Your business now has a choice of water suppliers. Make sure you’re getting the best service and price for your water. Our team can offer all the advice and support you need to find the right tariff for your business.
For a long time, businesses were not able to choose where they got their water from. This changed in 2017 when the English water market was deregulated. In other words, it’s become open to competition.
Much like the energy market, the water sector is monitored by a regulatory authority, in this case, Ofwat. Businesses, charities and the public sector now have a choice of water suppliers, allowing non-households to benefit from this competition.
We’ll never convince you to make a switch that’s not right for you. Our team can make independent recommendations to help you get the most from your supplier.
Increased competition between water suppliers brings multiple benefits to consumers, including lower charges, improved value for money and better customer service. By switching suppliers, you could see a 40% reduction in your water bills, saving your business money.
At Tariff.com, we want every business to benefit from lower water bills. That’s why we’ll provide you with all the information, comparisons and switching support you need to find a water supplier that suits your business.
Your business or organisation now has a choice of water provider. If you’re unhappy with your current price or service, you can switch to a different water supplier.

Our consultants will carry out a water audit to analyse your water bills and determine if you’re being overcharged. We’ll then use our findings to reduce your spending and help you take control of your water bills.
We can also carry out a water use survey for your business or organisation to estimate your overall water usage. Our team will present a detailed report to you, alongside our recommendations to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
What to expect from us
Since businesses cater to more people and are often larger than households, their water bills tend to be higher. But that doesn’t mean that businesses are charged more for their water. In fact, businesses tend to get a cheaper rate on their water rates. But why?
In 2017, the water market was deregulated for non-household premises in England and Scotland. This means that businesses, charities, and organizations can choose their water supplier and switch to a cheaper tariff to save money. There are a lot of factors that go into calculating your water bills. Competing suppliers can set their own charges to offer a cheaper price to business customers.
All businesses have to pay water bills. And your water bills are comprised of a standard set of charges. Here are some of the standard rates your water suppliers use:
If you’re looking to save money on your business water, our team can compare your water rates for you. We’ll review your current water bills and collect tailored quotes from the 17 water retailers we work with. You can then choose the best price & package for your business and budget.
After we’ve compared suppliers and you’ve decided to make the switch, we’ll help to change you over to your new water provider. We’ll liaise with your current and new suppliers, helping to complete the necessary paperwork and onboarding process on your behalf. We’ll then agree on a switching date with your current water provider.
The cheapest water suppliers in both countries will depend on a number of factors. In Scotland, there are 7 different charges to consider: Potable water standing charge, potable water metering charge, wastewater standing charge, wastewater volumetric charge, surface water drainage, highways drainage and foul sewage and trade effluent.
In England, 11 regional companies provide water and water services and they all have different ways of charging. Your business will have to pay this charge plus a variable retail fee. If you want to find the cheapest provider for your business, get in touch with Tariff.com today.
Whilst you can compare your water service at any time, you can only switch your provider when your contract with your current supplier ends. We will check the end date of your fixed-term contract and start arranging your switch up to three months in advance of your end date.
Water regulations apply in England and Wales to all plumbing systems, water fittings and equipment, to protect your water supply from contamination. Your water supplier is responsible to the Government for the enforcement of the regulations, they have the right to assess your premises to ensure your water fittings comply.
Businesses now have a choice of water supplier and don’t have to settle for their regional provider. By comparing and switching suppliers, you could see a 40% reduction in your water bills, experience better customer service and benefit from value-added service.
Like most things, water prices will increase over time. This additional cost is often used to maintain and operate the water network. Every year in April, Ofwat, the regulatory body for water, adjusts the underlying wholesale rate to compensate for these costs. To limit any price increase, you can compare and switch suppliers with Tariff.com.
