Utilitas can help your business save money.
Dealing with the consumer en masse, your focus is on running your business to ensure the high level of service your customers deserve. Identifying and managing cost management issues can divert man hours and resources away from your customers.
This is where Utilitas Solutions can help. While you are providing topflight service to your customers, we can be negotiating with your suppliers on your behalf, and looking for other ways to reduce your overheads.
We provide you with quarterly reports, tailored to the level of detail you require, on the areas we manage for you, allowing you more time to focus on your customers, your business and your profits.

Changes to Climate Change Levy (CCL)
The Climate Change Levy (CCL) is an environmental tax on a company's electricity and gas use.
Businesses that pay the standard rate of VAT (20%) are also charged the CCL, although there are exceptions. Those that meet the minimal use requirements and are charged the reduced rate of VAT (5%) don't pay the CCL.
• For electricity, this means using an average of less than 33 kWh per day (1,000 kWh per month)
• For gas, this means using an average of less than 145 kWh per day (4,397 kWh per month)
From 1st April 2019 the government is increasing the rate of CCL; from 0.583 pp kWh to 0.847 pp kWh for Electricity, and from 0.203 pp kWh to 0.339 ppkWh for Natural Gas.
This is an increase of 45% for electricity and 67% for gas. We wanted to make you aware of these changes so that you can plan your budgets accordingly.
With energy prices constantly on the rise this may seem like just more bad news. However, in reality the CCL charge makes up a very small percentage of your overall energy bill.
