Benefit of GQCHP - ECA

The ECA scheme allows businesses to write off 100% of their investment in those energy saving technologies that are listed in the Energy Technology Criteria List against the taxable profits of the period during which they make the investment. ECAs are claimed in the same way as other capital allowances on the Corporation Tax Return for companies and the Income Tax Return for individuals and partnerships. One of the qualifying technologies is good quality CHP.
