    Claiming fuel tax credits

    You claim fuel tax credits on your BAS in the same way as you claim GST credits.

    For GST group representatives and other businesses with complex structures, the claiming arrangements vary. For:

    • GST groups – the representative member of the group claims fuel tax credits on behalf of the group
    • GST branches – each branch claims fuel tax credits separately from the parent entity
    • GST joint ventures – the operator claims fuel tax credits on behalf of the participants.

    If you are claiming fuel tax credits for domestic electricity generation and for eligible business activities, you must claim all of your fuel tax credits on your BAS.

    If you pay GST in instalments you can also claim fuel tax credits.

    Further information
