    How to compare business gas rates

    Here, at Utility Bidder, we’ve made it really easy to compare business gas prices based on the latest wholesale market rates. Before you start, you’ll just need a few important bits of information:

    • your businesses premise’s postcode
    • your annual gas usage (you can find this on your bill)
    • the name of your current commercial gas supplier

    With them, you’re good to go. Push the ‘compare prices now’ button. We’ll instantly compare prices from more than 20 trusted UK suppliers to bring you a business gas quote bespoke to the requirements of your company.

    What are the latest business gas prices?

    With the volatile nature of the wholesale market over the past 18 months, it’s difficult to provide an exact figure. How much you can expect to pay will also depend on your supplier, contract type and whether you’re eligible to pay the Climate Change Levy (CCL).

    We’ve put together the table below to give you a better idea, based on the average annual gas consumption of similar-sized organisations.

    Business size Annual usage Unit price (per kWh) Daily standing charge (pence) Annual cost
    Micro business 5,000 to 15,000 kWH 8.9p 33.9p £920 (based on annual usage of 10,000kWh)
    Small business 15,000 to 30,000 kWh 8.5p 36.6p £18,131 (based on annual usage of 22,500kWh)
    Medium business 30,000 to 65,000 kWh 8.3p 79.2p £38,328 (based on annual usage of 47,500kWh)
    Large business More than 65,000 kWh 8.4p 55.7p £52,200 (based on annual usage of 65,000kWh)

    Disclaimer: Due to volatility within the energy market, prices can change on an hourly basis meaning that the prices you’re quoted are different from the averages shown. Prices may also vary according to your meter type and business location. Updated May 2024.

    How to renew or switch business gas suppliers?

    The decision of whether to renew or switch business gas suppliers isn’t one you should take lightly. The cheapest business gas rates aren’t always the best choice for your business – especially if you’ve got industry specific requirements.

    You should start by finding out when your contract is up for renewal. We’d recommend making a comparison when your switching window opens (usually between one and six months before your deal ends). You’ll receive your renewal quote around three months before the end of your current deal.

    What if you’re happy with your current supplier? Great, we can still help. As a commercial gas broker, we can negotiate with your current supplier to secure you a better deal that best fits the needs of your company.

    What types of business gas tariffs are available?

    Your rate is fixed for the duration of your contract. You’ll pay more or less depending on how much you use, but the unit rate won’t change – protecting you against wholesale price fluctuations.

    Your per-unit rate will depend on wholesale market prices. If prices rise, you’ll face paying more, but when they fall, you could make a significant saving.

    You’ll typically be placed on an extended deal if your contract has come to an end, and you haven’t decided to switch or renew.

    You’ll purchase all the gas your business needs upfront – this can be beneficial as it gives you access to wholesale market prices. However, due to the upfront costs involved, it’s typically only an option for larger organisations.

    Your bill will be split into fixed unit costs and other variable charges. The fixed element will stay the same for the duration of your contract. The variable element will cover other costs associated with your supply, such as National Grid and Transmission Network usage costs.

    When you fall out of contract, you’ll most likely find yourself on this tariff – it’s often the most expensive one, so should be avoided if possible.

    How is a business gas bill calculated?

    There are two primary factors to bear in mind when making a business gas comparison:

    Unit Price – You’ll pay a rate for each unit (kWh) of gas your business uses. How much you pay will depend on whether you’re on a fixed or variable contract. If your contract is fixed, you’ll pay the same price for every unit for the duration of your contract. If it’s variable, the price could fluctuate depending on wholesale prices.

    Standing Charge – You’ll pay your supplier a daily standing charge to cover the cost of managing and delivering your gas supply.

    Your business size and sector can also have an impact on your business gas quote.

    What our expert says...

    “The UK, and the rest of Europe, are more than on course to meet their 90% full gas storage quota before 1st November. This is providing for some positive sentiment across the markets and aside from a few ups and downs, has seen a relatively flat trading period, potentially providing an ideal time for next contract discussions.

    The UK saw a very mild winter last year, but the build-up to it (due to the unknown of being the first winter without Russian gas reserves) caused panic and concern that drove energy prices across Europe to unprecedented highs.

    We hope to never see such highs again…. but there remains the uncertainty of what this winter will bring… and along with that, what negative connotations this will bring to gas and power prices”
