Rules for working out fuel tax in other cases of blends

43-7(6)  
For the purposes of working out under subsection 43-5(2) the *effective fuel tax payable on taxable fuels that are blends other than blends to which any of subsections (1), (2), (3) or (5) of this section apply, the Commissioner may determine, by legislative instrument, rules for working out the proportions of one or more of the constituents of the blends.

Note:

The rules may make different provision for different blends or different classes of blends (see subsection 33(3A) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 ).

Working out the fuel tax for certain fuels containing ethanol or biodiesel

43-7(7)  


Work out the *effective fuel tax under subsection 43-5(2) for taxable fuel:


(a) that you acquired, manufactured or imported; and


(b) that is, or is a blend containing, ethanol or *biodiesel; and


(c) to which neither subsection (1) nor (2) of this section applies;

as if all the ethanol or biodiesel were manufactured or produced in Australia.

Note:

As you may not know whether the ethanol or biodiesel is imported or manufactured domestically, this subsection requires you to work out the effective fuel tax assuming that they were manufactured domestically.
