Reducing the price of business gas is one of the quickest ways to reduce monthly outgoings. For many businesses, business gas is crucial to the operation of the business. 

Many UK businesses often don’t realise that it’s quite rare for a business gas supplier to offer dual fuel deals, often leaving gas on expensive out of contract rates. Whilst you have to process the switch separately, it is a good idea to align your business energy fuel switches to coincide at the same time. Switching gas and electricity at the same time will save you both time and money from starting the process twice.

It can be difficult for your business to know how much your business gas bills should cost. This often results in businesses remaining on expensive gas tariffs.

The exact cost of your business gas tariff will vary depending on a number of factors including:

  • Your business location
  • The size of your premises
  • Your current energy supplier
  • Your current business gas spend
  • Your current business gas consumption
  • Your meter type

Here we’ve broken down the average business gas prices by business size.

Business Size Price per kWh
Very Small/Micro Business 3.82p
Small 2.19p

The rules for business energy suppliers are different from those for domestic suppliers. Business energy suppliers are only required to provide micro businesses with renewal letters. This means that if businesses don’t stay on top of their renewal dates, they could be left on uncompetitive rates.

If your business hasn’t switched suppliers for a few years, you may be overpaying for your business gas. The easiest way to find out if you’re overpaying is to run a business gas comparison.

What makes up my Business Gas Bill?

Once the factors above have been taken into account, your business gas prices will be broken down into two main charges. These are your unit rate (or price per kWh) and standing charges.

Your unit rate is how much you are charged for each unit of energy you use. This is charged in pence per kWh. Average business gas rates per kWh in 2021 is 2.058 pence per kWh.

Your standing charge is a set daily fee. This is paid regardless of how much energy you have used that day. A standing charge covers the cost of your provider supplying energy to your business.

You should also take into account the effect of taxes on your business gas bill. Businesses are required to pay VAT at a higher rate of 20%. On top of this, businesses must pay the Climate Change Levy (CCL). This is an environmental tax which is added to your bill.

It’s important to consider all costs before switching business gas. A tariff with a lower unit rate and a high standing charge could cost you more in the long term. Our team will work with you to take all this into consideration when finding the best business gas deal for you.

How to Choose the Right Business Gas Tariff

It’s important to consider your business needs before comparing business gas prices. Think about the way your business consumes energy. This could be how much energy you use, the type of energy you use, or when your business consumes energy.

If your business operates seasonally, a no standing charge tariff could offer the best savings. With a no standing charge tariff, you won’t be charged any fees when you are not using your business gas.

Large businesses who consume more than 200,000 kWh of gas a year can often access exclusive deals. Due to the amount of energy used, large businesses need to access tariffs tailored to their needs. At Business Electricity Prices, we have a large business team who are specialists in finding great deals for high energy consumption customers.

For small and micro business, controlling costs will often be vital. Several business gas suppliers offer deals specifically targeted to small businesses. These can include tariffs with a fully online service to reduce overheads and costs.

Business Gas Prices FAQs

  • When is the best time to switch business gas suppliers?

    You must be aware of your contract end date to avoid large penalties. However, you can lock-in prices during your renewal window. This window often opens 12 months before the end of your business gas contract. 

  • What if my business has more than one building?

    If your business operates across multiple locations, some suppliers may offer you a discount on your energy use.

    Our expert team can help you consolidate your billing and reduce your business gas costs if you have a multi-site business.

  • Do I have to pay a standing charge on my business gas?

    It is possible to get a contract for your business with no standing charge. This is not always the cheapest option due to higher unit prices, but it could be beneficial if your usage is low. For example, this could be a suitable choice for a business that closes during weekends or only runs seasonally.
