Mistakes in water bills can cost organisations thousands each year.
Over the years, we have recouped thousands of pounds of overcharges on water bills for our clients.
Our fully comprehensive invoice management and validation service ensures that you only pay for water that you actually use.
All incoming bills are thoroughly checked, scanned into our secure document server, then forwarded on for payment as usual within 24 hours. If there are any errors on the bills, the Business Cost Consultants team will deal with the suppliers on your behalf and report back to you.
Your organisation will be appointed a dedicated consultant and client advisor to oversee all aspects of your water contracts and be on hand to answer any queries you may have.
