The Government’s Water Technology List (WTL) promotes products that encourage sustainable water use and rewards businesses for investing in them through the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme.

The ECA allows a business to offset the cost of purchasing eligible plant and machinery against its taxable profits.  The bespoke system was built to facilitate:

  • Investigation of the scheme in order to understand the benefits
  • Understanding of whether a product, service or technology is appropriate for the scheme
  • Knowing the criteria against which a product or service is assessed
  • Making an application to have a product or service assessed against the requirements of the scheme
  • Knowing what information is needed and how to provide it
  • Knowing where to turn if there are questions about making an application
  • Managing the application process, how long it will take for the application to be reviewed and informing the supplier
  • Maintaining the list of approved products, services, manufacturers and suppliers
