How do I switch my business gas supplier?

Switching your business’ gas supply is similar to how you would switch your home supplier. It’s quick and takes minimal effort on your part. Simply enter a few details about your consumption, compare commercial gas quotes that meet your requirements, select the option that’s most suitable and apply online.

The new business gas provider will manage the whole switching process for you. Your current supply won’t be affected, the gas will be delivered through the same pipes that you’re currently using.

The only thing you need to do is to obtain a final meter reading and make sure any current or previously outstanding bills have been paid for. Your current supplier is likely to inform you about this.

If you’re moving away early from a fixed rate business gas tariff, you will need to ensure that any exit fees are paid for (if applicable). Compare these costs against what you’re likely to save by switching your business gas provider.

Can I still switch if my business gas is supplied by an independent gas transporter (IGT)?

It is estimated that around one million properties in the UK are on Independent Gas Transporters (IGTs), these are smaller gas networks linked to larger networks.

If your gas is transported through an IGT instead of the National Grid, you can still compare business gas suppliers and switch. Although the switching process may take additional time due to the above.

Standing charges will usually be more expensive with IGTs, this means your gas contract and tariff will cost more. If you receive gas through an IGT, your quotes will not include the additional IGT charges. You will have to pay these on top of the tariff you select.

Some larger gas suppliers may include these within their standing charges, however, it’s important to check the terms and conditions before you agree to a new contract.

What information do I need to switch business gas?

If about to compare business gas prices or switch business gas supplier, it’s quick and simple with Utility Saving Expert. To compare and switch you’ll need the following details:

  • blue-bullet-pointExisting gas supplier’s name
  • blue-bullet-pointThe postcode of your business premises
  • blue-bullet-pointYour current gas consumption
  • blue-bullet-pointDate your current contract is due to end
  • blue-bullet-pointThe meter number

These details can be found on your most recent business gas bill. Once you’ve entered this information, we’ll display a range of quotes for you to select from. Use the filtering tools to easily find the right business gas supplier and tariff that meets your requirements.

What happens when I switch business gas suppliers?

The new business gas supplier will inform you on which date the switch is due to take place. You will also be given other useful information regarding payment methods and important dates to add to your calendar. Ensure the information is accurate, if there’s any issues, let your provider know as soon as possible.

Your previous supplier will request a final meter reading on the day the switch is due to take place. This will enable them to send you your final invoice.

Make sure you’re happy with all the terms and conditions of the contract. This is because as a business gas customer, you are not likely to be given a “cooling off period”.

Do I need to replace my gas meter?

In most cases, no. If you have a standard gas meter then you will not need to replace it.

What rate of VAT should I be paying?

Most businesses in the UK will have to pay the standard VAT rate at 20% for their commercial gas supply. If your gas consumption is lower (less than 4,397kWh per month – check your bill for details), or you’re operating a charity or not-for-profit organisation, you may be eligible for a 15% VAT reduction.

If this is applicable, contact your business gas supplier and request a VAT declaration form.

What factors influence business gas prices?

Commercial gas prices can be influenced by a number of different factors. These can all take place at any moment. One of the main factors is wholesale market prices. Other factors include the following:

  • green-bullet-pointCurrency rates from around the world
  • green-bullet-pointGovernment initiatives and levies
  • green-bullet-pointRegulator fees and charges
  • green-bullet-pointSupply and demand

Due to the above, many businesses will opt for a fixed rate gas tariff. These can protect you from price increases that come from variable rate tariffs. Fixed rate gas tariffs for businesses are available between 12 to 36 months. Generally, the longer you fix the tariff for, the more it will cost.

What is green business gas?

Green gas is sourced from renewable energy sources. At this moment in time, renewable gas hasn’t developed as much as green electricity. This means that your business may not be able to access this option yet.
