Fuel tax credit rates have increased
The ATO have notified us that Fuel tax credit rates have increased for fuel acquired from 1 August 2015, due to a rise in the consumer price index (CPI).
Laws have passed that mean excise duty rates will continue to be indexed in line with CPI in February and August each year. This means fuel tax credit rates will also continue to be indexed twice a year.
