Credit billing services

Ensuring your customers receive accurate bills on time

We want to make a lasting difference to people’s lives by providing quality affordable billing services with payment options to suit their personal requirements. Our extensive experience in the industry and our knowledge through previous schemes has taught us that it is imperative to be transparent, open and honest on standing charges and ensure that residents have a variety ways to pay their bill. Taking this approach makes sure that you have a consistent cash flow.
