English translation:tax deductible house improvement costs
Explanation:
This, I believe, was an idea intended to keep the building trade going during the last financial crisis.

Tax relief was given for documented improvements and upgrading of insulation and energy use.
The calculations are based on tradesmen's invoices.

Of course there are rules for when improvements qualify for tax relief, but the scheme is now permanent.
