We’ve got the answers. Head here for more questions we’re often asked.

Setting up an account takes less than 3 minutes. Once all housemates have joined, we’ll get to work with setting up each service. 

For Broadband, over our busiest period (June – September), we aim to confirm your install date as soon as we can. This is usually within 10 days after all housemates have signed up to us.

As this is also the busiest time for our suppliers, the current wait time to have your broadband installed can be up to 3 weeks after your account has completed. So the sooner you all sign up, the better. 

For Energy, we’ll switch this over to our supplier which usually takes 4 to 6 weeks (an energy industry standard timeframe). In the meantime, you’ll get your gas and electric from another supplier.

For Water and TV Licence, we’ll set this up for your account start date. 

Your Split The Bills account will need to be at least 6 months long for us to setup your bills for you. Once you’re signed up, the minimum term is up to the tenancy end date that you tell us when you sign up.

If you choose to leave before the end date you told us, you’re free to do so, but Split The Bills cancellation fees may apply, plus Broadband and TV Licensing charges as below.

If your tenancy hasn’t ended and you cancel with us, you’ll still be responsible for paying the utility bills. If you don’t transfer your gas and electric to a different supplier, we will continue to bill you for these services.

If you take Broadband, it is subject a 12 month minimum contract. If you close your account before the 12 months have passed, you will need to pay for the remainder of the contract. If you’re in the same property for longer than 12 months, the contract will roll over month by month after the minimum contract.

If you have a TV Licence, these are for 12 months, as standard. If you cancel your account before the 12 months are up, you’ll be liable to pay the remainder of the licence cost.

Most bill-splitting apps are free to download BUT you’ll need to manage the bills yourself and can find yourself in a lot of trouble if your housemates don’t pay. With the leading student bill-splitting app, if your housemate doesn’t pay within 7 days then the rest of the housemates are charged! With us, we’ll do all the chasing if your housemates don’t pay, meaning you’re less at risk of paying for their share.

Not with us.

We used to charge a set up fee and a weekly management fee but this is no longer the case. You’ll pay the same amount each month, no fees, no fuss.

Unlike direct energy suppliers and other bill management companies, you won’t get a surprise final energy bill when you move out with our new ‘unlimited energy’ plan. Pay one fixed amount and have the freedom to use the energy you need without the worry of a huge bill after you’ve moved out.

It sure is. Unless, in the unlikely event that you’re being negligent or using energy for commercial use.

Ping us meter readings

Once you’re up and running, all we ask is that you send us Gas and Electric meter readings every so often. These help us to keep an eye on your energy usage. Of course, take our Unlimited Energy plan and there’s no allowance to go over. No unexpected bills either.


Let's do good, together

We feel strongly for the struggling youth and teenagers facing each day without the vital support they need. That’s why we donate £1 for every house that joins Split The Bills to Roundabout, who help vulnerable youth back on their feet. They provide support with housing homeless and vulnerable youth, whilst also giving them the life skills they need to get ahead.
