Most business gas tariffs are made up of two costs:
Unit price, which is the price of each kilowatt hour (kWh) of gas you use
Standing charge, which is the daily fee your supplier charges for managing your service
No standing charge tariffs only charge a unit rate, so you just pay for the gas your business uses.
However, the unit price is usually increased until you have used more than a set number of kWh, so you could end up paying more.
You could save money if:
Your gas usage is low, for example you only use gas for heating and hot water
Your gas use is seasonal, for example you run a café that only opens during the summer
Your business premises is temporary, for example you are due to move location
You could save money if your gas usage is high, because the unit price reduces when you use more than the fixed amount of kWh on the higher rate.
Here is more information about how to choose the best business gas tariff.
You can save money on your business gas if you:
Think about what your business needs, e.g. size, locations and usage
Check you can leave your current contract
Compare as many quotes as possible, including tariffs with standing charges
Talk to suppliers about discounted payment options
Give regular meter readings, so you only pay for the gas you use
This is the daily amount you pay to your supplier for managing your service. You do not have to pay this with a no standing charge tariff.
It depends on your circumstances but you could save money if your usage is low, because you only pay for the days when you use your gas.
It depends on your supplier, but you can usually choose from 12-36 months. Think about how long you will be at your location before you sign up.
Most business gas tariffs do not let you cancel once you have signed up. Check the terms carefully and compare quotes to get the best price.
