    What is the Climate Change Levy (CCL)?

    Your energy bill is made of commodity and non-commodity costs and CCL makes up a% of those non-commodity costs. It is a tax designed to make UK businesses more sustainable. It is designed to encourage businesses to reduce energy use by being more efficient thus drive a reduction in greenhouse gases.

    CCL on average is anywhere between 4% and 7% of your entire energy bill.

    The rate for Gas has increased year on year since 2019 so the cost of CCL has been a factor in increased energy costs.

    VAT is also charged on CCL – effectively a tax on a tax.

    Who is eligible for the CCL?

    It is hard to be exact as the guidance is substantial but as a brief overview the following areas could be exempt.

    1- For supplies used in some forms of transport

    2- For use in metallurgical and mineralogical processes

    3- For Domestic and charitable non-business use

    The lists are substantial so if you want to know if you could qualify for a reduction in your energy bill, we can advise you.
