Renewals

British Gas will accept a renewal up to 365 days prior to the current contract end date. There is no need to serve termination if renewing with British Gas.

Termination

Termination can be logged at any point from the contract start date up until 30 days before the contract end date. Terminations served after this point will be accepted and free to leave 30 days from that date.

If a renewal contract is not agreed the customer will be moved on to a rolling variable price plan which requires 30 day termination notice.

If termination is served and the site remains with British Gas after contract end date the customer will be moved onto out of contract rates which are significantly higher.

Credit & Business Acceptance

British Gas combine their credit risk assessments with Experian reports and CAIS data which is a shared database of credit history maintained by Experian. 

British Gas accept domestic supplies providing that proof of business can be provided upon request.

British Gas do not credit check their renewals, however they will take account history into consideration when processing the contract.

If a contract fail’s credit check with BG, we can use other supplies which are currently live for a minimum of 6 months to support this application, however this does not guarantee acceptance.
