Price comparison website switchmybusiness.com has found, after a survey that 18.4% of small businesses have been rolled over onto a new energy contract by energy providers without their permission. Nearly one third of those surveyed had been placed on a ‘deemed contract’, where a business will continue to use energy from the same supplier after the fixed term contract ends. One in six surveyed were uncertain about the status of their energy contract and half stated that they had problems understanding it. Approximately 25% of respondents were confused about how to end their current business contract.
