Do I qualify for EIA?

The Energy Investment Allowance (EIA) is a scheme for companies, not for private individuals, associations or foundations.

Requirements to qualify for EIA

  • You are an entrepreneur in the Netherlands, Aruba, Curacao, Sint Maarten or the BES Islands;
  • you pay income or company tax;
  • you make an investment which is included in the Energy List (these are referred to as company resources in the Energy List);
  • the company resource meets the requirements for the Energy List.
  • The company resource has not been used before.
  • You report the company resource on time (main rule: within three months after the order to supply).

If your investment is not on the Energy List

To have your investment included in the Energy List, take the following steps:

1.    establish that it saves energy;
2.    see if you can report the investment under a generic code;
3.    submit a proposal to include the investment in the 2020 Energy List.
