  • Which products and technologies can qualify?
  • How to claim

the eca scheme aims
The ECA Scheme - Aims
  • To encourage businesses to invest in more sustainable technologies:
    • Through providing fiscal incentive to users; and
    • Through providing a marketing tool for manufacturers, thereby encouraging innovation
the eca scheme4
The ECA Scheme
  • ECAs provide:
    • Fiscal incentives to users designed to encourage companies to choose water efficient and water quality enhancing products and technologies
    • Tax relief on qualifying investments within one year, delivering significant cash flow boost and shortening the payback period on investment
the eca scheme5
The ECA Scheme
  • Products and technologies qualifying for an ECA are listed on the Water Technology List and encourage sustainable water use
  • They deliver significant long-term financial benefits – e.g. just by being water efficient - over and above the enhanced tax relief
how much of an incentive is it
How much of an incentive is it?
  • Assuming there are sufficient profits for the Capital Allowances to be written off against and a Corporation Tax rate of 30%:
    • Capital Allowances are a benefit of £7.50 for every £100 spent
    • 100% First Year Allowances (or ECAs) are benefit of £30 for every £100 spent
    • All allowances due in first year – positively affecting cash flow
    • Additional benefits over 10 years
