    How to complete your claim

    Attention

    End of attention

    On your BAS, you must record at fuel tax credit label 7D:

    • your fuel tax credit entitlement for the tax period
    • any adjustments attributed to the tax period that will increase your entitlement to fuel tax credits.

    If you need to make an adjustment in the tax period that will decrease your entitlement to fuel tax credits, you must include this at fuel tax credit label 7C.

    Only record the whole dollar amount – leave off any cents.

    Attention

    You must claim any outstanding fuel tax credits within four years of the end of the tax period to which they apply. You can do this using your current BAS rather than revising an earlier BAS that relates to the date of the tax invoice.

    Your fuel tax credits at label 7D will be offset against any fuel tax credit over claim (label 7C) for the current period, as well as any other outstanding tax obligations or some Australian Government debts you may have.
