Utility Helpline Brokerage Services
There is no cost or obligation to obtain a price comparison or ask for some advice from Utility Helpline. However, by agreeing a contract via our service, you are accepting that your chosen supplier may then pay Utility Helpline a fee or commission for the introduction & managing the transfer process. Depending on the supplier, the current industrywide mechanism used for remuneration from suppliers to energy brokers/consultants is an “uplift commission fee”, which may be included in the price we offer by way of an uplift within your unit cost for energy.
The commission we receive from each provider pays for the service we offer, which include ongoing support, bill checking (if required), query management, dispute resolution, advice and renewal management etc.
By way of an example, we may secure a price for 11.5p/kwh and then add 0.3 p/kwh. This would then make the price 11.8 p/kwh. The uplift does depend on your energy usage and spend, length of contract, credit risk etc and we keep it below the industry average.
Example: a client using 10,000 kwh would spend £1180 on energy per annum based on the example above. We would therefore receive £30 commission per annum. This commission allows us to continue to offer our services.
Average commisisons are between £10 to £400 per annum per meter.
We operate a strict policy to recommend suppliers based on price, service and suitability to our client’s needs. We work with a select panel of the UK’s leading business energy suppliers. This gives us access to the majority of market’s business energy suppliers’ prices (November 2020), which allows us to be highly competitive and offer a full range of services to suit any business’s needs.
