Utility Audits

Electricity and gas suppliers are notorious for errors in billing and every year suppliers generate thousands of inaccurate bills. The problem is that most businesses don't know if their billing is accurate and they have no way to check. What's more, most can't be sure they are even on the best tariff for their needs.

As many as 1 in 5 supply sites have been billed incorrectly and our Historical Audit Service looks at past billing, over a 4 year period and the audit covers an in-depth review of all tariffs & charging structures.

In the last 6 months alone we've identified over £35,000 of billing errors for local businesses & charities and we retain a 100% success record in securing refunds where there is a billing dispute. Our fees are structured on a contingent basis so there is no upfront cost to our work.
