Climate Change Levy (CCL) is a tax on the use of energy in industry, commerce and the public sector, with offsetting cuts in employers’ National Insurance Contributions and additional support for energy efficiency schemes and renewable sources of energy. It is part of a range of measures that are designed to help the UK meet its legally binding commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
All electricity suppliers are required to collect CCL from their customers and this is automatically included on your bill.
Energy intensive businesses may be entitled to a reduction in the amount of CCL charged. If your business is in an energy intensive sector and you enter into a Climate Change agreement with the government to meet certain energy saving targets negotiated for your sector, you could be entitled to a reduction. Prior to 1 April 2011 this reduction was set at 80 percent of the rate of CCL. However, with effect from 1 April 2011 this was reduced to 65 percent and changed again in April 2013 to 90 percent.
To ensure that we apply the reduction to your supply, you will need to complete forms PP10 and PP11, returning PP10 to HM Revenue and Customs and PP11 to Haven Power before Supply Start Date. For further details visit HM Revenue and Customs website.
