Current British Gas Business energy tariffs
How does business gas pricing work?
Business gas prices are not calculated in the same way as domestic gas tariffs as they are set up differently.
The unit pricing of business gas could potentially be cheaper than domestic prices depending on the size of the business and your gas consumption. However, domestic customers pay a lower rate of VAT on gas than businesses.
It may be calculated on a fixed or a variable rate tariff. A fixed business gas price plan offers set unit prices for a defined period of time. The contract length is usually between one and three years, but can be as high as five. With a flexible or variable rate price plan your unit rate and standing charge could go up or down.
Types of business gas rates
- Fixed term plans – Guarantee the unit price of gas per kWh for a set period of time, plans usually run for between one and three years
Variable rate plans – Unit prices of gas can go up or down, but are typically costlier than fixed-term rates. You have the option to give notice and switch to another plan or supplier
