APPLICATION FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

BEFORE COMPLETING THE APPLICATION FORM, PLEASE READ THE NOTES BELOW.

Who can apply to the Energy Fund?

You can apply to the Energy Fund if you are a current business account holder of BES Utilities, have been a customer for over 12 months and are finding it difficult to pay for your energy bills. The Fund can help clear debts for business electricity and gas owed to BES Utilities for businesses in England, Scotland and Wales.

Before completing this application form you must have obtained independent debt advice from Business Debtline. https://www.businessdebtline.org/

The Fund looks to support those committed to achieving future financial stability, helping you keep up to date with current bills and avoiding future debts.
