Compare Business Gas Prices
If your business is cooking on gas, it can be easy to rack up costs with high energy bills, especially if your supplier has you on an expensive rate or tariff. Keeping on top of your energy usage and comparing business gas prices is the best way to make sure you’re not getting overcharged.
Another reason to compare business gas suppliers and switch is to get a better level of service. If you’re frustrated with your current supplier for any reason, say you have billing issues or can never speak to an advisor, our tech-enable energy experts can help you find a more suitable supplier.
At Bionic, we only work with trusted suppliers, so you can be sure of a great deal and a great service.
How to compare business gas prices and switch
Business energy comparison works a little differently to home energy comparison - unlike domestic energy deals, there are no standard ‘off-the-shelf tariffs’, meaning all commercial contracts are designed to meet the specific needs of each individual business.
So to compare gas prices and find the best deal, you’ll either have to ring around each and every supplier yourself or go through the faff of dealing with a small independent broker.
Or you could contact the business gas team at Bionic and let them do all the hard work for you.
The best time to switch is when your current deal is up for renewal.
We only need your business address postcode to get started and our tech-enabled experts will use smart data to find the right deal for your business. No unnecessary form-filling. No long phone calls. No faff.
When is the best time to compare business gas prices?
The best time to switch is when your current deal is up for renewal. But the thing with most business energy deals is that you’re tied into them until the contract’s end date, so switching early isn’t an option.
If you’re on a fixed-term energy deal, whereby you sign up with a supplier for a set period of time, you won’t be able to compare suppliers and sign up to a new deal until your current one is in its ‘renewal window’ - this is usually between one and six months before your contract’s end date.
When you switch with Bionic, there’s no need to keep an eye on this renewal window - we’ll let you know when your current contract is due to end and find another great deal to replace it with, year after year.
How much should your business gas costs be?
The cost of your business gas bills can be affected by lots of things, including the location of your premises and how much gas you typically use. The table below should give you a rough idea of the average amount you can expect to pay, according to the size of your business.
|Business size||Average price (per kWh)||Standing charge (daily)|
|Micro business||4.1p - 4.5p||23p - 26p|
|Small business||3.8p - 4.0p||21p - 22p|
|Medium business||3.5p - 3.7p||18p - 20p|
How much VAT do you pay on gas for business?
Most businesses pay the standard 20% VAT on gas, but you might qualify for the lower 5% rate if you run a charity or not-for-profit organisation, or if you use less than 4,397kWh each month – you can find this on your bill. If this is the case, ask your gas supplier for a VAT declaration form.
What happens when you switch your business gas supplier?
When you switch business gas suppliers with Bionic, we’ll let both your old and new gas supplier know what’s happening.
Your new supplier will then get in touch with details of when the changeover will take place, along with agreed payment methods and dates. But remember, there’s no cooling-off period, so make sure you’re completely happy with your contract before you sign up.
Your old supplier will then need a meter reading on the day of the switch, so they can send you an accurate final bill.
We can also help you cut your business electricity bills - give us a call to see how much you could save.
And that’s all there is to it - there’s no need for any drilling or digging at your workplace as the gas will be supplied through the existing pipes, and so long as you have a standard meter in place there should be no need to replace that either.
