What are the ETL and ECA?

The ETL is one of the world’s largest databases of top performing energy-saving products. Part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, businesses who purchase qualifying ETL products can claim a tax break of 100% in the first year, representing a 19% cost saving.

Examples of how the Energy Technology List's ECA Scheme can benefit you and your business

Example One - without ETL

You invest £10,000 on new HVACR equipment and claim standard allowance at the rate of 18%.Your corporation tax rate is 19%

Cost savings: tax relief would be £342 in the first year* with the option to claim further tax relief in future years.

*on the basis that all other Annual Investment Allowances (AIA) have been utilised and the standard capital allowance is being claimed.

Example Two - with ETL

You invest £10,000 on a new HVACR equipment, but select equipment that qualifies for the ETL and can, therefore, claim an Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA).

Cost savings: ECA provides an immediate 100% tax relief of £1900 in the same year. Representing a cash flow boost of £1558 that would be applicable for every £10,000 that is spent in the same year . It also removes the need and cost of claiming the Writing Down Allowance (WDA) in future years.

*As a company you can claim ECA'S in addition to AIA's. If you have used up your AIA allowance, then you could claim an ECA on the ETL listed products. Increasing total available accelerated tax allowances.
