Fuel tax credits

How to complete labels 7C and 7D on your BAS.

Last updated 3 April 2017

As a business, fuel tax credits provide you with a credit for the fuel tax (excise or customs duty) that's included in the price of fuel used in:

  • machinery
  • plant
  • equipment
  • heavy vehicles
  • light vehicles travelling off public roads or on private roads.

The credit amount depends on:

  • when you acquire the fuel
  • what fuel you use
  • the activity you use it in.

Fuel tax credits rates change regularly so it's important to check the rates each time you do your BAS.

Before you can make a claim, you must be registered for GST and fuel tax credits.
