INDEPENDENT WHOLE OF MARKET COST REDUCTION CONSULTANTS & WATER AUDITORS
Business Advisory Centre: Home of The Fair Deal Initiative
Welcome to The Business Advisory Centre, the home of the UK Fair Deal For Business Initiative. Since 2010, we have been helping UK businesses, charities and organisations secure transparent, affordable and high quality essential services including Water & Waste, Energy, Phone & Broadband, IP & Voip, Merchant Services, Web and Print. Our small, but very experienced team of utility experts, water and waste auditors, marketing specialists and web developers offer a bespoke cost management solution ensuring your business is on a 'Fair Deal'. The market is saturated with brokers, many who offer nothing more than a simple switch and save service. The lack of regulation around brokering businesses has led to a mass of door to door and telesales operations with teams who have very little experience of the utility sector and its vast range of products. Services such as energy and water are complex services and selling on price alone can lead to businesses being locked into expensive contracts that are expensive and time consuming to manage. Having assisted hundreds of businesses who had been sold expensive and in many cases unsuitable utility contracts, we launched the Fair Deal Initiative in 2020 to help businesses secure essential services that deliver in three key areas:
TRANSPARENT TARIFFS & PRODUCTS
FIT FOR PURPOSE
As part of the Fair Deal Initiative, our team will conduct a free, independent and indepth review of your business operating costs. The audit process is conducted in granular detail and will focus on the following areas:
Water & Waste Services
Energy & Water Efficiency
Phone & Broadband
Web & Print
CCTV, Alarms & Fire Safety
Following the initial audit (this may be remote or on-site), our auditor will write up a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) report. This will detail our findings including tariff savings, allowances, refunds & rebates, efficiency recommendations & any funding options that may be available. Our auditors will also look at any opportunities to help your business reduce its Carbon footprint and achieve its green targets. This is essential for any business looking to achieve ISO 14001.
The Business Advisory Centre are here to help you and your business secure significant, ongoing savings. Our service offers a lot more than the typical switch and save services that saturate the web. As the saying go's, you can only squeeze so much juice out of the orange! We look at other means of reducing your business costs such as allowances and efficiency measures that will deliver big savings over and about switching provider. In the current economic environment, it is more important now than ever to carry out a full and indepth review of you business operating costs. Get in touch with us today and book an initial consultation with a business advisor to see how we can help your business.
WATER & WASTE
Did you know that as many as 1 in every 2 Scottish businesses pay too much for their business water supply? Or that on average, businesses use more than 30% more water than they require? Despite 10 years of a deregulated water market in Scotland, many businesses have not taken advantage of a more competitive market place offering better service, better pricing & choice of tariffs. At Business Advisory Centre, one of our local experts will ensure you are always on the best rates and will help your business become more efficient further reducing water spend. Average savings for 2021 was over £500!
