At Source for Business, great customer service is very important to us. However, there may be times when we do not meet the high standards we aim to achieve. If this happens, we would like you to tell us. Our Code of Practice on Complaints takes you through the steps you can take.

We take an independent view of complaints but will use an arbitrator if we feel a complaint or a complainant can benefit from one.

As part of our investigation into any written complaint, we may request a site visit or further information to help us draw our conclusions. We will endeavour to resolve the complaint to your satisfaction by offering the following solutions as appropriate:

  • An apology,
  • An explanation,
  • Remedial action, and
  • Compensation where remedial action is not possible or is insufficient to deal with the complaint.

  • Fixing your retail tariff for up to five years will protect you against inflation and you'll also benefit from loyalty discounts.
  • By signing up, your rates will immediately change, which means you'll be saving money straight away.
  • If you have multiple properties, you can combine them all and receive one, simple to understand bill rather than separate bills for each premises.
  • We will only charge you for the services you use when you have used them, there are no upfront payments
