How to Claim Back Mis-Sold Business Energy

How to Claim Back Mis-Sold Business Energy

Businesses across the UK have been impacted by mis-selling of energy contracts, where brokers have failed to disclose the commission payments, they receive from energy suppliers. This has resulted in businesses paying more for their energy than they should and being locked into unsuitable contracts. HC Finance Group, a leading financial services company, is committed to helping businesses claim back the commissions that were not disclosed in their energy contracts.
Mis-selling of business energy contracts can occur when an energy broker sells an energy contract to a business customer that is not appropriate for their needs or that they did not agree to, as an example having hidden commissions.
This can lead to businesses paying more for their energy than they should or being locked into unsuitable contracts. However, if you think you have been mis-sold a business energy contract, you may be entitled to claim back any losses you have incurred.
Here's how to go about it:
Gather Your Evidence: The first step to claiming back mis-sold business energy is to gather all the relevant evidence. This includes your energy contract, bills, and any communication you had with your energy supplier or broker. You should also keep a record of any promises that were made to you, such as guaranteed savings or fixed prices.
Review Your Contract: Carefully review your energy contract and check for any discrepancies or inconsistencies. If you notice any discrepancies, bring them to the attention of your energy supplier or broker. This may get a bit tricky if you do not understand what is written or what you are looking for. If this is the case, then a reputable company such as HC Finance Group will be able to do this for you free of charge.
As a business owner, energy contracts can be confusing and difficult to navigate, especially when you're focused on running your operations. It's important to understand that you have the right to fair and transparent pricing when it comes to your energy contracts. This is where HC Finance Group can help.
Seek Legal Advice: A reputable claims company such as HC Finance Group will be able to tell you how much you have been mis-sold and they will even action this for you on a no-win no-fee basis, claiming back the commission that the brokers did not tell you about.
It's important to note that the claims process for mis-sold business energy can be complex and time-consuming. However, with the right evidence and support, you can successfully claim back any losses you have incurred.
