We work to reduce your energy-related costs by understanding your business better. Our team can unlock savings from energy tax relief schemes such as the Climate Change Levy exemption scheme, or the Energy-Intensive Industries compensation scheme.
The government levies taxes on energy to fund subsidies for renewable programmes, investment in low carbon technology and to incentivise companies to reduce energy consumption. Reducing consumption works towards the overall aim for the UK government to achieve Net Zero by 2050.
The Energy Taxation Directive set both a mandate for a minimum amount of tax to be levied on energy, as well as allowances for business deemed to be at risk of carbon leakage. These allowances paved the way for energy tax reliefs, which are now utilised by business to improve the bottom line and compete in global markets.
The Climate Change Levy is a tax on the consumption of electricity, natural gas and fossil fuels for non-domestic users in the UK, it is used to encourage businesses to reduce their carbon emissions and increase their energy efficiency. The CCL main rates will be listed on your business’s energy bill and amounts to around 5% of the invoice.
