We will review your accounts and obtain missed fuel rebate benefits and ensure your entitlements are maximised and corrected and then help you get on track and stay on track, reviewing on an ongoing basis
Fuel tax credits rates 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.
The amount depends on when you acquire the fuel, what fuel you use and the activity you use it in. To that we have developed some useful tools where we can work out which of your business activities are eligible and what rates apply, and a process to help you work out your current claim and any back claims.
The four years starts the day after you were required to lodge the activity statement for the tax period in which the fuel was acquired, so don’t hesitate and email us at email@example.com to review your rebates.

We find that whilst most businesses are claiming the Fuel Tax rebates, its common that they are not maximising their entitlements.
We can also prepare future claims and assist by ensuring that entitlements are optimised, that all eligible activities are included and that the claim is correct.

We can ensure that entitlements are not continuing to be missed. Fuel tax credit rates change regularly. They are indexed twice a year – in February and August – based on the upward movement of the consumer price index (CPI).
Fuel tax credit rates may also change in July for fuel used in a heavy vehicle for travelling on public roads. This is due to changes to the road user charge, which is reviewed annually. In July 2021, rates also changed for biodiesel (B100) due to an annual increase in excise duty rates.
In the unlikely event that you receive no benefit, we receive no fee.
No benefit, no fee.
