Accelerated Capital Allowances for Energy Efficient Equipment

The current accelerated capital allowances regime for energy efficient equipment is to be extended until 31 December 2023.

This regime can provide a significant tax saving for companies and individuals engaged in business - it permits businesses to claim an accelerated wear and tear allowance (i.e. 100%) in respect of any capital expenditure incurred on energy efficient equipment.

The equipment must be used wholly and exclusively for the purposes of the trade and must belong to the business. It is also possible to make a claim for accelerated capital allowances in respect of energy-efficient equipment used in a rental trade. The full allowance can be claimed in the year that the energy efficient equipment is brought into use in the trade.

The accelerated capital allowances regime is available in respect of various types of energy efficient equipment including the following:

  • Information and Communications Technology
  • Lighting Equipment
  • Heating and Electricity Equipment
  • Ventilation and Air-conditioning Control Systems
  • Catering and Hospitality Equipment
