These significant increases are affecting millions of people and businesses across the UK, and many are struggling to afford rising costs. If you are in this situation, let us discuss the diverse options you could consider:
If you cannot afford your bills
If you are struggling to pay your energy bill, contact your energy provider as they may be able to set up a payment plan to make your costs more affordable.
In addition to this, you can also contact your supplier and ask for a payment reduction or more time to pay.
Another option you have is to contact the Citizens Advice helpline if you are unable to pay.
If you are in debt with your supplier
If you are in debt with your supplier, you need to contact them immediately to avoid the debt increases further. It is also important to act quickly if you cannot pay as your supplier may disconnect your energy if you do not contact them.
Additionally, you can also contact the Citizens Advice helpline for more information as mentioned above.
You can also contact Money Advice Trust’s Business Debt Line for further information on your business debts if your business is based in England, Wales and Scotland.
