• # Fuel tax credits calculation worksheet

If you claim under \$10,000 in fuel tax credits in a year there are simpler ways to record and calculate your claim.

## How to work out your fuel tax credits

There are three steps to calculate your fuel tax credits using our Worksheet.

### Step 1: Work out your eligible quantities

Work out how much fuel (liquid or gaseous) you acquired for each business activity.

### Step 2: Check which rate applies for the fuel

Fuel tax credit rates change regularly. You need to check you are using the rate that applied when you acquired the fuel, including fuel used in heavy vehicles.

### Step 3: Work out the amount of your fuel tax credits

Multiply the eligible quantity of fuel by the relevant fuel tax credit rate (step 1 × step 2). You must divide the result by 100 to convert it into dollars. Claim the whole dollar amount on your BAS. Do not include cents.
