Your Business With James Caan 2017 - 15
How can I "go green"?
Going green can definitely help your bottom
line. LED lighting is just one way to improve
your energy efficiency, saving you money along
the way. Changing all your old fluorescent
tubes to longer-lasting, efficient LED lighting
can cut electricity lighting costs by up to 70%.
Who can help?
Looking for business energy prices is very
different from finding an energy supplier for
your home. Business prices aren't published
in the same way, so unless you know exactly
what you're looking for, it's best to ask for help.
Lumina Energy works with over 20
trusted suppliers from the "big six" to smaller,
independent energy companies, and our
service is free to use with no obligation.
Our energy experts understand the energy
bills you receive from suppliers. They can
look at your current bill, explain the charges,
recommend ways to cut your costs and search
the market for you. So give us a call today.

What is best: �ixed or �lexible?
Depending on your requirements and strategy
for risk, there are both fixed and flexible pricing
options to consider. A fixed price provides
your business with long-term price certainty,
allowing you to plan your energy spend
accordingly. However, energy prices on a
fixed rate are often considered to be higher.
Flexible pricing allows you to benefit
when energy market prices fall, but equally
adds an element of risk if they were to rise.
Why does my VAT status
matter to my energy bill?
If you pay the standard rate of VAT, you'll be
subject to the Climate Change Levy (CCL).
This is an environmental tax designed to
encourage your business to be more energy
efficient and reduce greenhouse emissions.
It's also important your VAT status is
correctly logged with your energy supplier.
"I work with a number of charities and care
homes who don't realise they are eligible for
reduced rate VAT," says Daniel Prior, energy
consultant at Lumina Energy. "With some
quick, simple advice, I've helped many of them
apply for reduced VAT. The most I've been able
to save a single customer was over £10,000
from historical billing."
