Investing in energy-saving Variable Speed Drives does more than just save your business money it is often more tax efficient....





Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs) are a straightforward way for a business to improve its cash flow through accelerated tax relief.  The ECA scheme for energy-saving technologies encourages businesses to invest in energy-saving plant or machinery specified on the Energy Technology List (ETL) which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of Government. All the Variable Speed Drives products offered by UCS Energy Solutions meet the ECA scheme requirements and are included on the ETL.

The ECA scheme provides businesses with 100% first year tax relief on their qualifying capital expenditure. Businesses are therefore able to write off the whole cost of the equipment and installation costs against their taxable profits in the year of purchase.  This can provide an additional cash flow boost.

If your business pays corporation tax at 28%, every 1,000 spent on Variable Speed Drives would reduce its tax bill in the year of purchase by 280.  In contrast, for every 1,000 spent, the generally available capital allowance for spending on plant and machinery would reduce your business' tax bill in the year of purchase by 56.  In other words, an ECA can provide a cash flow boost of 224 for every 1,000 it spends in the year of purchase.
