Why not have the Government help fund your BMS?

Updated Nov 18th

Accelerated wear and tear allowances are available to companies that purchase certain energy efficient equipment for the trade.

Instead of receiving allowances for expenditure over the standard period of eight years, allowances are granted in full in the year of acquisition.

The Government are extending the regime by three years up to accounting periods ending 31st December 2023.

The energy efficiency of the scheme will also be re-assessed.

The budget speech suggested that the scheme would be expanded, and the SEAI has authority to update the list as required.

Building Energy Management Systems [BEMS] qualify and all field devices necessary to perform the energy saving function are included in the BEMS.

With budget 2021 announced earlier this week, now is a good time to evaluate how your business might benefit from the Irish government’s willingness to borrow billions to invest in our economy. One such incentive is the Accelerated Capital Allowance (ACA), which aims to promote sustainable energy efficient businesses by offering a “sole trader, farmer or company that pays corporation tax in Ireland to deduct the full cost of the equipment from their profits in the year of purchase” (SEAI, 2020)


Benefits of BMS for your business

Upgrading your current building management system (BMS), or installing one for the first time, can result in savings of both energy and cost. Generally, a BMS has two main functions; to optimise energy efficiency of the building and provide suitable comfort and wellbeing for its occupants. A BMS will monitor key energy drainers such as lighting, heating, and cooling.
