Deemed rates

The default rate when you move into new premises

Deemed rates are known as the default rate.  

  • If you move into a new British Gas supplied premises without agreeing a new contract with us, you’ll be on our deemed rates
  • Deemed rates are usually more expensive than a Fixed Price Energy Plan. This is because it costs us more to buy energy to supply your business, if we don't know how long you'll be with us

If you're paying deemed rates you can move to a cheaper business energy price plan by contacting our business movers team.

Deemed rates will change depending on wholesale market price changes. We'll write to you before the prices change.

Standard variable rates

Consider other options

We'll only move you onto our standard variable rates in exceptional circumstances.

If you're going to be moved onto these rates, we'll contact you to let you know the reasons and to explain the options that are open to you.

Large business and corporate customers

If you're a large business or corporate customer then these out of contract rates or Variable Price Plan apply.
