Significant tax breaks for efficient laundries

In an increasingly competitive business world, companies of all sizes and from all sectors need to be ever more watchful of the bottom line. Remaining one step ahead of the competition is vital, and to do that owners, directors and managers need to investigate every avenue of potential success.

One of the more intriguing ways to increase profitability will also prove to be more beneficial to the environment as well. Thanks to tax breaks which have become available via the Climate Change Agreement (CCA), participating businesses will be able to reclaim significant sums of money if they meet specified energy reduction targets.

These tax breaks will enable organisations to reclaim up to 90% of the climate change levy for electricity and up to 65% for gas. The commercial laundry sector as a whole has been actively encouraging greener initiatives for many years, and this latest development will be welcomed by owners and managers in a broad spectrum of organisations.

Of course, appliances which are as state of the art as it gets will also prove to be more efficient than older designs. This is good news for companies which choose to rent or buy the very latest Miele washing machines, dishwashers, glasswashers and tumble dryers.

There are several ways to improve efficiency in a laundry room. They include:

  • Using the most energy efficient appliances
  • Choosing faster wash cycles
  • Consuming lower amounts of water and detergent
  • Keeping commercial laundry equipment correctly maintained

The impressive results achieved by Miele have been noticed by the authorities as well as key figures in the industry. The company’s washing machines are included on the Water Technology List (WTL), a government initiative that’s designed to encourage sustainable water usage in the business world. Yet another good reason to choose Miele.

Further tax relief options are available via the Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme, which rewards businesses which choose to invest in energy-saving equipment. A wide range of Miele professional appliances meet the criteria required, so there are benefits for the investor as well as for the planet.

Miele manufacture a wide range of energy efficient appliances for care homes, hospitals, hotels, health clubs and many more establishments in the hospitality industry. Over the years, the company has built a solid reputation based on build quality, reliability, efficiency and, most important of all, superb results.

Making a difference with help from Miele

Miele washing machines are designed to last for up to 30,000 wash cycles, meaning they are as cost-effective as they are efficient. They offer glasswashers with wash cycles as short as 45 seconds, while their dishwashers can provide high quality results in as little as five minutes.

As well as shorter wash times, they have also been designed to use lower amounts of water, electricity and detergent, an important step towards becoming increasingly friendly to the environment. And as well as making your commercial laundry equipment greener, this will also help to keep your running costs down.
