Microbusiness Complaints Process

Our experts work side-by-side with businesses, offering professional expertise and exclusive insights to support your needs.

We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service to all our customers.

We’re sorry you feel dissatisfied with our service, and whatever the reason we’d like to understand why so we can make every effort to put things right for you.

To do this as quickly and effectively as possible, we’re proud to be part of Ofgem’s Alternative Dispute Resolution scheme.

All complaints are observed by GEAB for training and quality purposes, to ensure that we meet our company standards, and to identify areas where we can improve.

How to raise a complaint

If at any stage you would like an update about your complaint, please feel free to reach out to us on 0191 303 7750 or email us at customer.complaints@GEAB.com.

Step 1

You can raise your complaint by phone, email or letter. Once your complaint has been received, we will send you a Complaint Reference Number within 1 working day. All our contact information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Step 2

Our complaints team will begin a full investigation, and we aim to complete this within 3 working days. Once completed, we will be in touch to discuss our findings and next steps.

Step 3

We will work with you to reach an agreeable resolution.

Step 4

If we’re unable to reach a mutual agreement, we will send you a final response known as a ‘Deadlock Letter’.


After 8 weeks of your complaint being open, we will send you an ‘8 Week’ letter.

If you receive either of these letters, you can escalate your complaint to the Energy Ombudsman Services, using the details below:

They offer a free, independent, and impartial dispute resolution scheme who can look into your complaint. They will liaise with us and yourself and will provide an outcome.
