How do I get a refund if I'm in credit?

If you pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit your account may be in credit at certain times. You can request this back at any time. Leaving the credit where it is means you will have enough for the winter months when you may use more energy.

How do I submit a VAT declaration?

Download the VAT declaration form and send it to the address on the form. We can backdate VAT declarations and Climate Change Levy exemptions for four years.

Why is VAT calculated at 5% on some bills and 20% on others?

If you use 33 electricity units or more per day and 145 kilowatts of gas or more per day, you pay 20%.
If you use less than this you pay 5%.
