I get my metered water bill from South East Water every 6 months. It used to always charge me for water usage for the past 6 months, and a standing charge for the forthcoming 6 months. This has changed with the bill I have just received in that the standing charge is for the next 12 months. It's a bit steep charging 12 months ahead. Are all Water Companies employing this tactic. I presume it's to aid cash flow, or trying to tempt us to change to direct debit?
