How to Pay Your Business Energy Bill

We make it simple and straightforward to pay your bills. See our various options below.

If you’ve agreed a contract with BES, you should have a Direct Debit in place. If for any reason you can’t pay by Direct Debit, you can find more information about our other options below. Please note that if your Direct Debit is not in place, you may be paying a higher rate.

All BES contracts are subject to payment by Direct Debit. This is the most efficient way to pay for your energy. We’ll always notify you when we’re planning to take the payment on your invoice.


  • No calls, leaving you to focus on running your business
  • Helps keep charges low by reducing the amount it costs us to administer your account
  • Reduce your workload through less administrative duties i.e. writing cheques
  • Avoid late payment charges or interest as invoices are paid on time

By having no Direct Debit in place, you may be incurring additional charges. Put a Direct Debit in place today and save money.
