What oils are we talking about?

Hi
Interesting thread - just trying to understand what duty people are claiming.
Petrol is clearly heavily taxed and for a petrol driven 'commercial boat' there would be a huge benefit.
Diesel 'commercial boat' would normaly be fuelled with Red diesel - so I cant see there being a further duty to claim?

Second question
Is there any difference in the registration process (SSR?) to classify the boat as 'Commercial' or 'Pleasure'?

Thanks
PB

Yes there is, but it's only a few pence - just under 10p per litre currently.

You need to satisfy the revenue that you are claiming back for bona vide business use. If you look at the web site - I posted the link for the FAQ's in another post on here, you can see what is applicable and what is not. There is also a minimum claim of 250

We buy 99% of our fuel from a marina on account so have detailed records for the revenue should they wish to see it. We are also a registered business operating both charter and training. There are some exclusions re chartering so beware of the wording.

Tim has posted the rates and a phone number, I have posted a link to the FAQ's. It's all there is black and white.
