Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs) enable a business to claim
100% first-year capital allowances on their spending on qualifying
plant and machinery. There are three schemes for ECAs:
- Energy-saving plant and machinery
- Low carbon dioxide emission cars and natural gas and hydrogen
- Water conservation plant and machinery
Businesses can write off the whole of the capital cost of their
investment in these technologies against their taxable profits of
the period during which they make the investment.
