Business Energy Costs Post-Brexit

With the UK set to leave the EU at the end of March, Manchester-based business energy switching company Switch My Business is urging UK businesses to take immediate action to find a better energy deal and to secure your energy prices to avoid post-Brexit volatility.
With only weeks to go until the UK officially leaves the EU, there is mounting evidence that energy prices will become increasingly volatile and are likely to rise significantly post-Brexit.
The UK is dependent on energy imports from the EU. Over 40% of our gas supply comes from European pipelines, while 5%-6% of our electricity comes from France, Holland and Ireland, leaving us vulnerable to increased pricing post-Brexit. Last month a House of Lords committee warned that trading outside of the EU’s internal energy market would be less efficient than trading inside it, with the result that businesses and households could be forced to pay more.
Regardless of whether the UK leaves with a deal or not, there are mounting concerns that energy prices will increase following the March 29, 2019 deadline.
Commenting, Stephen Henry, Chief Operating Officer at Switch My Business stated: “Whatever the final deal the UK manages to obtain to leave the EU, the end result is that we are likely to be peripheral to EU energy markets, which is likely to lead to higher prices and more unreliable supply.”
“Brexit is clearly a cause of concern for many businesses; we have seen a marked increase in customers switching energy suppliers to find a better deal and also an increased desire to secure prices, typically with three-year contracts”
While there is still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding Brexit, for most businesses, there is a simple way to ensure that you save money and protect against future rising costs. Switching energy supplier saves the average business £1,270 but finding the best deal can be complicated and time-consuming. With more than 15% difference between the top 20 electricity deals and almost 50% difference between the top 20 gas prices for the average UK business, companies need to work with a trusted partner to help them secure the right deal.
Switch My Business is the UK’s most trusted energy broker on Trustpilot with a score of 9.8/10 from over 1,500 reviews and have saved customers more than £55m with more than 43,000 meters successfully switched.

Professional and relatable
"I’m always nervous about speaking to companies as a small business because I’ve been taken advantage of more than once and ended up with huge bills. I spoke to Cheryl today who switched my commercial bills over for me and saved me an amazing amount. She was great, professional and thorough without making me switch off with her great sense of humour. The deal she got me was also brilliant. Thank you Cheryl I will be recommending you in future"This review was posted by Emma on the 18th of September 2019
