Tim do you claim duty back on all the fuel you buy for the boats or are their ant terms and conditions attached to the relief..

I must get it together to do this ( i hate forms) as our fuel burn last year was over 7k and that's a lot of Duty

Keep good records! They get suspicious of people who burn large amounts of petrol, think we may be using it in our cars! Found out by accident that a friend was the subject of an undercover investigation to confirm his usage, only had a 15Hp outboard on a 16' lobster boat. He never knew anything about it.

This is interesting, especially with the guzzling habit I've got.
So are you saying it is technically possible for me to claim duty back, or only if I'm a commercial user? What defines commercial? I burn so much petrol it would make sense to start a company purely for refuelling the boat!
