ECA Scheme

The Husky PRO Glass Door Fridge range (Husky C5, C8 and C10) is ECA scheme approved. This is a Government incentive for buyers of energy efficient equipment to be rewarded through the tax system with an aim to encourage end users to select equipment that will ultimately help meet the Government's climate / CO2 reduction targets.

More details on the ECA scheme:
Normally, the taxman only allows businesses to write down the cost of capital equipment over a number of years. The ECA scheme allows the business to write 100% of it down in the first year of purchase, which gives a cash flow advantage. This means that in simple terms, you get all the benefit in the first year.
In addition, if your business is paying the electricity bill for the appliance, then having selected an energy efficient model will produce further savings throughout its life.

If you are a shop or bar owner, using the appliance in your shop, and you paid for it, then you can claim the benefit. If you are buying the product to resell on to somebody else, then you cannot make use of the tax break. If you are a brand owner who is buying the cabinet to give away or to lend out, then you should be able to claim the benefit.
