British Gas usually charge an exit fee of £30 for electricity and £30 for gas if you switch to another energy supplier after the 14-day cooling-off period and before the 49-day window starts. If you switch to another tariff but stay with them, there are usually no fees to pay.
What happens to my British Gas smart meter if I change supplier?
What happens to your credit when you switch energy suppliers? All you need to do is take a final meter reading and send it to your old supplier. If you're in credit they'll send you a refund. And if you still owe money, they'll send you a final bill which you'll need to pay.
