Mike Manson / Business Development Executive and CEO of ALGIM

We approached Mike Manson at Palmerston North City Council to find out about processing their refund.  Here is what Mike had to say about Catalyst.  ‘We began working with Catalyst Fuel Refunds in order to initiate the Council’s Fuel Excise Duty refunds in May 2015. We found Catalyst professional at all times to deal with.  They sifted through significant amounts of source information to pick out the 200 plant items able to be claimed as well as the raw fuel card and bulk delivery data. It is a bonus to see this refunded money being reinvested back into our operational budgets with minimal time/cost to us to achieve this.  The ongoing quarterly claims are managed efficiently by Catalyst with very little input required at our end.’

Calculate your refund*

50litres per month

$602 Initial 2 year claim
$95 Ongoing claim per quarter

The amount shown above is an estimate only. The exact amount you are refunded may differ once your claim has been completed and all details have been taken into account.

How much can I get?

If your business operates petrol machinery off-road, then you are eligible for a petrol tax refund of 72 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 69 cents on 1 July 2019. Claims are paid at the excise rate for the period the fuel was used, not the current rate so historic claims will use different excise rates than today.

Catalyst makes claiming fuel refunds easy.  The staff are friendly, efficient and make the whole process simple and hassle free.

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.
