Environmental taxes, reliefs and schemes for businesses
The government states that environmental taxes “encourage your business to operate in a more environmentally friendly way”. There are taxes and schemes for different types and size of business.
You may get reliefs or be exempt from some taxes, for example if:
- you use a lot of energy because of the nature of your business;
- you’re a small business that does not use much energy; or
- you buy energy-efficient technology for your business.
You can pay less tax by applying for schemes to help you demonstrate that you’re operating more efficiently and producing waste that’s less damaging.
