About Business Gas
- Gas is an essential part of many of Britain’s businesses, whether it is to power a commercial kitchen, or simply to heat your shop.
- There are some differences in the way that your business gas differs from the gas you use at home, which can make the process of switching seem more complex.
- The contract you’re offered will depend entirely on your business’s circumstances and consumption habits.
- No two business’s gas contracts will be identical, but Make It Cheaper are here to help you make sense of it all. And, Do It For You will keep you on the best deal year after year.

How to get the best business gas prices
Before you run a commercial gas comparison, it’s worth making sure you know a little more about what goes in to making up your bill. Your business gas bill will show a breakdown of costs, including things like VAT and any government imposed levies, but the two you need to pay most attention to are:
- Standing charge - a daily cost that your business will pay regardless of how much energy it uses. The unit cost is a set cost for each unit (kWh) of energy your business uses.
- Unit cost - a set cost for each unit (kWh) of energy your business uses.
If you want a more detailed look at what goes to make up your bill, check out our Business energy bill guide.
How much you pay as a business will differ depending on the terms of your contract - commercial energy contracts are set at a fixed rate for a fixed period of time, meaning it’s vital you get the best-priced deal for your business.
If you tie your business into an expensive tariff, you could be paying too much for your gas and electricity for the next few years. If need a bit of guidance on the business gas prices currently available, check out the table below:
Business gas prices and rates
|Business size||Average annual usage||Average price (per kWh)||Standing charge (daily)||Average annual price|
|Micro business||5,000 – 15,000 kWh||4,1p - 4.5p||23p - 26p||£300 - £700|
|Small business||15,000 – 30,000 kWh||3.8p - 4p||21p - 22p||£800 - £1,400|
|Medium business||30,000 – 50,000 kWh||3.5p - 3.7p||18p - 20p||£1,500 - £2,000+|
When deciding which quote best suits your business, you may well opt for supplier offering the cheapest rates. But basing your decision solely on price could leave you on a cheap contract with inadequate supply and a substandard after sales care, which could end up costing you more in the long run.
Our business energy experts can help you find the best deal for your business, at the best price – give us a call now on 0800 970 077, or leave your details at the bottom of the page and we’ll give you a call back.

About business gas suppliers
Not every supplier available on the commercial gas market offers both fuels to their customers. You may find that your supplier can’t supply you both fuels, so you may look to secure business gas and business electricity with different suppliers.
When comparing quotes, the supplier can be a big deciding factor for many business owners, behind price. Whereas all suppliers essentially supply gas in the same way, the level of customer service and after sales care get differ greatly from supplier to supplier. It’s important to consider the level of after sales care that you will receive in the event that something happens with your supply, because you will need to resolve the issue quickly so you can continue trading.
Not sure which supplier is going to be the best match for you? Our experts can guide you through the features and services of each supplier to ensure you fully understand each to make the best possible switching decision for your business.
