Helping Charities Save On Their Utility Bills

Here at The Green Energy Advice Bureau, we pride ourselves on offering professional energy advice to a wide range of businesses across the UK.

Over the years, we have built up outstanding relationships with many energy suppliers meaning that we are able to provide our clients with the most cost-effective rates and discounts which would be unavailable when going to suppliers directly.

We are able to offer our energy services to any business – regardless of size or sector – and work with a number of charitable organizations to help them get the best deal for their utilities.

Potentially thousands of charities across the UK are paying too much for their energy bills because suppliers treat them like small businesses. As such, charities are missing out on energy discounts.

Not-for-profit organizations whose energy is used “otherwise than in the course or furtherance of a business” for at least 60% of use, are entitled to receive all of their energy supply at a reduced rate of 5% VAT.

Charities who have been missing out on this discount with their current supplier, can claim up to four years of back payment. You should expect a rebate from your supplier for the difference between 5% and the standard rate of VAT charged at the time of the bills.

Andrew Parkes, our Portfolio Director who has been dealing with the charity sector for the past 4 years here at The Green Energy Advice Bureau, said: “We understand that, with growing pressures on budgets and funding resources, charities are having to work ever harder to ensure that they have the funds to continue their work. We would urge charities who want to ensure they’re on the best deal to get in touch with the team here at The Green Energy Advice Bureau.”
