How to get a great deal on business gas

When it comes to finding the best business gas deal, there is no one size fits all approach.

We help both small and large businesses find the most competitive business gas deals in seconds.

Choosing the right gas tariff for your business

Choosing the right gas tariff for your business will depend on the needs of your business. It is helpful to consider what type of tariff suits your business best. If you're not sure, one of our experts would be more than happy to help.

Fixed rate business gas tariffs

A fixed rate tariff is one of the popular options for businesses switching gas supplier.

When you switch to a fixed rate tariff, you pay a fixed price on the kWh unit and a standing charge. This price will be locked for the duration of your contract which can be between one and five years.

The main benefit of a fixed rate tariff is that your business will be protected from price increases. Although, this means your business will not benefit if the gas market prices were to drop.

A fixed rate business gas tariff is recommended for businesses seeking certainty and security. As the price you will be paying for your business gas will be the same throughout your contract.

Variable rate business gas tariffs

With a variable rate business gas tariff, you will pay your supplier’s standard rate for the gas you use.

Variable rate tariffs can be beneficial for business who want some flexibility.

The price you pay will be dependent on the market price. So, if the market prices drop, you will pay less for the gas you use. If the market price increases, you will have to pay the inflated business gas rates.

A variable rate tariff can be cancelled with 30 days’ notice. You will have the option of switching to a fixed rate tariff if you find that prices continue to rise.

No standing charge business gas tariffs

A standing charge is a fixed daily amount that businesses and households pay to their energy supplier. This covers the cost of supplying a property with gas and electricity and any maintenance involved.

With a no standing charge tariff, you won’t be required to pay this fee, meaning that you will only pay for the gas you use. However, you will pay a higher rate for the gas your business does use.

A no standing charge tariff can be a good option for seasonal businesses who may not be open all year round. Companies who only open a few days a week would also see savings.

If your business uses large amounts of gas, a no standing charge tariff could be more costly in the long run.

How to find a cheap gas deal for your business

Business energy suppliers are required to send out renewals to micro business when their contract is ending.

This means that many businesses have found themselves on expensive ‘rollover contracts’ when their energy deals come to end.

If your business has been ‘rolled over’, you are likely to be paying your suppliers most expensive rates.

Cheaper business gas rates are likely to be available to businesses who have not switched in a while.

What affects the cost of business gas?

Business gas is calculated very differently to household gas. There are several factors that contribute to this, including:

  • Your location
  • The size of your premises
  • Your current supplier
  • Current spend on business gas
  • Current consumption of kWh units and current standing charges
  • Meter type (standard, economy 7, maximum demand or half hourly)

What is the average cost of business gas?

It’s understandable that many businesses are unsure how much they should be paying for their business gas.

When your business gas contract is up for renewal, it is common for suppliers to quote prices which are much higher than average in your renewal letter. Accepting these terms can result in businesses being locked into expensive rates for a number of years.

By having a good idea of the average costs of business gas and comparing prices regularly, you can avoid overpaying for the energy you use.

Here, we’ve provided the average gas prices for businesses of varying sizes.

Business gas prices by business size

Business size Annual Usage Unit Price/kWh Standing charge Annual Bill
Micro 5,000 kWh 3.925p 27.40p £296
Small 15,000 kWh 2.303p 26.83p £443
Medium 35,000 kWh 2.228p 26.41p £894
Large 75,000 kWh 1.925p 26.20p £1,539

As you may expect, the average charges are by no means the cheapest business gas prices available. The quickest way to find the best prices is to compare business gas suppliers with Love Energy Savings.
