EIA in brief

Does your company invest in CO2 reduction, energy-efficient technologies and sustainable energy? Then you may be eligible for the Energy Investment Deduction (EIA) scheme. For such an investment, you can deduct 45.5% of the investment costs from your fiscal profit. For 2021, there is a budget of € 149 million. The average benefit from the scheme is roughly 11%. And the advantage of the EIA to entrepreneurs is two-fold: your energy costs go down and you pay less tax.
