Once we've set up your account, we'll write to you with more information including how to get in touch with us. Until then please contact AvantiGas ON with any questions about your account.
AvantiGas ON have decided to exit the mains gas supply market and we are delighted to take over the contract to supply gas to your business. You're in safe hands. We'll do everything we can to make this a smooth transfer for you.
No. Your energy supply will continue uninterrupted through the transfer process.
Yes. Your terms and conditions, and any agreed fixed prices, will stay the same until the end of your contract term.
If your plan is due to end soon, and AvantiGas ON have not been in touch about what happens next, either AvantiGas ON or British Gas will write to you before your plan ends.
If you've already agreed your next fixed term contract, it will transfer to your new British Gas account. The terms and conditions, and any fixed prices, you agreed with AvantiGas ON will stay the same until the end of your contract term.
We'll start setting up accounts for AvantiGas ON customers in November 2022, we expect to have all AvantiGas ON customers set up by the end of January 2023.
Please pay AvantiGas ON for any bills they send you. They will continue to send you monthly bills until your British Gas account is ready. They will then send you a final bill.
Once your new account is ready, we'll start to send you monthly bills for the gas you use.
If you have a credit on your account after your final bill, AvantiGas ON will transfer it to your British Gas account. You'll see your credit deducted from your gas charges on your first British Gas bill.
When your British Gas account is ready, there are a couple of things we may need you to do:
If you already pay by Direct Debit, please do not cancel it. We'll transfer your Direct Debit to your new British Gas account for you. The only difference is that it will say 'British Gas Business' on your bank/building society statement.
If you don't pay by Direct Debit but would like to, you'll be able to setup a Direct Debit through your online account. We'll be in touch when this is ready for you.

Yes, your transfer should go ahead as normal and you'll hear from your new supplier. If not, you can start your switch again five days after your new British Gas account is setup.
There are some circumstances when your switch may not go ahead. This could be because you're in a contract or you have an outstanding balance on your account.
Once we've setup your new British Gas account, we'll be able to help you with any questions about your account. We'll write to let you know when your new account is ready, and how to get in touch with us.
