For many years, this simple (albeit inexact) approach yielded results that satisfied most businesses’ requirements. However, market deregulation in the 1990s and ever-rising price volatility have rendered this approach obsolete. In short, close enough is no longer good enough. In recent years, sourcing and risk management strategies have become more sophisticated, so this must also be reflected in businesses’ budgeting and tracking processes.
If you find that time is critical for you and your organisation, we can manage this system on your behalf and provide comprehensive reports for you. We tailor the reports as per your business, department, ledger code, location, utility type, invoicing and accrual schedule, financial planning and asset management needs.
We manage all queries between the energy/water/waste management suppliers and your organisation to a full resolution, with as little involvement from you as possible. We sort out debt and credit management on your accounts, billing consolidation for more savings, payment allocations, contract transfers, etc.
We save money on your business energy bills if you are eligible for VAT exemption. Some businesses are eligible to pay VAT at a reduced rate of 5%. If you manage residential properties such as care homes, student accommodation, charity space, free schools/academy, caravan parks, or your businesses is using less than 4,397 kWh/month of gas or 1,000 kWh/month of electricity, talk to us.
If you qualify for a VAT reduction, it is likely your business also stands to be exempt from the main Climate Change Levy (CCL) rate. CCL encourages energy efficiency and urges reduced gas emissions for businesses.
We can manage your compliance with carbon and energy legislation. Our consultants use their expertise and connections with external industry-leading partners to achieve compliance, for example with ESOS and DECs.
CCA: Climate Change Agreements are meant for energy-intensive industry sectors. Businesses are incentivised to reduce their energy consumption for a discounted rate of CCL.
According to a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA), “Energy efficiency is the world’s most important ‘fuel’”. But to become energy, water and waste efficient, you need know what you consume, why and where. In other words, you need to know your cost-consumption-CO2 profile and the costs connected to it.
We provide you with simple yet effective reports on your water, gas and electricity usage for energy efficiency, reduction of carbon output, and overall Energy Management within your organisation.
