GN11-02: Climate Change Levy as it affects rural businesses
Climate Change levy is a key part of the Government's climate change programme. Unlike other EU states, the UK has imposed the levy only on business use of energy. The levy raised is recycled through reductions in employer's National Insurance contributions.
Unfortunately, many rural businesses will be relatively intensive users of energy, and may not have many employees. Thus the levy falls disproportionately heavily on rural business, and farming in particular.
