  • Excise treatment of blends including biofuels before 1 July 2015

    Before 1 July 2015 you were required to hold a licence to blend duty paid fuel ethanol with duty paid petrol, or duty paid biodiesel with duty paid diesel – this was considered to be excise manufacture. These blends are not considered to be the product of excise manufacture if they occurred after 1 July 2015.

    Also prior to this date, the excise duty liability on domestic biodiesel and customs duty liability on imported biodiesel was offset by a cleaner fuel grant. The cleaner fuels grants scheme closed on 1 July 2015.
