using.
Using the most up-to-date pricing from the wholesale gas market, the tool compares business gas prices from more than 27 of the best commercial gas suppliers in the UK against your current rate. This makes identifying that better business gas deal so much easier.
Ready to make the switch and benefit from a cheaper commercial gas supply? Experts will do all that heavy lifting for you once you’ve signed your deal – whether you’re a micro-business, an SME or a large corporate entity. This frees you up to focus on the thing that’s most important – running your business.

Switching might seem like a whole lot of hassle you just don’t have time for. But what if we told you that you could potentially save up to 45% by switching your business gas tariff? Sounds good, doesn’t it.
These savings could potentially help you reduce the cost of your overheads and ultimately improve your bottom line. Market fluctuations mean there’s always a chance there’s a cheaper, better deal out there. And if you don’t take advantage of it, you can guarantee your competitors will.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your MPRN is your Meter Point Reference Number. It’s a unique number gas suppliers use to identify the gas service at your premises. So, if you’re in a building with multiple gas services, each one will have its own unique MPRN.
You’ll typically find it on a recent business gas bill. It’s usually six to 10 digits in length. You’ll also be able to find on your meter box – provided you have a newer meter installed. Check out our guide for everything you need to know about MPAN and MPRN numbers.
Typically, yes – especially when you compare them at the unit rate level.
However, it’s more complicated than that. There are other factors that apply to commercial gas supplies that domestic supplies aren’t impacted by. For instance, most businesses will have to pay 20% VAT and pay the Climate Change Levy (CCL) – domestic customers only pay 5% VAT and are exempt from the CCL.
Commercial contracts tend to be considerably longer and aren’t covered by a cooling-off period. This is because suppliers buy all the energy from wholesale needed to cover the duration of the contract at the very start. Fluctuations at wholesale level can also have a greater impact on commercial pricing than they do on domestic pricing.
If you’ve opted to switch, your new supplier should contact you to provide a date for your switch. From this point, it should take between 17 and 21 days to complete. However, with expert help you can leave the heavy lifting and instead have your attention fully directed on running your business.
Your business gas supplier will provide a window of 6-12 months to secure a new contract. Comparing the market before your contract end date will help your business avoid out of contract rates and improve the transation from one supplier to another.
We recinnebd you secure your business gas tariff early to avoid unecessary expenses. Get in touch with a member of the team to make savings on your business gas.
To find out when your business gas contract ends, you will be able to find this on the first page of your statement.
If you cannot find your contract end date on your statement, contact our gas experts who are happy to help.
Getting your readings right is imperative – if you get them wrong you could find yourself grossly overpaying for the amount of gas your business has used. The way you read your usage will depend on whether you have a dial or digital meter and whether it’s imperial or metric.
Imperial gas meters show measurements in cubic feet, with four digits displayed, while metric meters show measurements in cubic metres, with five digits displayed.
On a digital metric meter, you can simply make a note of five numbers to the left of the decimal point. Anything after can be ignored.
With a digital imperial meter, you can take the same approach – ignore anything after the decimal point (these meters will most likely have these digits highlighted in red.)
On a dial meter, you’ll see a series of dials with the numbers zero to nine. Work your way across the various dials noting down the numbers indicated by the pointer. If the number falls between two numbers, note down the lower number. If the number falls between zero and nine, you should note down nine.
It’s important to note, cooling off periods are the exception rather than the norm for commercial tariffs. However, if your supplier does offer one, it’ll essentially allow you to cancel your contract within a set number of days – before you get locked-in or incur any penalty fees.
Early exit fees are a rare thing in the world of commercial energy – because you aren’t normally allowed to cancel before the opening of your contract renewal window. Some suppliers may offer them on occasion. However, there’s usually a price to be paid – that’s your early exit fee.
Your business will need a half-hourly energy meter if:
- Electricity or gas demands of over 100kWh in any 30-minute period.
- Annual gas consumption above 200,000 kWh.
- Annual electricity consumption above 55,000 kWh.
Get in touch with a member of the team for more information on half-hourly meters.
