Notice to terminate contracts
All business electricity and gas users are required to terminate their current contracts before switching to a new one. If you don't terminate your contract, you'll be "rolled over" on increased rates.
Your current deal will stipulate when you must give notice of your intent to terminate - generally up to 90 days before your contract end date. Once you've completed the termination process, you're then free to get quotes and change to a new pricing structure.

Guide to the termination process and provider addresses
By terminating your contract, you won't literally cut off your supply, you'll just terminate your current rates. You'll need the following information to send to your current provider:
- Your meter number (found on your current bill).
- Your current supplier (also on your bill).
- Your premises supply address and company name.
Remember to serve notice according to your agreement. You should receive an acknowledgement of your letter within 14 days.
