I kept putting off doing the Back to the Sofa health check as thought it would just be another one of those things to get your details then bombard you with rubbish but how wrong I was! By completing the health check Back to the Sofa picked up that we were being charged a higher rate of VAT than we should have been as a Charity and that we were being charged the Climate Levy we should not have been. So glad I bothered in the end as we have now received an overall refund from both our Electricity and Gas suppliers of around £1360.00!!! I would happily recommend taking the health check to anyone. Going forward we will save approx £100.00 a month, subject to the amount of gas and electricity we use of course which will mean more funds are available to help the many good causes we support. Thanks again Back to the Sofa!

Back of the Sofa were extremely professional in assisting us with gaining a Vat Rebate. Nick dealt with all of our enquiries and ensured we got the best return possible. I would recommend to everyone.

We needed to maintain the capital whilst earning as much interest as possible. Our priorities are that the money is secure, but also that we have flexibility to get the funds out when we need them. If I’d sat down by myself, I could possibly have achieved similar returns, but would have had to put in a huge amount of man hours to do so. We’re getting a better return and not having to put the effort in. Using the service removes any hassle which is what we see as one of the key benefits.
