Energy suppliers guilty of bill inaccuracies

A report by the uSwitch website has revealed that energy supplies in the UK are still sending out inaccurate bills to many households up and down the country. It is believed that 30% of households in the UK have received an inaccurate bill over the last two years while 17% have received an inaccurate bill on more than one occasion. When you also consider that 43% of UK households have ended up with unexpected payment demands from energy suppliers it does not reflect very well on the sector as a whole.

It has to be said that not all energy supplies in the UK have such a bad record with regards to billing inaccuracies but there is no doubt it is still a problem for many people in the UK. Unexpected bills, especially where customers pay fixed monthly payments throughout the year, can often squeeze household budgets and place significant financial pressure on many families. When you bear in mind the increase in the cost of energy in the UK over the last few years many unexpected bills have run into hundreds of pounds.

While the system of estimated bills is slowly but surely being replaced across the UK this is a major problem for many people and makes it difficult to budget for the year as a whole.
