Types of business customers

Small to medium business is one that spends less than $30,000 (incl GST) annually on electricity or $50,000 (incl GST) on gas.

Large and multi-site business is one that spends more than this or has more than 10 sites.

Manage your energy account online

For small to medium businesses, you'll be able to manage your account including accessing and paying your bills using My Account.

Large businesses or those with multiple sites can access their invoices and manage their account using AGL for Business.

Higher than usual bills

If you've received a business bill that's higher than expected, it may be due to your bill being estimated (see below). If your bill isn't estimated and there hasn't been any recent rate or charge increases, you can view the tariff assigned to your meter on your bill or arrange a tariff analysis by contacting our team.

For more information on what could be causing high bills, go to Unexpected high bill.

Estimated bills

If we're unable to get an actual read of your meter, we'll send you an estimated bill. This may be because the meter is behind a locked gate, protected by guard dogs or it was otherwise inaccessible.

Estimated bills are based on past energy usage which takes into account seasonal factors. When historical usage information isn't available, estimates will be based on the average energy usage of similar customers in the geographic region over the same period.

If you've received an estimated bill, your next actual meter-read bill will correct any discrepancy in your usage and what you've paid for on your estimated bill. This may mean that your next bill will be more or less expensive than expected.

You can find out if your bill is estimated by looking for 'Reading Type' or 'Current Reading' on page 2 of your bill.
