6 Unexpected Facts about Business Water Charges

When your business uses water, it’s almost invisible to you and your workers. You’ll not notice when you’re using more water than usual, and you’ll barely notice that this is a resource that your company requires – that is until the water stops running.

Water companies and providers offer clean and clear water to businesses and homes across the UK. They perform a wonderful job – but they can be expensive, especially for firms that use a great deal of water in their industrial processes. This piece looks not at the costs themselves, but at some unexpected facts about the world of water changes in business.

Prices Can Rise

Meanwhile, it’s quite possible that without your noticing your business rates for water are rising in the background, passing through your accounts without you being notified or told. It might not be that utility companies are actively trying to fleece you here – often, water rates will rise as a result of your usage, or alongside inflation.

Nonetheless, it’s well worth getting together with your accountant and seeing exactly how much you’re being charged for your water use. Has it changed in the past few months? Did you receive a letter or email of notification of the price change? If not, you could be due compensation – or an angry call with the utility provider.

3.Water Use Links

If your firm is using a lot of water to perform its business processes, it’s no surprise that the water company will also charge it a lot. The general rule here – for homes and for businesses – is that the more water you use, the more you should search for a fixed-rate utility provider fee so that you’re not charged for overuse on this precious resource.

Meanwhile, and on the other hand, if you feel that your firm is good at saving water, it might be worth being put on a business water meter. This will measure your use of water throughout your office or facility – determining how much you owe the utility company as a result of the figure that it comes up with.

4.You Can Compare Prices

Often, and in different regions of the UK, there is more than one water provider. This means that you’re able – if you so wish – to look at different prices from different water providers. You can also go straight to us at Utility Bidder for tips, advice, and assistance in talking to different utility providers to find the best deal.

With more than two-thirds of UK businesses already paying too much for their business utilities, comparing prices and finding the best deal is an important step in reducing your overheads, saving more cash, and making higher levels of profit as a result.

5. Help is Here

If you’re still confused about how to compare prices on your utilities – or you don’t know how to instal or use a water meter in your firm – it’s worth looking for tips online, or coming straight to our operatives, who are happy to pick up the phone to help you understand your business water charges.

This can be a difficult and opaque area of your business charges to get your head around, and sometimes it pays to spend some time digging and talking to experts to properly understand where your cash is going when you’re paying a water company for the liquid that emerges from your taps each day.

6. Waste Water Costs Too

Remember also that waste water – that is, the water that flows down your drains – is also something that most businesses are charged for. As such, this is yet another area in which you can make huge savings by reducing your water use – and thus your water waste – in the months and years ahead.

There you have it: six unexpected tips about the world of water suppliers and how they charge businesses.
