What is an Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) Scheme?
The Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme is a Government programme designed to manage climate change and encourage businesses to invest in energy and water saving equipment.
The scheme allows businesses to write off 100% of the investment of the energy saving technologies, against the taxable profits in the year in which the investment was made. Each claim is assessed on its potential to reach real energy savings.
The qualifying product needs to be listed on the ETL that is updated to include new or improved products that meet the criteria.
Do you have any qualifying products listed in the Energy Technologies List?
Within each technology area there can be sub-technologies:
- Air to Air energy recovery
- Boiler Equipment
- Combined Heat and Power
- Compressed Air Equipment
- Heat Pumps
- Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment
- High Speed Hand Air Dryers
- Motors and Drives
- Pipework Insulation
- Radiant and warm air heaters
- Refrigeration equipment
- Solar thermal systems
Benefits to your business:
> Provides a tax incentive to businesses who invest in equipment from the ETL List
> Open to all businesses that pay UK Corporation or Income Tax regardless of its size, section or location
> Improves cash flow
> Lower energy bill
> Reduction in Climate Change Levy or CRC payment
