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.
