So, what will this mean for you and your business? Well, as of April 2017, you are now able to choose your business’ water retailer just like you can in the UK energy market. Your water supplier will be the same but you can now choose your water retailer or who you pay your bill to.

Additional information

Useful information about business water deregulation that might put things in perspective.

If your business uses more than 5000m3 of water per year or your business is based in Scotland you can already switch water retailer.

The market changes are only for businesses, the opening of the domestic market is still under consideration. So, if you run your business from home, you might not be able to switch.

If your business is in both England or Scotland, you’ll be able to switch. However, if your business or current water retailer is in Wales, you might not be able to switch at this time.
