Green taxes, reliefs and schemes for businesses

Business: Waste Environment


    Green taxes encourage your businesses to operate in a more environmentally friendly way. There are different taxes and schemes designed for different kinds and size of business.

    You may be able to get reliefs or be exempt from some taxes, eg:

    • you need to use a lot of energy because of the nature of your business
    • you’re a small business that doesn’t use much energy
    • you buy energy-efficient technology for your business

    You can also reduce your tax by applying for schemes to help you demonstrate that you’re operating more efficiently and producing less damaging waste.
