British Gas – No Pubs, Clubs, Bars & Restaurents – 05/06/2020


Due to the current Covid-19 crisis and the impact on certain business types, we are no longer accepting acquisition contracts for pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants (including café/coffee shops) from Monday 8th June 2020. British Gas has over four thousand bars & restaurant customers, many of which have looked to us for additional support over the last three months. We know this is an extremely tough time for the industry however, as a result of the additional support we’re already giving, we’re unable to take on new customers in similar circumstances for now. The restrictions apply to new acquisitions where we do not already have a relationship with the customer. If a customer has an existing relationship with us and wants to bring an additional site over, we will accept the sale subject to a standard credit check carried out by British Gas.

British Gas will now be capping commission on registered Charities.

The new uplifts will be 2p for Electricity and 1p for Gas across all terms

Please ensure you are taking this into consideration when selecting uplift for Registered Charities. If you select a higher uplift than 2p for Electricity and 1p for Gas, the contract commission amount will only be paid to 2p for Electricity and 1p for Gas.

We are contesting this change but this is an immediate adjustment and if you do sell a contract over the above caps we will submit the contract however it may be rejected and we may require the contract to be re-priced on the correct uplift.
