Making the most of going green

Chartered Accountants Haines Watts has teamed up with green technology specialist, Dodds Limited, to deliver a seminar to business about the benefits of ‘going green’ at Hull’s premier and award winning landmark, The Deep.

Martin Bleasby, renewables development director at Dodds Limited, said: “Hull is already leading the way in its adoption of green technologies such as wind and tidal power. New advances in technology and government incentives now mean that we can also be at the forefront of other technologies such as solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, biomass, heat pumps and anaerobic digestion.

“Aside from being kind to the environment, choosing ‘green’ is increasingly important for many businesses. However, a green strategy for business investment is not just about cost. In the majority of cases it can reduce energy bills and generate a new revenue stream.

“Working with Haines Watts, we will be delivering a free seminar which will give companies an overview of the latest technology, and details of how to make the most of tax reliefs and incentives.”

Haines Watts tax manager, Nolan Gooch, added: “We see green technologies as a huge potential growth area. We are currently helping many local businesses take advantage of what can be significant tax savings in the current tough economic climate.”

The seminar will examine tax implications for business and cover the potential of renewable technologies such as photovoltaic and biomass within a greener business strategy.

The seminar will be held on the 9th of October at The Deep in Hull, 8.30am for a light breakfast, starting at 9am for an 11am close. Free parking is available.
