What is my MPR number and where do I find it?


In order to find you accurate business gas prices we will need your Meter Point Reference (MPR) Number or MPRN so it’s good idea if you know what it is and where to find it.

What is an MPRN?

MPRN stands for Meter Point Reference Number and is a unique reference number which, like the Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN), is specific to your property. All properties in the UK supplied with gas will have an MPRN and it stays the same even if your supplier changes.

Where is my MPRN?

Your MPRN will be on your business gas bill. Usually business gas suppliers print the number on the first page of your bill or on the back of the front page. It’s easy to confuse your MPRN with your gas supplier account number or the meter serial number – these are very different.

Your MPR Number is a long number between six and ten digits similar to the one below:

Meter point reference:- 0123456789

How to find an MPRN

If you’ve just moved into a property and you can’t find your MPRN on your bill, then you can call XOSERVE’s MPR Number helpline – 0870 6081524. XOSERVE was previously known as Transco.

In the event that you don’t have your MPRN then we may be able to provide you with some gas prices using your gas meter serial number.

Like the MPAN, it helps if you have this number so that we can provide you with an accurate quote. But again, as with the MPAN, this number alone can’t be used to switch your energy supply.

If you have any other questions about your MPR number or you’d like a business gas quote, give us a call on 0330 0100 251 (or request a call back using our form).

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
