Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced in the 2020 budget that the voluntary scheme would be extended to March 2025 and would be open to new applicants.
The scheme shut to new applicants in October 2018, but with the government trying to battle climate change and with Climate Change Levy rates increasing, this now poses an opportunity for eligible businesses to participate in the scheme and contribute towards the reduction of global carbon emissions in return for a portion of tax relief.
At a time where every penny counts, joining the CCA scheme is a great opportunity for businesses with energy-intensive processes to gain tax relief.
Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements that allow eligible energy-intensive sectors to receive a reduction of up to 90% on Climate Change Levy (CCL) in return for committing to pre-determined energy efficiency targets. Manufacturers within the mineralogical and metallurgical sectors may be eligible for up to 100% relief.
