Business Gas Quotes From A Panel Of Trusted Suppliers 

We've helped businesses all over the UK save money on their business gas prices. With a panel of trusted business gas suppliers, we'll help you find competetive business gas quotes in just 30 seconds.

With wholesale gas prices rising rapidly, you may be reluctant to switch suppliers. However, many companies are choosing to fix their business gas prices to avoid any potential future price increases for peace of mind.

We're here to help you find the best possible business gas quote for your company, so you can get back to doing what you do best.

Compare Gas Prices For Business - What Information Do I Need?

Switching business gas suppliers is easy when you have the right information to hand. You'll know most of the information, but it is always handy to have a recent business gas bill to hand as this will help you get the most accurate quote for your consumption levels.

Here's the information we'll need from you:

  • Your business gas bill (this has your annual consumption)
  • Your meter type (don't worry if you're not sure)
  • Basic business information (name, address & contact info)
  • Your current business gas supplier

What Business Gas Tariffs Are Available?

Here, we’ve broken down some of the most common business gas tariffs.

Fixed-Rate

A fixed-rate tariff is a popular option for businesses switching gas suppliers. With a fixed rate tariff, you agree to pay a fixed unit price and a standing charge. This price will be locked in for the duration of your contract which can be up to 5 years. Fixed-rate tariffs offer security for businesses as they can avoid any price hikes during their contract. As prices increase, many businesses are seeking as much certainty in their costs as possible. However, this also means your business will not benefit should prices reduce.

No Standing Charge

A standing charge is a fixed daily amount that businesses and households pay to their gas supplier. This covers the cost of delivering and maintaining your gas supply. With a no-standing charge tariff, your daily fee will be set to zero. This means you will only pay for the gas your business uses. This tariff is often a good choice for seasonal businesses or companies which only open a few days a week. You should keep in mind that your unit prices may be higher on a no-standing charge tariff.

Variable Rate

With a variable rate tariff, you will pay your supplier’s standard rate for the gas you use. The price you pay will be dependent on the market price. So, if the market prices increase, you will pay more for the gas your business uses. With prices increasing, more businesses have switched to variable tariffs as suppliers set fixed tariffs at higher rates to make up for money lost on wholesale costs. If you’re on a variable tariff, you will have the option of switching to a fixed-rate tariff if you find that your prices continue to rise.

Choosing the right business gas tariff can help you make the most of your supply. The best tariff for you will depend on the requirements of your business.

Latest Business Gas Prices Per kWh In 2024

Wholesale gas prices can be unpredictable, which makes it tough to keep track of the latest prices and even tougher to be sure if your business is on the most suitable deal.

So we’ve provided the latest average business gas prices per kWh by business size in the UK. You can see a more accurate price by comparing business gas prices today.

Business Size Annual Usage Price per kWh Standing Charge Avg. Annual Cost
Micro business up to 5,000 9.6p 43.6p £399.91
Small business 5,000-15,000 7.9p 52.3p £985.23
Medium business 15,000-25,000 7.8p 56.7p £1,770.23
Large business 25,000-50,000 7.7p 73.3p £5,649.74

Data correct as of February 2024. These prices reflect a live market and are subject to fluctuation.

As you may expect, tariffs are updated regularly and the best way to find the latest deals is to compare business gas prices with Love Energy Savings.

 

Business Gas Renewals

You may be tempted to just accept your business gas renewal when it comes through the post. Business gas suppliers want you to do this as they typically charge higher than the current market rates.

In fact, in some cases, companies will start comparing business gas prices to find out if their current supplier is offering cheaper gas rates to new customers. If you have just got your renewal through, you should always compare gas prices to see what the current rates are.

Many customers use our service to generate a range of business quotes and switch to the one which offers the best saving for their business.

 

Why Are Automatic Renewals More Expensive?

Some business gas suppliers may not send out a renewal notice but your renewal should arrive at least 60 days before your contract end date. You should always make sure that you have added a reminder to your calendar.

Business gas suppliers will place you on expensive out-of-contract rates if you fail to secure a new deal before the contract end date. What you may not know is that you can actually secure your new business gas contract up to 12 months before the contract end date. 

When Is The Best Time To Compare Business Gas quotes? 

The best time to get fresh business gas quotes and consider switching comes down to several factors:

  • If you're in the final 12 months of your business gas contract
  • If you're expecting business gas prices to rise in the next 6-12 months
  • If you haven't switched suppliers in a long time

From start to finish, we will switch business gas suppliers within 5 working days.

Which Business Gas Suppliers Can I Switch To?

When comparing business gas suppliers, it’s important to find the right tariff to meet the needs of your company.

