How could you benefit from a business gas comparison?

There are many commercial gas suppliers, each competing for new customers in an increasingly competitive market. So, despite wholesale marketplace volatility, this means there will always be great rates to be had. Switching can help you:

  • Move to a new deal before you end up on a costly out-of-contract rate
  • Avoid being trapped on an expensive rollover tariff
  • Gain access to competitive renewal rates from your existing gas supplier
  • Find a supplier that consistently delivers high-quality customer service
  • Discover green energy options, such as green gas deals
  • Ultimately save thousands of pounds on your annual business gas rates

How can you save money on business gas prices?

Why are business gas rates so high at the moment?

Business gas prices have recently hit unprecedented levels. This rate hike has been caused by the volatility of the wholesale gas market. Prices reached an all-time high in December 2021. This has continued into 2022 and is expected to carry on through until 2023.

Depleted gas reserves because of bad winters and increased usage during the pandemic, coupled with the ongoing conflict in Ukraine have had and will continue to have a significant impact on pricing.

That doesn’t mean you can’t or won’t be find a more cost-effective business gas tariff for your company. Compare business gas prices today!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MPRN?

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.

Is business gas cheaper than domestic gas?

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.

How long does it take to switch business gas supplier?

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.

When can I switch my business gas supplier?

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.

How do I find out when my business gas contract ends?

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.

How to read your business gas meter

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.

What is a cooling-off period?

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.

What is an early exit fee?

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.

What is a half-hourly meter?

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.

How can I save money on my business gas?

The best way to save money on your business gas is to compare the market to find the best solution for your business.

Our Business Energy Comparison consultants can help find your business ways to reduce your gas consumption and find the best commercial gas tariff for your business.

How much VAT should I be paying on my business gas?

Normally, businesses are expected to pay 20% VAT on business gas. Businesses such as not for profit organisations and charities are eligable for a VAT reduction.

For more information, get in touch with your commerical gas supplier and ask for a VAT declaration form.

 

Why should I use a broker/consultancy for my business gas?
