Home Renovation Incentive Scheme (HRI) & SEAI Grants
All current EnerGlaze work qualifies under the Home Renovation Incentive Scheme – Until December 2018.
The Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) scheme enables homeowners and landlords to claim tax relief of 13.5% (VAT) on repairs, renovations or improvement work carried out on their main home or rental property by tax-compliant contractors.
The HRI is paid in the form of a tax credit at 13.5% of qualifying expenditure, which can be set against your income tax over 2 years. This effectively reduces the rate of VAT to zero on qualifying work (up to a value of €30,000).
There are significant grants available for qualifying homes under the SEAI Better Homes scheme. SEAI grants cover such energy upgrades as:
|Energy Efficient Measures||Grant Value|
|Heating Controls upgrade||€700|
|Solar Thermal grant||€1200|
|Building Energy Rating (BER)||€50|
