Treating our Microbusiness customers fairly

What are these Standards of Conduct?

We must behave and carry out our activities for all customers in a fair, honest, transparent, appropriate, and professional manner. We must also provide information to all Micro Business customers (whether in writing or orally) which is accurate, not misleading and displayed in plain and intelligible language.

We will make it easy for all our customers to contact us, to act promptly to put things right when we get it wrong and to ensure customer service arrangements meets our customers’ needs.

Will we make it clear in your Welcome Letter and on your invoice what charges apply to you. We do not expect to make changes to the charges you pay during the contract period. However, we reserve the right to make changes to your charges if a third party changes their charges to us or there are changes in law resulting in us incurring additional charges, then we reserve the right to pass these on to you. At the end of your Fixed Term Agreement you will be automatically put on our Standard Variable Tariff.
