Fuel Tax Credits

Fuel tax credits provide businesses with a credit for the fuel tax (excise or customs duty) that's included in the price of fuel used in:


  • machinery

  • plant

  • equipment

  • heavy vehicles.


The amount depends on when you acquire the fuel, what fuel you use and the activity you use it in. Fuel tax credits rates also change regularly so it's important to check the rates each time you do your business activity statement (BAS).


Some fuels and activities are not eligible including fuel you use in light vehicles of 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM) or less, travelling on public roads.


If you are a small business in Melton and are using a vehicle of 4.5 GVM or greater than contact your Jeffkins Accountancy - Melton Accountants and we can assist you to register for fuel tax credits.
