If you're a small business energy user - and can be defined as a micro-business - then feel free to use the following template as a basis for your very own energy contract Termination Notice.
Make sure you customise the notice to meet the specific needs of both your business and your electricity or gas supplier. This should include entering your own details to replace the text shown in brackets.
Unless otherwise instructed by your supplier, we usually recommend that a Termination Notice should be sent as a letter on company headed paper and signed by an authorised representative. However, some energy companies may accept an email instead.
Please also check your existing gas or electricity contract to see if there are any specific requirements when notifying the supplier, such as a particular address that the notice should be sent to, as well as the last date they will accept this notice for it to be effective.
Sample Termination Notice...
To: [Name of energy supplier]
From: [Your business name]
Premises: [Address where meter is located]
This letter is to advise you that our company wishes to terminate our business electricity supply agreement with you when our current contract expires on [e.g. 1st Jan 2013]
This letter has been sent to ensure we can choose a new supplier or tariff to replace this current one, and not be rolled over.
Please provide confirmation of receipt and acceptance of this termination letter within 48 hours of receipt.
If [current supplier's name] would like to quote for our next contract, we will take this into account when choosing the next energy supplier to provide our [electricity/gas].
[Your signature - if a letter]
[Your company name]
[Your telephone number]
[Your email address]
