One reporting regime, one tax: our challenge to DECC

With new reporting and tax schemes on business energy efficiency emerging over the last few years, the landscape is now complicated for companies to navigate.

As a result, DECC and HM Treasury opened a consultation between September and November 2015 inviting stakeholders to help inform their review of existing schemes. The results are eagerly anticipated by business and stakeholders in early 2016.

We welcome this consultation and hope the government’s response will appropriately revitalise energy efficiency incentives, ensuring they are focussed on the right thing: encouraging business to reduce energy consumption through efficient reporting and a single tax regime.
