Forensic Cost Recovery

Last updated: 1st September 2020

You should not have to pay for something you haven’t used, so if you do get charged incorrectly for electricity, gas or water, we can get that money back for you.

In-depth utility spend analysis

Our FCR specialists’ source historical and current data and carry out an in-depth analysis of your utility spend from the past six years. Our bespoke software will identify any billing errors and if there has been an error, you will receive a backdated refund. If not, you can be assured that everything is in order.

We have recovered monies from organisations ranging from FTSE100 companies, local authorities, trade associations and individual local companies. In one 12-month period, our specialist team recovered on behalf of our clients in excess of £500,000 through retrospective billing errors by suppliers.

Where there are errors, we negotiate with the utility suppliers to recover all refunds and/or credits and, where possible, correct any false or inaccurate information to help prevent future billing errors.
