We specialise in outsourced procurement - we help companies to minimise expenditure across a range of areas, including energy, telecoms, waste, water and office supplies. By driving down running costs, we enable owners and investors to increase profitability and grow the value of their assets.

Our client list encompasses a diverse range of organisations, and we have an impressive track-record of delivering savings for a number of high-performing companies, including Build-A-Bear and Strutt & Parker.

We are confident we could deliver a significant positive impact to the bottom line of most of your UK based portfolio companies.

  • Energy 12% - 20%
  • Waste 30% - 50%
  • Stationery 23% - 36%
  • Photocopying 22% - 38%

Changes to Climate Change Levy (CCL)28 Mar 2019

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.
