Fuel tax credits (FTC) in Australia provide businesses of all sizes with a credit for the fuel tax (excise or customs duty) that’s included in the price of fuel used in heavy vehicles (over 4.5 tonnes), light vehicles (under 4.5 tonnes) travelling off public roads or on private roads—such as road repair vehicles or farming vehicles driving on private property, machinery, plant and equipment.

You can claim FTC for eligible fuel you purchase, manufacture or import for use in your business. The credit amount you receive back depends on when you acquire the fuel, what type of fuel you use and the activity in which you use it.

Visit the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website for full details:

Absolutely! GPS tracking technology, in partnership with a comprehensive fleet management solution, can improve your fuel tax credit (FTC) claim by capturing and using substantiated vehicle data.

Lodging FTC claims using GPS data helps to optimise your claim, save administration time, improve your claim accuracy, reduce the risk (and penalties) for over-claiming, streamline the claiming process and ensure maximum rebate claims.

Confidently lodge your claims using GPS-verified data, safe in the knowledge that you’ve captured all eligible fuel consumption.

Businesses using the following liquid fuels may be eligible for fuel tax credits: petrol, diesel and other fuels including kerosene, mineral turpentine, white spirit, toluene, heating oil and some solvents.

Gaseous fuels used in business activities which may be eligible for credits include: liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG).

NB: Not all fuels are eligible for fuel tax credits. A full and current list of eligible liquid or gaseous fuels can be found on the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website. Likewise, not all activities are eligible for fuel tax credits. To help you work out which of your business activities you can claim for, along with the applicable rates, we recommend you use the fuel tax credit eligibility tool on the ATO website.

Fuel tax credits can be claimed at the time of fuel acquisition. Any claims must be lodged within the four-year time limit.

If you forget to claim your fuel tax credits, or wish to amend a claim, you can do so for up to four years retrospectively, from the day after you were required to lodge a BAS for the tax period in which the fuel was acquired.

Visit the ATO for more details on fuel tax credit claim amendments.

There is a misconception that ‘off-road’ refers to country, dirt or outback locations, but this is not the case! Off-road locations may also include airports, shipping ports, carparks, warehouses and anywhere your vehicles travel that is a certain distance off the main road. For example, delivery drivers who travel off the main road into driveways, depots or worksites to make deliveries.

Is your fleet used for building roads or other civil projects? Set off-road locations using our platforms geo-fence location—for a period of time while projects are in progress—and maximise your fuel tax credit entitlements.
