About Business Gas MPRNs


What is an MPRN?

An MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number) is a number unique to your business’s gas supply. When organising energy tariffs, your MPRN number is used by energy suppliers to identify your business gas meter and to help provide accurate energy quotes.

What will business gas suppliers do with my MPRN?

Your MPRN provides gas suppliers with your Profile Class which helps to signify how much energy you are likely to use within a 24 hour period.

We at SwitchMyBusiness.com also use your MPRN to provide accurate gas quotes for your business, so we can find you the best business energy rates for your usage.

To find out more about Profile Classes and what each class means, please see our MPAN page.

Where can I find my MPRN?

Your MPRN can be found on a business gas bill. Meter Point Reference Numbers are typically six to ten digits long and printed on the first page, or the back of the front page of your business gas bill.

Be careful not to confuse your MPRN with your business gas supplier account number or meter serial number as this may present issues when searching for business gas quotes.

Your MPRN number is a six to ten digit number which should appear similar to the one below:

Meter point reference:- 0123456789

What if I can’t see my MPRN?

You may not be able to see your MPRN on your gas bill, or you may have recently moved business premises – in this case, you can call the UK’s Central Data Service Provider XOSERVE’s M Number helpline on 0870 608 1524 and they will be able to help find your MPRN number.

If you can’t find your business’s MPRN then we may still be able to provide you with business gas quotes using your gas meter serial number.

However, so we can provide you with more accurate gas quotes and complete your energy supply switch, we will require your MPRN.

If you still require help with your business’s Meter Point Reference Number, or you’d like a business gas quote, SwitchMyBusiness.com is happy to help. Simply give us a call on 0800 411 8830, or you can request a callback through our online form today.
