Did you know that when you move to new business premises you're automatically put onto a high gas tariff called a deemed rate? It's called this because a contract is deemed to exist between the premises' current gas supplier and your business. Many businesses make the mistake of staying on this deemed rate meaning they continue to pay expensive gas rates. When you move to new business premises it's a good idea to compare gas prices so that you don't automatically get stuck with a high rate. By comparing the different tariffs of various gas providers, you can dramatically cut your business gas costs.

Why compare business gas prices?

Even if you're a small business, staying on the high 'deemed rate' that automatically comes with your new premises could add hundreds of pounds to your annual gas bill. Comparing business gas prices online is quick and hassle free. By investing just a short amount of time to compare gas providers, you could save your business a substantial amount of money.

Comparing business gas prices isn't just a good idea when you move premises, as it can also save your business money when you've had the same premises for a while. Market prices change regularly, so what was good value when you first signed up may no longer be a competitive gas rate. Suppliers regularly offer new customers great energy deals, so by switching your supplier you can find a competitive rate for your business gas. By doing some research and finding the best gas tariff for your business, you could make significant savings on your gas bill.

How do I compare business gas prices?

Comparing the prices of different gas providers will help you find the most competitive gas rate for your business. There are lots of third party price comparison websites that will help you find a wide range of quotes, or you can visit individual energy providers’ websites to check their rates.
