Green tax optimization

A green business is not necessarily an expensive business. You can, in fact, save quite a bit if you know your company’s energy consumption and expenses. Maybe you are paying too much today? Let’s find out tomorrow.

It is always nice to save money, and sometimes it is easier than you might think. For instance, you can use your company’s waste heat. The savings can be tremendous—even though there might be taxes on waste heat. It does, however, require knowledge and a deep understanding of green tax regulations. And, of course, your company’s energy consumption and possibilities.

Are you familiar with the tax rules?

Want to save money? Who does not? Avoid making mistakes when reporting your taxes. If your payment is insufficient, you can be charged with retroactive taxes. And, if you paid too much, you can be compensated for the past five years. 

Your company’s taxes cover the amount of energy you spend on electricity, gas, and oil. To cover your taxes, you must identify your company’s consumption in terms of the type of consumption and field of application. This is where we step in. We can help you make it easier to save energy costs.

Say goodbye to taxes on sale of waste heat

Until now, selling waste heat has been imposed a tax of DKK 52,5/GK equivalent to around DKK 0.18 per kWh. But this is no longer the case if your waste heat comes from facilities based on fossil fuel.

Except for energy manufacturing facilities, all companies can apply for green tax exemption. However, it does require an overview of the company’s waste heat production facility to decide whether it is energy-optimized and identify any potential for further optimization. A certified verifier must verify the examination.

Exceptions

Suppose an energy audit shows potential for energy efficiency projects with a reimbursement time of no more than five years: The company is obligated to realize the project to avoid taxes.

Keep in mind that it is not possible to receive subsidies for establishing facilities to resale waste heat instead of heat recycling projects that use waste heat in manufacturing internally.
