GasSafe – Did you know?


Amicus Services are GasSafe registered technicians providing commercial and industrial heating services throughout Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire. For all commercial and industrial heating services by GasSafe Registered engineers, contact Amicus Services.

From April 1st 2009 GasSafe became the governing body for gas safety within the UK. The contract was previously held by Corgi.

You should ensure that operatives working on your gas appliances are registered with GasSafe. Corgi does still exist as an industry organisation and many gas engineers are a member of Corgi, but it is illegal to work on gas appliances without being a member of GasSafe.


OFTEC plays a leading role in raising standards within the heating industries of the UK and Republic of Ireland. Amicus Services are registered with Oftec to ensure that all of our work meets current legislation.

ECA – Enhanced Capital Allowances

This is a scheme run by the government whereby any business installing equipment which meets certain energy efficiency criteria can claim the cost of the equipment and its installation cost against Corporation Tax in the first year. All of the appliances we install meet the criteria for this scheme.

Normally expenditure on plant and equipment has to be written off over the length of its useful life, and this reduces your corporation tax payment by a small amount each year. Under the ECA scheme you can reduce your corporation tax payment by the whole cost in the tax year that it is installed.

For further information you should contact your accountant or visit the Government Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) Website
