Do you qualify for a refund?

Excise duty is imposed by the government and is unique to petrol. If you buy and use petrol off-road within your business then you may be eligible for a petrol refund.

The current excise rate is 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 cents on 1 July 2020. Claims are paid at the excise rate for the period the fuel was purchased, not the current rate, so historic claims will use different excise rates than today’s 76 cents +GST amount.

Many businesses are still not claiming. Often they are unaware or have found the complicated process not worth the hassle. That’s where we come in.  Give us a call on 0800 47 37 27 or click below to register and find out what you could be owed today.

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.
