Restructure yourself out of the German renewable energy surcharge (EEG)!
Energy-intensive enterprises have the opportunity to exempt themselves from surcharges according to the German law for renewable energy, EEG. Various criteria must be fulfilled to be eligible: in particular, a significantly high amount of energy consumption must be proven on a yearly basis through the presentation of authoritative, audit-proof, and compliant calculation documents. Even for medium-sized companies with appropriate energy intensity, costs for the Renewable Energy Law levy can run into the 7-digit Euro range.
Many companies have energy-intensive areas, but overall they do not fulfill the criteria for exemption from the EEG surcharge. In order to exempt a company or parts of it, complex restructuring requirements for the entire business, in some cases even leading to a complete capsulation of energy-intensive parts, might become a necessity. However, the expected return of investment (ROI) is considerably attractive for many enterprises.

SAP implications detected and evaluated. As early as possible.
During the examination of the eligibility to apply according to §63ff EEG by Warth & Klein Grant Thornton, GAMBIT records the current SAP configuration using EEG-specific questionnaires. We check adjustment requirements and possible implementation variants by taking the following criteria into account:
- General feasibility
- Complexity of implementation and target process
- Time, costs, and amortization (ROI)
Planned security. Minimization of risk. Compliance.
The results of the joint analysis flow into the overall assessment of eligibility to apply, done by Warth & Klein Grant Thornton. This assessment provides security that the savings achieved through the exemption from the EEG will not be (over)compensated by implementation and/or increased process costs.
Warth & Klein Grant Thornton and GAMBIT have formulated proven implementation plans for various forms of organizational and entity redesign. Required adjustments for operative SAP and third-party systems can thus be prepared and implemented hand-in-hand with business and tax law concerns.
The implementation of certifiable reporting packages ensures the permanence of the exemption by fulfilling the criteria to be considered an energy-intensive company.
