• 9. Income tax - Clean energy fuel tax amendments

    Pauline then provided an overview of the new clean energy measures which will take effect from 1 July. Pauline pointed out that the ATO website includes tools and calculators which the ATO has developed to assist claimants. The principles of the new measures are:

    • fuel tax credit reduction
    • aviation fuel excise increase
    • reduction in remission for non-transport Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to raise any industry issues, and
    • opting-in to the carbon pricing mechanism (CPM) for liquid fuels.

    The ATO will provide the link to the ATO website to members for the new clean energy measures.
