From 1 July 2008 more businesses can claim fuel tax credits for the fuel they acquire and use in a range of business activities, machinery, plant, equipment and heavy vehicles. The only fuels that are not eligible are aviation fuels, alternative fuels and fuels used in light vehicles of 4.5 tonne gross vehicle mass (GVM) or less travelling on a public road (for example, a car or small van).

The amount businesses can claim is 18.51, 19.0715 or 38.143 cents per litre depending on how the fuel is used.
