Save money with ECA…

Have you heard of ECA? If not it could be worth reading on as you may be able to save some money!

ECA (Enhanced Capital Allowance) is part of a government initiative to help manage climate change. The scheme allows businesses to write off the entire cost of any green technology included on the government scheme against taxable profits, reducing the amount of tax you pay whilst saving a minimum of £1000.

We carry a range of machines from two manufacturers on the scheme, Tennant and Gansow. Two examples of the Tennant machines are the Tennant T3 50 ec-H2O walk behind scrubber dryer and the  Tennant T7 65 ec-H2O ride on scrubber dryer. They both use the Ec-H2O technology which electrically converts water into an innovative cleaning solution that cleans effectively. Tennant scrubbers equipped with ec-H2O technology can scrub up to three times longer with a single tank of water and use up to 70% less water than conventional floor scrubbing methods.

Alternatively to the Tennant machines we carry the range of Gansow Scrubber Dryers with GWS (Gansow Water Saving) . Two examples of these are the Gansow 41B walk behind scrubber dryer and the Gansow 151 ride-on scrubber dryer. The GWS technology enables the machines to clean double the floor space compared with a conventional scrubber dyer. This not only helps save water but allows your business to use a smaller machine with the productivity of a much larger machine if space is a restriction without impacting on your cleaning efficiency.    

So how does it save you money? If for example you purchased the Gansow 41B at £4299 you could put 100% of this cost against your taxable profits.  Thus reducing the balance on which you are due to pay tax. 

If this is something that may benefit your business you can view the scheme information and list of eligible machines on the government website :  or please contact us on 01684 850777 for further information.
