    Prompt Payment Discount

    • Answer
    • If you pay your bill in full within 14 days, you can look forward to:

      Gas customers:

      • get a discount off your next quarter's consumption charges of 1.7% up to a maximum of £3.25 (inc VAT) per bill.

      Electricity customers:

      • get a discount off your next quarter's consumption charges of 3.3% up to a maximum of £3.75 (inc VAT) per bill.

      Your Prompt Payment Discount carries over from bill to bill. So, if you pay your first one in full within 14 calendar days, you get money off your next bill. But you've got to keep the momentum going - if you don't pay your second bill on time, you won't qualify for a discount on your third bill.
