Protection Label

Exclamation This Ruling provides you with the following level of protection:

This publication (excluding appendixes) is a public ruling for the purposes of the Taxation Administration Act 1953.

A public ruling is an expression of the Commissioner's opinion about the way in which a relevant provision applies, or would apply, to entities generally or to a class of entities in relation to a particular scheme or a class of schemes.

If you rely on this ruling, we must apply the law to you in the way set out in the ruling (or in a way that is more favourable for you if we are satisfied that the ruling is incorrect and disadvantages you, and we are not prevented from doing so by a time limit imposed by the law). You will be protected from having to pay any underpaid tax, penalty or interest in respect of the matters covered by this ruling if it turns out that it does not correctly state how the relevant provision applies to you.

Withdrawal

1. This Ruling is withdrawn and ceases to have effect on 1 July 2012. The Ruling continues to apply, in respect of the fuel tax law ruled upon, to all taxpayers within the specified class who acquire, manufacture in, or import into Australia, taxable fuel before 1 July 2012. Thus, the Ruling continues to apply to those taxpayers, even following its withdrawal, who acquire taxable fuel prior to the withdrawal of the Ruling (see paragraph 46 of TR 2006/10).