Many suppliers offered tailored services to small and large businesses to help you make the most of your business gas tariff. For example, British Gas Lite offer online-only tariffs aiming to reduce costs for customers.

When you compare business gas suppliers with Love Energy Savings, you can quickly view the latest deals online. You’ll even have the option of completing your switch online or talking to a member of our team for further support.

What Factors Impact Business Gas Prices?

Here, we’ve broken down the different factors which impact business gas prices.

Switching business gas suppliers is super easy but with prices surging, it can be difficult to understand what is a great deal. 

The first step to getting cheaper business gas bills is understanding your bill. This will help guide your knowledge of what the business needs. You can then start to look at ways to increase efficiency.

Here are some of the things that can impact the price of your quote:

  • Wholesale gas prices
  • The location of your business
  • The size of your premises
  • Your annual consumption
  • The sector your business operates in
  • Your meter type 

Some of these factors can lead to businesses deciding not to switch business gas suppliers. However, this can leave companies on a tariff that doesn’t suit their needs.

Love Energy Savings are available to help your business navigate the market and secure the right deal for you. No matter how big or small your business, we’ll help you find the best business gas quotes from our panel of trusted suppliers.

How To Read A Business Gas Meter

After you have located and identified your business gas meter, you may want to take a reading. Your gas meter will be imperial or metric. An imperial meter has four main numbers and a metric meter has five. Here's how you read a gas meter for each type:

  • Dial Gas Meters - this is the most challenging to read. You will see a series of dials, each marked 0-9. You read the numbers each pointer is indicating on each dial from left to right. If the pointer is between two numbers, you note the lowest number, except if the pointer is between 0 and 9 in which case note 9. Ignore any red dials, dials marked '100 per rev' and the largest dial, usually in the centre.
  • Digital Meters - a common digital meter will display a series of numbers on a screen. Simply just take note of the numbers from left to right, ignoring any digits in red, any printed zeroes or any digits after a decimal point or a space.
  • Smart Meters - you don't have to worry about taking any meter readings as they're sent straight to your supplier. If you do need to take a reading, follow the instructions for digital meters.

You can read more about taking meter readings here.

Business Gas FAQs

  • Can I Cancel My Business Gas Contract Early?

    Although it is possible to cancel a business gas contract early, you should always speak with your supplier first. Most business contracts will involve an early exit fee which is often much higher than for domestic deals.

    You can secure a new deal up to 12 months before the end of your current deal when your renewal window opens. This means if you find favourable rates when you compare business gas prices, you can lock those rates in early.

  • Can I Switch to a Renewable Business Gas Tariff?

    Green business gas is a more environmentally friendly way to power your business. It is often produced from sustainable sources such as plants or animal waste. Renewable tariffs have grown in popularity in recent years and discrepancies in prices have been reduced.

  • How Much VAT Should I Pay on My Business Gas?

    The typical VAT rate for most businesses is 20%. If you operate a charity or a not-for-profit, you could be eligible for a VAT reduction to 5%. If you have any questions, you should speak to your gas supplier and request a VAT declaration form.

  • What Are Automatic Renewals?

    Automatic renewals are actioned by suppliers if you have not agreed to a contract with new business gas rates. These rates are usually much more expensive.

  • My Premises Uses an Analogue Dial Meter for My Business Gas Meter Readings; Should I Switch to a Digital Meter?

    It is challenging to read an analogue meter. Many businesses choose to upgrade to a digital meter for easy meter readings. A more accurate reading will save money as you will be paying the exact amount you have used.

  • Can You Switch Business Gas Suppliers if You Work From Home?

    At least 50% of your gas usage must be considered business use to qualify. Some suppliers will have different thresholds for you to qualify.

  • Can I Cancel My Business Gas Contract?

    It is difficult to cancel your business gas contract. In certain situations like moving business premises allows you to cancel, but cancelling mid-contract will come with hefty fees.

  • Does a Landlord Pay Business Gas Rates?

    Landlords are responsible for business gas contracts in certain commercial leases. Arrangements vary and can be one of the following: 

    • The landlord will budget the business gas prices in the lease and cover the costs.
    • The landlord will manage the business gas supply and invoice the tenant every month.
    • The tenant is responsible for managing the business gas supply and will pay it themselves. Many often prefer this as they can find ways to save money on their bills. 
  • Can I Change My Business Gas Supplier if I Have Multiple Buildings?

    Yes. Businesses with multiple buildings and locations can switch business gas and consolidate their bills into one account. For example, a business may have two offices, with gas contracts ending on different dates. An ideal scenario would be that they end on the same date. This means that the business can negotiate both prices at the same time.
