Your Split Tariff Explained.

We want to make sure you know everything there is to know about your payments before we get going. That's why we've put together the info below, explaining how your tariffs are calculated and exactly where your money will be spent.

Let's Break It Down

When it comes to gas and electricity, your tariffs are made up of a basic daily rate (or a "standing charge") and one or more unit rates, the latter measuring the amount of gas or electricity you actually use. If you have a variable rate or Economy 7 meter, you'll have two different unit rates: one for daytime and a lower one for throughout the night.

As for your TV and broadband tariffs, they can be as cheap or as pricey as you make them - it all depends on which broadband speeds and TV packages you opt for.

Finally, the cost of your water services and your TV Licence will always match those set by the local provider and the UK government respectively, as we always match them like for like, never charging so much as a single penny more.

Our Price Promise Guarantee

We pride ourselves on getting you the best possible services at the best possible prices and can guarantee you won't get a cheaper deal by going direct to our suppliers or another bill management company. Thanks to our partnerships with some of the UK's leading utility brands, we have exclusive access to deals you won't find elsewhere on the market, but just in case you do get a better offer at the time you join Split the Bills, we promise to match the price.

Electric Prices In Your Area

Your electricity rates are specific to the area you live in, as network operators charge different rates in different parts of the UK (see below). We offer both standard and Economy 7 tariffs and all of our prices are inclusive of 5% VAT.

Water Prices

Your fresh water and sewerage costs depend entirely on what your local water company charges, as with us, you pay exactly the same as going direct and not a penny more.

Broadband Packages

As well as the prices shown here, our broadband packages may also be subject to an additional installation fee, the cost of which will differ depending on the provider and package that you choose.

The figures quoted for Broadband are inclusive of landline rental. However, those for Virgin Media Fibre Optic Broadband are not, as a landline is not required in order to take this service.

If you wish to cancel your broadband before the end of your contract, both providers may require you to pay the rest of your contract in full.

TV Licence

The current price for a Colour TV licence, as set by the UK government, is £147.00; exactly the same as what you'll pay with us.

Sky TV Packages

In addition to the prices shown here, our Sky TV packages may also be subject to a £25 installation fee.

It's worth noting too that if you wish to cancel your subscription before you come to the end of your contract, you'll first be required to pay the remainder of your contract in full.

Original Bundle (per month) Variety Bundle (per month) Family Bundle (per month)
£22.50 £32.00 £38.00

We don't do hidden fees

We're open and honest about how we work, as well as where your money is spent, so you can rest assured that you won't come across any nasty surprises later down the line. In order to cover your account setup costs, an initial £14.99 set up fee is included within each housemate's first payment. From then on, in order for us to manage your utilities efficiently, we include a £1.50 per week "Split Fee" within each monthly bill. That's it, nothing more - not now, not ever.

About Your Payment Plan

At the beginning of each month, we'll send you a personal payment plan covering the costs of your utilities for the month ahead. This is usually debited from your bank account on or around the 15th of each month.

Think of us as your joint piggy bank. Each month, you and your housemates contribute a set amount towards your services, which sits in your piggy bank. We use this money to pay your bills, as and when we get them.

To make your life easier, you pay a little extra for us to manage your bills. We believe the best way to do so is for you to pay the same amount into your piggy bank from the offset, which includes the costs of all services.

This will build up credit on your account to cover things like higher energy usage in the winter, or the movie you're dying to download on Sky Store for duvet day.

As we pay some bills in advance, others in arrears (depending on the supplier), by you contributing in full from day 1, it helps make sure your bills are paid spot on.

The last thing we'd want is for you to end up falling into debt, so by paying this way, it'll help to avoid that happening.
