APPLICATION ROUNDS

The EIA scheme has different submission periods. These periods depend on the type of investment costs (purchase costs or production costs) for which you apply.

EIA IN BRIEF

Are you interested in gaining tax benefits for your company? With the Energy Investment Allowance (EIA, in Dutch: Energie-investeringsaftrek) you pay less tax when you invest in CO2 reduction, energy-efficient technologies and/or sustainable energy. 45.5% of the investment costs can be deducted from the taxable profit (on top of the usual depreciation).The average benefit from this scheme is 11%. And your investment lowers the energy bill.

Themes within EIA

  • Commercial buildings
  • Processes
  • Means of transport
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy balancing
  • Energy transition
  • Energy advice, customised advice and CO2 emission reduction plan

For whom?

  • Enterprises

For what?

  • Investments which are listed on the Energy List 2022 are eligible for the EIA.

Budget

  • The budget for the EIA in 2022 is 149 million euros.

TERMS OF ELIGIBILITY

  • You are an entrepreneur in the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten or the BES islands.
  • You pay income tax or company tax.
  • Your investment is included in the Energy List 2022 (referred to as ‘company resources’).
  • The company resource meets the requirements in the Energy List.
  • The company resource has not been used before.
  • You report the company resource on time (main rule: within 3 months after the order to supply).

Are you investing in energy saving, but this investment is not specifically mentioned in the Energy List? In that case, your project may be eligible too, under a ‘generic’ code. Think of projects to improve existing processes or to build new buildings.
