About this agreement
The bill validation service ensures you are only billed for the utilities used at the rates agreed with the supplier. Mistakes are often made through estimated billing and incorrect contract charges, which means many businesses overpay by considerable amounts each year. This allows budget holders in organisations to plan for the future with more informed and accurate budgeting and forecasting, which improves cash flow tracking. Around 3-5% of utility invoices are incorrect, outsource companies will recover the discrepancies, taking a % as commission on a no win no fee basis. Time is saved at organisation level chasing these billing errors. Analysis and recovery offered in energy, water, telecommunications, rents/ rates as well as a One Stop Shop for bespoke requests. The framework offers "Pre" and "ongoing" audits to ensure compliance with organisation specific policies.
