ECA Financial Benefits - The ECA Scheme

The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme is a key part of the governments programme to manage climate change, and is designed to encourage businesses to invest in low carbon energy saving equipment. It is designed to help the UK reach it’s Kyoto targets of reducing carbon emissions by 20%.

Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our environment, around half of the carbon emissions produced comes from business and industrial processes.

What are the financial benefits?

  • An ECA provides 100% tax relief on an investment in energy -saving equipment, in the same tax year as the purchase is made.
  • So a company paying corporation tax at 28% will receive 28p tax relief for every £1 invested in energy saving products.
  • As well as the added tax incentive there are long-term savings to be made from the initial investment. Investing in energy saving equipment could reduce a company's energy bills, as running costs are lower.
  • Environmental Cooling Services encourage and promote the Air-conditioning and Heating equipment that is listed by the ECA to ensure that our clients make that step towards climate change.
