Our customer bondholders

As a Good Energy customer bondholder you are entitled to receive an additional 0.25% per annum interest payment on maturity of the bonds for any year in which you are one of our valued customers on 1st January for the relevant year, whether you buy your energy from us or are a generator supported by us.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be the bondholder who necessarily pays the bill – we have extended it so that you are entitled to the interest even if someone else in your household is the customer. You can let us know the Good Energy customer account number and name of the account holder by contacting us at bond.support@goodenergy.co.uk.

I’ve lost my bond certificate, but I want to redeem. What should I do?

If you have lost your bond certificate, a replacement can be obtained through the completion and return of an Indemnity for the lost certificate. In most instances it is usual for an administration fee to be charged for the production of an Indemnity. Original certificates are cancelled when an Indemnity is raised to cover the risks associated with their loss so please ensure that you are certain that the certificate has been lost.

Please contact us at bond.support@goodenergy.co.uk if you would like us to request our Registrar, Computershare, send you a Letter of Indemnity. In order to issue a new certificate you will need to complete, sign and send this back to Computershare.

Alternatively they can be contacted on 0370 707 1154.

What tax is payable on the interest received and do I pay it?

Good Energy makes interest payments on bonds net of a withholding tax at the basic rate of income tax, currently 20%. This is outlined in the terms and conditions of the Good Energy Bonds Invitation documents. Good Energy is required to make payments to every individual bondholder consistently in accordance with the terms and conditions. We regret that Good Energy cannot vary this on an individual basis.

Good Energy pays interest net of this withholding tax to Good Energy Bonds bondholders six monthly (within 15 business days of the interest payment date). The withheld tax on bond interest payments are paid to HMRC after each quarter end. HMRC should be able to answer any further questions you have relating to your personal tax reclaim and we encourage you speak with them to discuss your individual situation.
