An entity gets a fuel tax disadvantage from a *scheme if:


(a) an *amount that is payable by the entity under this Act apart from this Division is, or could reasonably be expected to be, larger than it would have been apart from the scheme or a part of the scheme; or


(b) an amount that is payable to the entity under this Act apart from this Division is, or could reasonably be expected to be, smaller than it would have been apart from the scheme or a part of the scheme; or

75-45(3)  
For the purposes of negating or reducing the loser ' s *fuel tax disadvantage from the *scheme, the Commissioner may make a declaration (under this section) stating the *amount that is (and has been at all times) the loser ' s *net fuel amount for a specified *tax period or *fuel tax return period that has ended.
