The Climate Change Levy is paid at either the main rates or carbon price support rates.
The main rate will be paid on: electricity, gas & solid fuels – like coal, lignite, coke and petroleum coke
Main rates will be paid if your business is in one of the following sectors: industrial, commercial, agricultural & public services
You do not pay the main rate on certain supplies if you’re a business that uses small amounts of energy, a domestic energy user or a charity engaged in non-commercial activities.
It is possible to get a reduction on the main CCL rates if you’re an energy intensive business and if you participate in the climate change agreement with the Environment Agency.
