5 Biggest SECR Mistakes

In this 20-minutes video you will learn all you need to know to avoid the 5 biggest SECR mistakes. Learn which are the most common mistakes companies do when complying with SECR and how to avoid them.

Who needs to comply with SECR?

If your company is classed as “large” in accordance with the Companies Act 2006 you will need to carry out SECR compliance and provide a record in your end-of-year accounts.

“Large” companies are those that meet 2 out of the 3 following criteria you will need to do an SECR report:

  • A turnover over £36m
  • A balance sheet over £18m
  • More than 250 employees

In addition, all UK quoted companies (MGHG) will need to submit an SECR report.

Businesses that use less than 40MWh over the reporting period are exempt, but a statement confirming your energy use at this level still needs to be included. Public sector organisations are exempt from having to submit SECR reports.
