    Label B: Quantity in dutiable units (other than blended fuels)

    The quantity in dutiable units (or dutiable quantity) is the amount or volume of product you have delivered into home consumption and are liable to pay excise duty on.

    Most excise tariff items listed in the tariff schedule have a specified measurement unit known as a dutiable unit. Dutiable units include:

    • kilograms of compressed natural gas
    • litres of fuel (other than blended fuels)
    • litres of alcohol.

    As excise duty is not payable on the first 1.15% of alcohol content in beer, use the following formula when calculating the dutiable quantity of beer products:

    Total litres of beer × (alcohol strength − 1.15%) = dutiable quantity

    For products other than alcohol, report dutiable quantity to two decimal places. For alcohol products, report to one decimal place.

    Provide the quantity in dutiable units at label B.

    Label B: Quantity in dutiable units (blended fuels including biofuel blends)

    Blended fuels are products listed under tariff item numbers 10.710.12 and 10.30.

    The dutiable quantity for blended fuels is the total quantity of the blend in litres, regardless of whether duty has been paid.

    Report dutiable quantity for blended fuels to two decimal places.

    Provide the total quantity of the blend at label B.

    Label C: Statistical quantity (for blended fuel including biofuel blends)

    Excise tariff items for blended fuel also have a second measurement unit type, known as statistical quantity.

    The statistical quantity is the proportion of the blended product which is biodiesel, ethanol or water. Report this as a whole amount with no decimal places.

    Provide the statistical quantity of the product at label C.

    Label D: Duty rate

    Each excise tariff item listed in the tariff schedule has a rate of excise duty.

    If you don't know which tariff item applies, refer to the applicable excise rates

    Label E: Excise amount

    The excise amount is the amended excise liability (if any) for each line entered on the form. When you fill in the form online, for products other than blended fuels, the excise amount is calculated for you (multiplying the quantity in dutiable units (label B) by the rate of excise duty (label D).

    If you are reporting blended fuels, deduct any excise duty previously paid and provide the net amount at label E.
