What is a standing charge?

Your standing charge is a charge you pay every day regardless of how much gas you use, measured in pence per day. The standing charge includes fixed costs to supply your home with gas that do not depend on your consumption such as renting the meter in your house for example.

To work out your total standing charges in your statement we multiply the number of days in the period by the pence per day standing charge then add 5% VAT, its that simple.
