Environmental taxes, reliefs and schemes for businesses

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
  • 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.
