A full compliance service designed specifically for the Climate Change Levy (CCL) scheme. We represent some 700 farm and nursery businesses, working in partnership with the NFU.

Eligible businesses can receive a CCL discount in return for meeting energy efficiency or carbon-saving targets and we’ve saved our sectors £millions on CCL since the introduction of the scheme in 2001.

How it works

We guide you through the whole application and ongoing reporting process and make things as easy as possible by administering the scheme on your behalf. This saves you time and hassle and makes sure that your returns are accurate and you are fully compliant.

Our CCL service is for you if:

  • You operate in the pig, poultry or horticulture sectors.
  • Your monthly energy bills are attracting CCL tax.
  • You want to improve the energy efficiency of your business.
