I really don't think most electricity bills are that difficult to understand.
They generally show the previous and current meter readings, number of units used, cost per unit, total amount, standing charge, and VAT. What else is needed?
I'll have to concede that just recently there seems to have been a lot of unnecessary format changes though, as the companies have gone through ownership changes. BT has been changing formats of bills for telephone service at similarly regular intervals recently. My water bill still looks exactly the same as when I moved here 7 years ago, however, so at least that's something.
