When should I submit a meter reading?

https://help.bulb.co.uk/hc/en-us/articles/115003193451-When-should-I-submit-a-meter-reading- says in the first sentence: Ideally, you would submit meter readings every month, two days before your payment date.

I wonder if this should this say … “before your statement date”? Since you can change your direct debit payment date it could be quite out sync with your statement date and in these circumstances if the meter reading submission is before the payment date then the statement would always be based in estimated readings? Or if you change your payment date does the statement date follow suite?

I changed mine shortly after joining and yes, it does.

I couldn’t really tell if mine did. After the first month for convenience I changed my payment date by bringing it forward by one day, on this basis it isn’t obvious if my statement date changed in sympathy.

Ah, OK. Mine was readily apparent as it changed from 5th to 17th.

Hi both, it does change in line with the payment date.

Thanks, that makes total sense.
