Changes to the Climate Change Levy rates – 2021

Climate Change Levy is a UK wide tax on energy and fuels which are purchased by businesses and the public sector, introduced in 2001, The main rates are paid by suppliers to the government, who then pass on these costs to their non-domestic customers via their utility bills.

The Finance Bill 2019/2020 will continue to re-balance the electricity and gas main rates of CCL to incentivise more efficient energy and carbon savings.

The electricity rate will be lowered in 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 and the gas rate will increase in these years so that it reaches 60% of the electricity rate by 2021/2022.

The reduced rates for sectors with Climate Change Agreements will change so that businesses in the scheme will only be subject to an increase to their CCL liability in line with the Retail Price Index.
