From 30 March 2022 until 28 September 2022, the fuel tax credit rate temporarily reduced. The fuel tax credit rate for fuel used in heavy vehicles for travelling on public roads during this period was zero cents per litre. This is because the road user charge exceeded the excise duty paid, reducing the fuel tax credit rate to nil. This does not apply to fuel used in heavy vehicles for powering auxiliary equipment of a heavy vehicle while travelling on a public road.
The tools provide clear, step-by-step instructions.
