Business Contract Claims

Business Contract Claims

Business Contract Claims is a leading investigatory platform, with a dedicated team of industry experts who can help you recover thousands of pounds from mis-sold energy contracts and general incorrect charges from suppliers over the last 4 years.

Businesses such as yourself, working in the Care Sector are organisations which are often exempt from certain charges, that are automatically added onto your business’ bills. These could include:

  • Climate Change Levy
  • Water Rebates
  • Mis-Sold Energy Claims

In 2001, a Climate Change Levy was introduced as an energy tax payable by all businesses. Although the levy was introduced for all businesses, certain organisations, such as those in the Care Sector, qualify for relief.

If rainwater drains from your property into a public sewer, you will be charged for surface water drainage through your sewerage bill. Organisations in the Care Sector are exempt from Surface Water Drainage charges. If eligible, you will be exempt from future water charges and could claim a partial refund for the money that you have previously paid towards these charges.

Energy Brokers liaise with suppliers to procure commercial gas and electric contracts. They are required to disclose the amount of commission they earn from their contracts to their clients; however, a large percentage of Energy Brokers do not do this. This is a form of mis-selling, and your business could be entitled to reclaim the commission paid.

Alongside this, Energy Brokers may have agreed on a contract without your authorisation that was not suitable for your business needs, such as pass-through contracts and standard contracts. Through our investigation we can determine whether you are due a rebate for any form of mis-sold energy.

At Business Contract Claims we are committed to helping National Care Association members claim back any expenses that they could be entitled to, due to mis-sold business expenses. If you believe you are eligible for a claim, please begin by contacting us. From there we will arrange a free, one-to-one consultation to discuss and determine whether you qualify for a rebate, with an experienced member of the team at Business Contract Claims. If you are eligible, our team will be in touch to go through the process and any additional requirements necessary to complete and process your claim. All information given during the consultation will always remain private and confidential.

This allowed for more time to focus on caring for the residents in the family’s own care home. Soon after, through word of mouth, other local care homes began using our system. In 2008 we released our first software nationally and have continued finding new solutions.

Care management software makes recording and managing your care easier by improving efficiency and simplifying day-to-day tasks. Visit our website to download a free sample care plan or request a demo. Our friendly account managers, support staff and trainers are standing by to help!
