Climate Change Levy
The Climate Change Levy (CCL), introduced by the Government in 2001, is an environmental tax applied to non-domestic energy users. It aims to encourage businesses to cut back on their energy use, and do their bit to help stem the effects of global warming.
The majority of businesses are subject to the CCL, but there are exceptions. If your business, on average, uses less than 33 kWh of electricity and 145 kWh of gas per day, then you won't have to pay the CCL. These businesses also benefit from a cut in VAT rates.
If your business is subject to the CCL, then you'll be able to see how much you owe on your energy bills.
