Reforming the business energy efficiency tax landscape

Reforming the business energy efficiency tax landscape

Following the announcement of a review of the business energy efficiency tax landscape at the Summer Budget, this consultation seeks evidence from a number of stakeholders and sets out policy proposals to simplify and improve the effectiveness of the landscape in supporting the Government’s objectives around simplicity, productivity, security of energy supplies and decarbonisation.

The proposals set out in this consultation document do not seek to address all the barriers but set out approaches to improving the effectiveness of the policy framework by:

  • simplifying reporting and taxes to reduce administrative burdens;
  • targeting policy levers at cost-effective energy efficiency potential identified in business sectors and heat use;
  • using policy instruments to help raise the profile of energy efficiency and carbon reduction with decision makers; and
  • improving the case for investments in energy efficiency and low carbon alternatives.
