Beond Group have been in the market since 1999 and were the first company to use an online e-auction to drive cheaper prices for customers. This involves a reverse auction tendering, whereby energy suppliers compete for your business. There’s no hiding place with this level of competition, so suppliers have to offer the very best price available on the market.

How it works – For Buying Group members who previously used Untied Utilities (If you have not come from Untied Utilities, please scroll down):

1. Your surgery will receive an introductory email from Chisom Nwolisa (Energy Consultant) advising your energy contracts are up for renewal.

2. Please respond directly to Beond confirming your surgery would like a quotation and attach one set of your most recent electricity and gas bills.

3. If your surgery has received a renewal quotation from your supplier or are requesting quotes from suppliers directly please request these before you instruct Beond to run an e-auction for you (as this will maximise the savings for your business)

4. Beond will ask you to complete a letter of authority (click on the highlighted link to view a sample LOA). The LOA gives Beond authority to request prices from the suppliers, submit contracts and manage any termination or registrations on your behalf.

5. Unless otherwise instructed, Beond will issue a termination notice to your current supplier contract. Please note this will not leave you without electricity or gas, it just ensures you are free to move to a more competitive supplier if required.

6. Beond will then send you a summarised report for supplier pricing for 1-5 years along with their recommendations but it is up the surgery what supplier and contract duration you prefer.

7. Your surgery will be required to complete a supplier contract on the same day it is generated as Beond cannot guarantee the prices will hold beyond this. So please set aside some time to ensure you can consider the prices, make a decision and sign the paperwork.

8. Your surgery will need to complete the relevant direct debit mandates (if required) by the authorised signatories on the same day as suppliers can reject contracts based on this.

9. Beond will submit the signed contract and LOA from your surgery for acceptance by the chosen supplier.

10. Beond will manage your registration process to ensure a smooth transfer of supply should you switch to a different supplier.

How it works – For Buying Group members who never used the Buying Group’s previous energy broker:

1. If your surgery plans to request quotes from suppliers directly please do this first as this will maximise the savings for your business when Beond start their e-auction process. Please ensure this quote is received no later 4pm the day before Beond run their e-auction.

2. Complete the form on this page (you need to be logged in to do this) to submit a bill/request a quote from Beond.

3. The Buying Group will send your form to Beond and then the process will be the same as above (from step 4).

You can check out some frequently asked questions about their process to help you make your choice.
