    Slides and notes from today’s webinar with our technical helpdesk

You will be aware that BEIS is consulting on the future of the CCA.  The consultation is in two parts:  the first part covers reopening and extension.  The second part covers the future of the scheme beyond 2025.  We will respond to both parts. 

The proposals for the CCA extension are particularly problematic.  Current plans are that the application window for new sites will end on 30th September 2020.  This in reality means an august deadline for prepared submissions from operators who are already struggling to handle coronavirus workloads.  It also happens to be before the new targets can be set which means that operators will be applying blind.    And just to add a further bit of Kafkaesque nonsense, there is no plan to reopen the application window in January.  As if that weren’t enough BEIS proposes to add some gratuitous complexity by changing the base year to 2018 and imposing a uniform efficiency increase of 6.7%.  From a department where the raison d’etre is ostensibly to support business this is hopelessly inadequate, demonstrates a worrying lack of awareness of business processes and is generally very disappointing stuff.  Please get in touch to provide input to our response.
