Supercharging the way to the UK’s post-pandemic recovery through Green Investment- How your business can benefit from the new Super deduction tax announced in the latest budget

The Government’s new Super-deduction tax scheme

Coming into operation on the 1 April 2021, the Government’s new Super-deduction tax scheme enables businesses to claim 130% capital allowances on qualifying plant and machinery investments, up until the end of March 2023. This is expenditure that ordinarily would have been relieved at the main rate writing down allowance of 18%, whilst the special rate writing down allowance was 6%.

According to, under this super deduction, for every pound a company invests, their taxes are cut by up to 25p, making the new capital allowance regime the most internationally competitive allowance scheme amongst OECD member countries.

This uplift applied means that you receive a tax deduction of £130k for every £100k spent on qualified capital, giving corporation tax relief at 19% on £130,000, which is £24,700.

Qualifying plant and machinery assets include LED lighting, Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging points, Solar Panels and more.

Driving the green transition- Benefits of installing Workplace EV chargers

There is a plethora of benefits to be gained through businesses installing EV charging stations within the workplace.

  • Offering electric vehicle charging to your employees is a great work perk, that is increasingly viewed as a valuable tool for both employee retention and attraction.
  • Installing EV chargers will encourage you’re employees to make the switch- According to a report by Idaho National Laboratory, having an available charger at your workplace makes drivers six times more likely to switch to an electric car.
  • Employee “benefit in kind” tax is reduced for company cars.
  • A green fleet will help to reduce your company’s CO2 emissions. This demonstrates an active effort in achieving UK Green Growth strategy ambitions, whilst helping to improve your business’ image to appear both socially and environmentally conscious.

  • Energy efficient lighting like Hilclare’s Linergy can dramatically lower energy bills. In addition, when coupled with built-in sensor options, available with the majority of our Hilclare LED range, this enables you to save even greater levels of energy and money, by up to 80%.
  • Greenhouse gas emissions associated with LED lights are considerably lower than incandescent or compact fluorescent lights. According to calculations, one LED bulb providing the same luminosity as one incandescent bulb emits 80% less greenhouse gases.Furthermore, another LED alternative, Halogen Bulbs use around 5 times more energy and have much shorter lifespans than LED’s.
  • Longer maintenance cycles.
