Did you meet the CCL deadline?

Today marks the deadline for NFU Climate Change Levy (CCL) scheme participants to complete their Online CCL Data return.

Although we have indeed received the majority of CCL Data returns from our members on the scheme, for this reporting period (2017/18), some are still outstanding.

So, if you have not completed your CCL Data return yet, don’t worry!! The online website is still open and a return can be made. Please visit and log in using the credentials we issued to you in December 2017. If you have lost these give me a call on the number below.

Remember, it is compulsory to complete your CCL Data Return as mentioned in your Climate Change Agreement. If you don’t you run the risk of receiving penalties and HRMC retrospectively claiming back CCL discount you have received.

Once you have completed your data return, you will be issued a performance report which considers how viable it is to remain in the CCL scheme. With CCL relief rates increasing in April 2019, the CCL scheme becomes more viable to members so no decision should be made to leave the CCL scheme until you have reviewed the report.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to reassure you should you find that you haven’t met your Target Period reductions. Remember, you are eligible to claim CCL relief until June 2019 and will be given the option of paying a buyout fee in order to continue to claim CCL relief thereafter.

If you have any questions or need any assistance with your data return please give me a call on 024 7669 3043.
