Billing Analysis Case Studies

How much are you being overcharged

Ensuring you are paying the correct amounts on each and every utility bill takes time and resources. Estimated billing and overpayments caused by incorrect tariff charges mean that many organisations are overpaying their utility bills by between 3 and 5% every year.

Typical issues found

  • Incorrect rates used on invoices
  • Rates differing to those agreed at the start of the contract period
  • Charges against incorrect meters
  • Incorrect standing charges.
