    The records you currently keep for your business will generally be enough to support your claims if they show that you did all of the following:

    • acquired the fuel
    • used it in your business
    • applied the correct rate to the correct activity when calculating your claim.

    Your records must clearly show all of the following:

    • the activity you are claiming for
    • where the activity occurred
    • the type of fuel and how much was used in each activity.

    For example, if you are claiming for street sweeping, you must include:

    • the type of fuel used
    • what proportion you are claiming for travel and what proportion for the street cleaning
    • if the activity occurred in the metropolitan area or not.

    Your records must be in English (or easily translated into English) and you must keep them for five years after you make the claim as we may ask to examine them within this period. You do not need to send your records to us unless we ask you to.
