Switching electricity and gas suppliers is actually quite a straightforward process, but it can be time-consuming. This is because to find the best business power supplier, you need to contact each supplier for an individual, bespoke quote. Or you can let our energy experts do all the hard work for you, to save time and money.
Negotiation plays an important role in any business energy switch, as suppliers don’t always publish all their rates on business gas and electricity comparison sites. But don’t let this put you off - from a financial standpoint alone, the benefit of switching gas and electricity suppliers for business vastly outweighs the effort involved if you let us compare business energy providers on your behalf. This is especially true for business energy customers who have inadvertently found themselves on uncompetitive ‘rollover’, ‘deemed’ or ‘out of contract’ rates, something that can easily happen if you don’t keep an eye on your renewal dates.
You can compare business electricity tariffs and switch to a new deal in just five simple steps:
- Step 1 - Pop your postcode in the box at the top of the page.
- Step 2 - Our experts compare deals from a range of suppliers.
- Step 3 - You choose the deal that best suits your needs and budget.
- Step 4 - We’ll let old and new suppliers know you’re switching.

When you switch business gas and power with Uswitch for Business, we can keep an eye on your renewal dates and automatically find the best deal for your business to ensure you never overpay again.
Usually, switching business electricity and gas suppliers is quick and problem-free, but there are instances when your switch can get rejected. There is usually a simple explanation for this, usually that you have an outstanding debt owed to your old supplier, but there may be other issues. Our business energy experts can offer guidance with any issues you might encounter.
While comparison sites can help you to benchmark prices, gathering and analysing quotes from different gas and electricity business suppliers takes time. As a general rule, you should aim to try and compare quotes for upwards of 10 business energy companies to be sure your company is getting the best deal on the market. This is where an expert business energy broker such as Uswitch for Business can help. We can do the legwork by gathering and comparing energy quotes from a whole range of gas and electricity suppliers for business on your company’s behalf.
