Energy Bill Validation for Businesses

Ignite Energy helps businesses throughout the UK with Utility Bill Validation and Support

It is crucial for large businesses to audit and validate energy bills constantly in order to ensure that you are only paying for energy that you have used. 

Large multi-site businesses are almost always overpaying for energy with commercial bill errors far too common. When you have thousands and even hundreds of thousands of sites, with meters in various buildings, energy bills get complicated and errors occur.

Invoices are issued late or not at all, and often contain erroneous site, meter, consumption and/or cost information. Inaccurate energy bills can occur for a number of reasons and add up to substantial financial costs. 

Our utility bill validation service is the most comprehensive available. It has helped us recover millions of pounds in aggregate for our customers through detection and bill error resolution.

Utility Bill Validation Method

Ignite follows a rigorous bill validation process that ensures every element of your invoices are checked and any discrepancies are quickly identified and resolved. We check your energy bills against actual consumption and correct any errors as quickly as possible. 

We firmly believe that our commercial bill validation service is the most comprehensive available. Our business energy bill analysis is based on years of experience across various industries – we have a comprehensive understanding of utility contracts and all charges, and work from actual and accurate data to make sure your bill is correct. 

There can be over a dozen different charge types on a typical commercial electricity bill for various pass through costs calculated in different ways. The aim of our service is to ensure billing accuracy so that you only ever pay the correct amount at the correct time for the delivered electricity, gas, heat and meter services. 

Offering energy bill validation for business and expert support, our bill validation services include:

  • Calculation of charges / accruals / finance reporting for sites, and for departments / the business at a summary level
