To keep your charity running efficiently, it is important that energy outgoings are analysed to see where savings can be made, but where do you start?
Energy can be a substantial outgoing for businesses and with the cost of both gas and electricity on the rise, it is important now more than ever to thoroughly investigate how to reduce energy expenditure.
Every penny counts for charities, which is why it’s so important to make as many savings as possible. Charities pay VAT on all standard-rated goods and services they buy from VAT-registered businesses. They pay VAT at a reduced rate (5%) or the ‘zero rate’ on some goods and services
Your charity pays 5% VAT on fuel and power if they’re for:
• Residential accommodation (A children’s home or care home for the elderly)
• Charitable non-business activities (A free daycare for the disabled)
• Small-scale use (up to 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month or a delivery of 2,300 liters of gas oil)
• If less than 60% of the fuel and power is for something that qualifies, you’ll pay the reduced rate of VAT on the qualifying part and the standard rate (20%) on the rest.
Qualifying fuel and power include gases, electricity, oils and solid fuels (e.g. coal). It does not include vehicle fuel.

Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service
I have just worked with Alex from Utility Bidder to sort our electricity contract today. He has got us an excellent price for our charity and it has all been sorted in half an hour (possibly less!). He was extremely helpful. THANK YOU
Had a call from Alex York who within minutes had arranged a new electricity contract with a new supplier. He was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
Robert Johnson has just completed my renewal contract with my energy supplier. He was very helpful and very efficient. It’s the first time I have used Utility Bidder and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them. Thank you for making it so easy.
