I want to save money on business gas

Business gas is calculated very differently to household gas. There are several factors that contribute to this, from the size of your property to your company’s specific requirements.

Whether you’re the business manager for a busy office, a city centre hotel, a local café or a multinational restaurant chain, we can help you find the most competitive gas deal in seconds

Choosing the right gas tariff for your business

There are two types of gas tariffs available to businesses - fixed rate gas tariffs and variable rate tariffs.

The most popular tariff chosen by businesses is a fixed rate tariff. Fixed rate tariffs often work out cheaper as you won’t have to pay more if gas prices increase. What’s more, gas providers will offer fixed rates for a number of years, with the majority of suppliers fixing prices for up to 5 years, so it allows businesses to maintain control of their outgoings.

Unlike fixed rate tariffs where the price you pay is fixed for a period of time, variable rate gas tariff prices can change from month to month. This is because prices are based on market rates, so if prices increase, you’ll pay more for your gas and visa versa. If you want to switch from variable rate to fixed rates, you can do so quite easily. All you have to do is provide your supplier with 30 days’ notice that you are leaving.

We’ve made it really easy for you to check gas rates and compare suppliers, get a quote today and see how much you could save.

How to find a cheap gas deal for your business

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)

Make your gas bill cheaper by choosing a fixed-rate tariff without standing charges

A standing charge is the price you pay for your supplier to provide gas into your business and is charged whether you use gas or not.

However, some gas providers offer fixed tariffs with no standing charge. This means that if you do not use gas, you will not be charged a fee for the supply of gas to your business premises as part of your monthly bill.

While these tariffs may charge a higher unit price per kWh for the energy you use, you may wish to consider this type of contract, especially if:

  • Your gas consumption is low
  • You run a seasonal business that only operates part of the year
  • Your business is closed at the weekends

The easiest way to find the cheapest gas provider is to compare gas prices.

Cancelling your gas contract early
If you wish to leave your contract early and switch to a cheaper gas tariff, you could be charged an early exit fee, so make sure you weigh up the financial pros and cons of switching before making the move.

If you want to cancel your contract because you are moving premises then all you need to do is contact your current supplier and let them know when you’ll be moving. You will not be charged an exit fee for doing this as contracts are attached to the premises and not the account holder.

Our top tip for switching to a cheaper deal: You can shop around and secure a cheaper deal up to 12 months before your contract ends. Lock in an incredible deal today - compare gas suppliers now .

Business gas FAQs

  • Why is business gas more expensive than domestic gas?

    If you’ve shopped for household gas recently, you may have noticed that the unit price of gas was cheaper than it is for businesses. This is because domestic customers pay less VAT. Plus, what you pay is also dependent on your gas usage and the size of your property.

  • How much VAT should I pay on my business gas?

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

  • How much do businesses save when they switch gas providers?

    On average, our business customers save 40% when they switch. Exact savings can vary depending on how much gas you use, which region your business is located in and the type of contract/tariff you choose.

    The best way to see how much you could save is to request a gas quote using our comparison engine. Make sure you have details on your current supplier and bill so that we can provide accurate quotes.

  • What's green business gas?

    Green business gas is a more environmentally friendly way to power your business and is often produced from sustainable sources such as plants or animal waste. Green gas is still being developed so whether you can access type of energy may depend on your location.

    Read Love Energy Savings Guide to Green Energy Deals for more information.

  • What do I need to switch business gas?

    To switch business gas, grab a copy of your latest bill for the following details:

    • Your supplier name
    • Your monthly payment amount
    • Current energy consumption and unit rate (kWh)
    • Your gas meter number

    With this information you will be able to compare new quotes against your current rate and find the most comprehensive gas deal for you.

  • How long will it take to switch gas suppliers?

    Once you’ve agreed your new tariff, it usually takes between 4 and 6 weeks for your contract to go live. The whole process will be managed on your behalf but if you want to keep up-to-date with how things are progressing, use the market’s first Track My Switch tool.

  • How does switching business gas work?

    The process of switching business gas is quite simple. If you choose to switch through Love Energy Savings, we will handle all the arrangements for you, including negotiations between suppliers to make it whole process as straightforward as possible for you.

    There will be no downtime to your business either, so you won’t have to suffer any disruption to your daily routine. Once the switch is complete, we’ll let you know. It really is that easy.

  • Will my gas supply be cut off if I change gas providers?

    No, your gas supply will not be cut off during the switching process. It’s a really simple transition between suppliers that we will manage entirely on your behalf.

  • Can I switch suppliers if my business gas is supplied by an Independent Gas Transporter (IGT)?

    Yes, you can still switch suppliers if your business gas is supplied by an Independent Gas Transporter (IGT). There will be no additional charge or issues to consider when switching because the gas supply provided through this network is no different from normal networks.

    If you want to see if your gas is provided through an IGT network, check your meter and see if your meter starts with the number 74, 75, 76 or 77. You’ll find this information on your gas bill.

  • What happens once I switch business gas suppliers?

    When you’re switching suppliers, make sure you leave your current Direct Debit in place until you have formal confirmation that your contract has been terminated. This is because you may owe some money to your previous supplier or they may owe you money.

    Once your business gas supply has been switched, you will receive confirmation that this has happened. There will be no downtime or interruption to your business.

  • Will my gas meter need to be replaced?

    If you have a standard meter, then your meter shouldn’t have to be replaced. Our energy experts can provide more details if you have any concerns.

  • What affects business gas prices?

    Here in the UK we import our gas, so this means there are a number of factors that impact gas prices and why we see cost fluctuations. Examples include:

    • Wholesale price
    • Demand for gas
    • Currency/exchange rates
    • Regulatory fees
    • Government levies

    The best way to protect your business from rising gas prices is to choose a fixed-term contract as this means the price you pay for gas can be locked in for a number of years.
