Fuel Schemes


Fuel schemes provide credits and grants to reduce the costs of some fuels or to provide a benefit to encourage the recycling of waste oils. 

There are different types of fuel schemes.

  • Fuel Tax Credits - provides you with a credit for the fuel tax (excise or customs duty) included in the price of fuel you use for your business activities.  You must be registered for both GST and fuel tax credits before you can make a claim. You claim fuel tax credits on your business activity statement (BAS).
  • Cleaner Fuels Grant Scheme - is the making of or importing of fuels which have a lesser impact on the environment.
  • Product Stewardship for Oil Program - is aimed at supporting and encouraging environmentally sustainable management of used oil.  This includes recycling used oil and the use of recycled oil.
  • Energy Grants Credits Scheme - is a fuel grant for businesses using alternative fuel or running a road transport business or operating vehicles with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) or 4.5 or more, but less than 20 tonnes.
