Business owners are feeling the brunt of the Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) changes and the ending of the £400 discount on energy bills, with a potential rise in household energy bills by up to £3,000. This is unacceptable for businesses already struggling with high costs, as well as other financial pressures that come along with running a business.

That's why it is increasingly important for smaller businesses to find ways to cut costs and save money where possible, especially when it comes to accountancy services. Business owners should look for cheaper options that can help them manage their accounts, such as online accounting software or bookkeeping services - which are likely going to be more cost-effective than hiring a professional accountant.

Now more than ever, it is essential for businesses to take the necessary steps to save money. As Trade union congress general secretary Paul Nowak stated, “the government should cancel ending Ofgem's EPG initiative in order to ease the burden of rising energy bills and help small businesses remain successful and profitable.”

Ultimately, businesses need to become savvier when it comes to managing their finances and look for ways to cut costs in order to offset the Energy Price Guarantee changes that are taking place. Taking advantage of cost-saving solutions such as digital accounting software will ensure that your business remains financially resilient despite the Energy Price Cap changes.
