    Excise duty is a tax on alcohol, tobacco, fuel and petroleum products (including gaseous fuels) produced or manufactured in Australia.

    Data for each financial year includes data processed up to 31 October of the following year. For example, data for the 2012–13 financial year includes data processed up to 31 October 2013.

    Totals may differ from the sum of components, due to rounding.
