As Business Rates Soar, Energy Savings Are Vital to Keep Profits Hot Says Utility Saving Expert

CHELTENHAM, Gloucestershire, April 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- There are 5.4 million SMEs in the United Kingdom, and 5.4 million Business Rate bills that are rising, year on year. It's a tax no business can either control or avoid, leaving owners scratching their heads about other ways to save their hard-earned revenue.

But, now, business energy costs should be the least of their worries. Since its launch in 2014, has forged a stellar reputation for its socially-conscious and ethical comparison service. While most know the company for their home, car, life and business insurance – they also offer comparisons and switching options for all types of business energy.

"We urge every business to visit us, spend thirty seconds plugging their information into our simple online form, and discover if they really are getting the best deal," explains Chris Richards, one of the nation's most renowned social entrepreneurs. "We can compare business gas, electricity and dual fuel and, if someone finds out that their current provider isn't providing the best possible deal, we can help them switch in just minutes."

Continuing, "The goal is to ensure every business can use savings in their utilities to offset the high cost of their business rates. Ironically, as taxes go up, we are confident we can find ways to ensure hose energy bills go down! Typically, businesses use far more energy than homes, so a saving of even a few percentage points can translate to hundreds of pounds."

Comparing at is extremely simple, with everything handled by a short online form, and the entire process taking a little under two minutes. It's all part of the company's goal to become a single portal for comparison, switching and savings across all types of utility and insurance products.

And it's not all for profit either; the company upholds its socially-conscious mandate by donating 10% of all profits to causes supporting the fight against fuel poverty.

About the Company:

Utility Saving Expert was established in 2014 by social entrepreneur Chris Richards drawing on his experience with third sector not-for-profit organisations, specialising in helping people in debt with Local Authorities. Recognising that the majority of people helped were spending significant amounts on their utility bills, Chris wanted to do something to reduce the burden of unnecessarily high utility bills.

Utility Saving Expert started life as an energy comparison site however, strong positive feedback from those using the site showed there was a demand to expand the site into a more comprehensive price comparison website, focusing on areas where savings could be made.

With a strong social background, many of the users of our site are referred to us by Housing Associations, Charities, and even Councils to help our clients get better deals on everything from energy to life insurance.
