You’re there for others. And we’re here for you.

As a charity, church or other non-profit organisation, your enterprise is often treated as a business by external suppliers and third parties. But while you might operate like a profit making business, we think this doesn’t mean you should be charged like one.

We recognise the importance of your role to the lives of the people and communities you serve. We believe that by saving you unnecessary costs, we play a small part in helping you achieve your objectives.

We work with many of the UK’s leading charities, churches and other not-for-profit organisations. Our experience in this sector enables us to offer a service tailored to the unique nature of your organisation.

Reduced VAT for Charities

Under the Finance Acts 1993 and 1997, if your energy is used “otherwise than in the course of furtherance of a business” for at least 60% of its actual use, then your charity or not-for-profit organisation can receive all its power supply at a reduced rate of 5% VAT, as opposed to the standard rate of 20%.

(Non-business activities are when there is no charge for products or services offered by the charity, or where the income is from a non-business grant or from voluntary donations. Business activities are where goods or services are given in return for payment.)
