Business Gas Tariffs
Choosing the right type of tariff for your business can make a huge difference in how much you’re spending on business gas. Think of a nice suit. Whilst one off the rack can fit most people, for some it would be a much better fit if it was tailored. Selecting your business gas tariff with this mindset could help you maximise your savings.
This is one of the most popular tariffs due to its easy-to-manage pricing structure. On this tariff, your unit rates are locked in for the duration of the contract. This means you’re protected if wholesale prices increase - but it also means you can’t benefit from any possible decrease in rates. Many businesses prefer this tariff as prices could go up or down at any time.
For those more attracted to some risk and flexibility, a variable tariff could be the best fit. You will pay a different unit price per kWh each month depending on a number of factors including wholesale price performance.
Business Gas Prices Per kWh
With business gas prices stabilising in 2023, many are choosing to grab a fixed deal. Nobody can predict future business gas prices as businesses are looking at what they can do for some certainty around their gas bills.
Business gas prices per kWh are impacted by multiple factors including the location of the premises, overall consumption, contract length and wholesale prices. Here’s a snippet example of the annual business gas bill by the supplier from April 2023. For a more accurate quote based on your business’s requirements, you should compare today’s live rates.

How To Read A Business Gas Meter
There are different ways to read a gas meter depending on the type. Whether you have a digital or traditional dial meter, you will read the numbers from left to right. You should ignore any numbers after the decimal point or numbers in red. For a dial meter, you should always choose the lower number if the dial is in between any numbers.
What If I Have Multiple Premises?
You can request a multi-site meter that allows you to consolidate the consumption of multiple buildings onto one account and bill. This makes it much easier to manage your business gas.
What Is A Micro Business?
A micro-business is a term used by suppliers and if you’re classed as one, it comes with a few benefits; including the requirement of receiving renewal notices. You’re classed as a micro business if you employ less than 10 people and have an annual turnover below €2 million, or if you use less than 293,000 kWh of gas per year.
Will I Need A New Gas Meter When I Switch?
In most cases, you do not need to get a new gas meter when you switch. You may want to upgrade to a smart meter or a multi-rate meter if necessary.
What Is An MPRN Number?
Also known as a Meter Point Reference Number, this is a unique number that tells suppliers who the gas supply belongs to. This is so that you are charged the correct amount and not for someone else’s supply.
What If I Have a Bad Credit Score?
The bottom line is that having bad credit does not affect your business's ability to switch gas suppliers. However, you will be restricted and will not get access to the best rates.
Here are some challenges that businesses with a lower credit score may face:
- Access to a smaller amount of gas deals. Prices may change or be withdrawn if you are deemed a higher risk.
- You will have access to a smaller number of business gas suppliers.
- Prices may be higher.
It’s not all bad news. Many other factors come into play in addition to business credit scores. Business gas prices are based on the size of your business, the industry, annual consumption and many other considerations.
Suppliers often take your Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) number into consideration. This assesses a large amount of statistical and economic data. SIC classifies some sectors as having higher risks than others. The more uncertainty surrounding the industry, the more cautious suppliers will be.
