star this property answer text <p>The practice of the automatic roll-over of contracts does not breach any licence condition and therefore there are currently no sanctions available to Government or the independent regulator (Ofgem).</p><p> </p><p>Last year Ofgem carried out a review of the practice of automatic renewal contract arrangements in the non-domestic retail energy market. As a result of the review, Ofgem is currently consulting on proposals to improve end of contract arrangements. The proposals do not include a ban on automatic rollovers because Ofgem considers that such a ban could reduce competition from independent suppliers, which gives small businesses a greater choice to choose a deal that suits their business needs. The focus is on improving protections for non-domestic consumers by improving the clarity of information provided by energy supply companies. The consultation closes on 9 April and is available from Ofgem's website at:</p><p><a href="https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/non-domestic-automatic-rollovers-and-contract-renewals" target="_blank">https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/non-domestic-automatic-rollovers-and-contract-renewals</a></p><p> </p><p>In June last year we set up a No. 10/DECC SME Energy Working Group to tackle issues facing small business with groups including the Federation of Small Businesses and the Forum for Private Business and Energy UK.</p><p> </p><p>As a result a number of energy companies have already agreed to introduce arrangements before the end of this year to limit back-bills to 1 year where the supplier is at fault, which is the same rule as for domestic customers, and to end automatic-rollovers for all new customers from Spring 2014 and to existing customers shortly after.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to work with industry and SME consumer groups to address issues to help disengaged small business energy consumers.</p><p> </p>
