What is a Letter of authority or LOA?

Chances are, at some point in your business energy journey, you will have been asked to sign a Letter of Authority or LoA - but what exactly does this mean?

A Letter of Authority is a legal document that authorises a third party – often known as the ‘agent’ – to correspond with services on behalf of your or your business – known as the ‘principal’. The letter will specify the tasks the third party can handle for the principal. Letters of Authority are used in many UK industries. In the energy market, they’re required before a broker or consultant can correspond with energy suppliers on your behalf. It will need to be signed and dated and submitted to the consultancy and generally also to your current energy supplier before they can act. Letters of Authority will state how long they’re valid for. 12 months is standard. You’ll have to sign another one after that time to authorise your broker to continue acting for your business.

 

What does a Letter of authority enable us to do?

In the energy market, a Letter of Authority may grant us the right to:

  • gather data on your business location and meter portfolio
  • liaise with your current supplier and handle billing issues
  • handle administrative issues related to your energy supply and the management of your account with your supplier
  • request and receive all billing information, including copies of energy bills, debt information, and payment terms
  • request and receive current and historical account information including consumption history, supply numbers, pricing details, and contract end dates
  • raise complaints with your supplier and handle them
  • obtain information from third party industry databases, for example, metering details
  • submit VAT forms, CCL (Climate Change Levy) exemption forms
  • request meter exchanges and new installations, including smart meter installations

  • arrange site visit appointments
  • renew your energy contract or terminate it or opt out of future automatic renewals
  • switch your energy contract
  • request prices from and negotiate with energy suppliers
  • find you the cheapest gas and electricity

Typically, Letters of Authority won’t give us the right to sign onto a contract without your consent. The only energy contracts you enter will be ones you specifically and personally have agreed to.
