Fuel Tax Credit Reform Discussion Paper


Friday, 27 May 2005

Content ID:



In the policy document Securing Australia's Energy Future (the energy white paper) the Government announced a major programme of reform to modernise and simplify the fuel tax system. The changes will lower compliance costs, reduce tax on business and remove fuel tax from thousands of businesses and households.

As part of the reform, a new fuel tax credit system will allow business to claim their fuel tax credits through the Business Activity Statement in the same way that they claim their GST input tax credits.

The Fuel Tax Credit Reform Discussion Paper provides industry and the community with the opportunity to express their views on the proposed design of the fuel tax credit legislation.

Submission closing date: 27 June 2005.
