Subsidies? I don't get subsidies. The capital investment is all mine.

I thought you said this was a business.  Now you say the investment is
'all yours'.

Which is it?

It makes a difference which it is.  If a business (expense), it can be
used as a deduction; personal, no such thing.  In the end, it can make a
sizable impact as to the total cost.

Secondly, an individual will probably finance the expense, meaning
interest, translating into a greater expense.

So, take your 11690 + VAT (2221) + interest (5900, 10yrs @ 7.5%) and you
come up w/ a total cost of 19811 which is approaching TWICE your
original net quote.

Not cheap bro, not cheap.

I bet in Germany you can put it on your mortgage, which is probably fixed
around 4%. In the UK you probably could as well, it is a home-improvement
with a 10years guarantee afterall.
