The switch can take between four to six weeks (21 to 29 working days). However, various elements can affect the timeline, for example, if your business is bound by contract which has not come to an end with the existing supplier, or if your new supplier does not have all the information they require to complete your registration and switch.
Firstly, you will need to find out who currently supplies energy to your new property, then inform the supplier to change the account to your business without agreeing a new contract. Thereafter, get in touch with us and we will happily help you search the business energy market for the best deal available for your business needs.
