How to find the best business gas tariff

Business gas prices vary between suppliers depending on your business circumstances, so you need to get quotes from different energy companies to find the best deal.

Instead of contacting each business energy supplier individually, you can save time by comparing business gas deals through our energy experts.

To get started, all we need is your business address postcode and we'll search for the best business gas tariff to meet your needs.

How big is your business?

This affects which tariffs you can get because some energy companies only supply businesses of certain sizes. Types of businesses that can be covered include:

  • Small: This is suited to businesses with low gas usage and micro businesses. Check if you are a micro business.

  • Large: This is suited to businesses with high gas usage, for example restaurants or companies with a large space to heat.

  • Multi site: This is suited to businesses that need service at more than one location. You usually get a discount if you need multi site service.

Which business gas tariff?

The cost of your business gas bill is affected by the type of tariff you choose. Here are three possible options:

  • Fixed: The price of your gas stays the same throughout your contract, but you may be tied in for up to four years. This stops you from switching until your contract ends.

  • Flexible: You pay for the gas you need up front, which lets you take advantage of low rates if your usage is high. However, you may lose out if prices drop after you buy.

  • Eco: The gas supply comes from renewable sources, so the gas is more eco friendly. The price of eco tariffs vary, so compare quotes to find the best price.

Here is how to choose the best business gas tariff

How long is your business gas deal?

You can usually choose a contract of between 12 and 48 months, but some contracts run for longer. Think about:

  • How long you plan to stay at your business premises

  • Whether the size of your business is likely to change

  • How often you want the flexibility to switch supplier

If you choose a fixed term contract, you cannot switch supplier until your contract ends, so compare as many quotes as possible to get the cheapest rate.

Business gas FAQs

Can I switch tariff if I have a fixed contract?

Unless you're on a deemed contract, you can only switch your business gas tariff if you are in your renewal period or your contract has ended. Your supplier will contact you 60-120 days before the end of your contract so you can start to shop around. Find out more on switching supplier here.

Do I have to pay a standing charge on my business gas?

It is possible to get a business energy tariff with no standing charge. This isn't always the cheapest option, but could offer good value if your business doesn't use a lot of energy. Compare tariffs with no standing charge here.

Do business gas prices vary depending on contract length?

Yes, you may be able to get cheaper gas if you pick a longer contract. However, it means that you will be unable to switch until the contract ends so consider carefully how long you're willing to be tied into your business gas contract.

Do I have to take a meter reading before I switch supplier?

Yes, you will need to give your new supplier an up to date meter reading, and your old supplier a final reading to ensure you are billed correctly. Here is how to manage your switch.

Can I get dual fuel for my gas and electricity?

No, business energy companies do not offer dual fuel rates. It may work out that getting both fuels from the same supplier is the cheapest deal for you, but you need separate contracts for your business gas and electricity.
