Energy-saving investment credit (EIA): Tax Reduction for Investments in Energy Saving Equipment and Sustainable Energy

Last updated: 3 October 2019

The tax scheme known as EIA (Energy-saving investment credit) aims to save the use of fossil energy by stimulating investment in energy efficient assets and renewable energy technologies. An investment in an asset is eligible for EIA when it is more energy efficient than the standard equipment used and it therefore meets the generic efficiency criteria of EIA. Companies can deduct from the taxable profit 41,5% of investments in equipment related to energy conservation and renewable energy. At a taxation level of 25% for Dutch businesses, the EIA amounts to a net discount of approximately 10% of the investment costs.
