How much can I get?

If your business operates petrol machinery off-road, then you are eligible for a petrol tax refund of 76 cents per litre + GST.  You can claim back up to two years’ worth of use and then claim ongoing every quarter after that.  The excise rate changes periodically and increased from 72.5 cents on 1 July 2020. Claims are paid at the excise rate for the period in which the fuel was purchased, not the current rate, so historic claims will use different excise rates than today.    

How does it work?

Sam Morrah / Sheep and Beef Farmer

Couldn’t have been simpler, two phone calls and a text… then a deposit in my bank.  My accountant said it wasn’t worth it, but the refund nearly paid my accountants bill.

William Moylan / Sheep and Cropping

It’s money for jam really, we receive a phone call each quarter, email off our 3 statements and wait for the payment which is always super quick.
