Comparing Business Gas Prices - What Information Do I Need?

Our comparison engine only needs your business address and permission to look up your usage data. It takes 30 seconds to see live prices on our site. However, having a few more bits of information is helpful to ensure you’re getting a more accurate business gas quote. 

Having a recent business gas bill, what type of meter you have (not essential), your business information and your current gas supplier are all helpful things to have.

How Are Business Gas Prices Calculated?

Looking over your business gas bill can raise several questions and one of the most common ones we come across is ‘How is the cost of business gas calculated?’

Two costs require attention when reviewing your business gas, and this makes up most of the cost of a business gas quote.

  • Unit rate - this is your business gas charge. This is displayed in pence per kWh of gas used. For example, if your agreed fixed unit rate is 8.2p per kWh and you use 15,000 kWh of gas annually; you can calculate your annual business gas cost by multiplying 0.082 by 15,000 (£1,230). You will need to add additional costs to this figure. Sometimes you can be charged different unit rates depending on the time of day if you have a gas meter that allows this. 

  • Standing charge - a daily fee paid to your business gas supplier for the management costs of delivering the fuel to your premises. Initially, this may seem like a high number, but the costs remain unchanged regardless of how much gas you use. For example, with a standing charge of 30.2p per day, you’ll be paying £116.80 annually.

  • VAT - a flat % standard rate of 20% will be applied to your business gas bill. Discounts are available for charities and non-profits who may be eligible to pay only 5%.

Getting A Commercial Gas Quote

Large businesses are generally those that use over 100,000 kWh of commercial gas every year. Due to this high consumption, businesses can benefit from bespoke prices as a result of bulk-buying wholesale gas. 

With this in mind, comparing prices is a great idea as you can maximise your gas bill’s savings by comparing the large business gas market, and locking in the best deal.

Business Gas Quotes For Small Businesses

What is considered a small business by many is viewed differently by gas suppliers. Split into two categories, small businesses and micro. Micro business gas prices are seen as similar to the domestic market so prices are often similar to the domestic market.

Larger businesses will use more gas and can negotiate a lower price per kWh.

According to Ofgem, a non-domestic consumer is defined as a micro business if it meets one of the following criteria:

  • Employs fewer than 10 employees (or their full-time equivalent) and has an annual turnover or balance sheet no greater than €2 million (£1.7 million as of August 2022), or
  • Uses no more than 100,000 kWh of electricity per year, or
  • Uses no more than 293,000 kWh of gas per year.

The main benefit of being defined as a micro-business rather than a small business is that you can give a termination notice at any time. Typically, it is much easier to manage your business gas usage if you’re a micro business but you do pay higher business gas rates. This is because they usually have similar flexibility to domestic contracts.
