EV Express helps businesses to understand how installing charge points attracts additional corporation tax benefits, as part of the super deduction scheme for this financial year.
Put simply, EV charge points attract 130% tax benefits, as part of the government drive around green recovery.
Businesses who install charge points for use by their own staff or visitors to the business, also can secure savings of £350 per charge point, under the Workplace Charging Scheme. This allows for claiming for up to 40 charge points in a business (worth £14 000).
This is an overview of the process for the Workplace Charging Scheme:
Step 1 – Applicant completes online application.
Step 2 – Voucher generated.
Step 3 – Site visit carried out and quotation agreed, less grant value.
Step 4 – Installer completes installation and claims grant.
We can help businesses to claim these grants.
Businesses in the tourism and hospitality sectors cannot claim this grant funding for charge point installation, as the charge point here is used to create commercial advantage or as an income stream.

Individual EV owners also can secure savings of £350 per charge point, under the Homecharge Scheme. To qualify, the vehicle must be owned or leased by the homeowner.
There must also be off-road parking available and the charge point installation grant for that specific vehicle has not been claimed previously.
EV Express can help individuals to claim this grant.
