GOD SAVE THE QUEEN
On Monday 19th September 2022, Queen Elizabeth II was buried at Windsor Castle.
The Premier offices were closed on the burial day to pay respects to the late queen. We choose to remember her smile and poignant words:
“We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: We will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”
RIP Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022).
THE NEW ENERGY BILL RELIEF SCHEME
The Prime Minister has finalised plans for an Energy Price Guarantee for families and businesses. As a part of this two-year guarantee, typical households will pay no more than £2,500 a year on their energy bills from October, whilst businesses will see equivalent support over the winter period.
The Energy Bill Relief Scheme will help businesses all the way from salons and spas to hotels and leisure centres. This scheme will provide a discount on gas and electricity unit prices, with non-domestic energy user prices set at £211 per megawatt hour (MWh for electricity) and £75 per MWh for gas.
To find out the exact rates and bill discount for your business, view the guidance below.
