    FHL - Domestic or Business Electricity? 18th May 17 at 10:47 AM
    Does anyone know if a furnished holiday letting should be on a business electricity contract instead of a domestic contract? Or is there no hard and fast rule? I only let the house from March to October and don't live in it the rest of the time. I pay business rates, or at least, I'm registered but don't pay anything as get small business relief. I have no idea how costs compare between business and domestic contracts but I'm assuming business would be more expensive. Am currently on a domestic contract as I just carried it on when we started renting out the house as it was our holiday home before.

    Thank you!

    As the property is not used as a dwelling, but is let out as part of a business then it seems logical that a business electricity contract would be appropriate. Your electricity supplier however, may have different criteria.
