Tax saving benefits

The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme is a key part of the Governments' programme to manage climate change. The scheme is designed to encourage businesses to invest in energy-saving eco-friendly equipment through tax saving incentives offered to businesses that invest in equipment that meets certain energy-saving criteria.

What is ECA?
ECAs enable businesses to claim 100% first-year capital allowances on their spending on purchased energy-saving plant and machinery.
Providing the equipment is listed on the Energy Technology list then the total installed value of the systems can be written off against taxable profits during the year in which the purchase is made.

The Government introduced the ECA scheme in 2001 to encourage businesses to invest in low carbon, energy-saving equipment. The ECA scheme can bring significant financial savings in the short and long-term as well as improving a company's energy-efficiency and its impact on the environment.

As part of the Climate Change Levy Programme it is designed to help the UK reach its Kyoto target of reducing carbon emissions by 20%. Climate change is becoming one of the biggest threats to our planetís environment, and the biggest cause of this is carbon emissions produced by burning fossil fuels.

The Energy Technology List (ETL) details the criteria for each type of technology and lists those products in each category that meet them. It is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government.

We ensure all our installations qualify for the ECA scheme allowing our customers to benefit from this tax break which can deliver a helpful cash flow boost and a shortened pay back period.
