Wish we could pay 36p per litre at the pumps - and remember that price is WITH the current high oil prices!!!

Hi Codprawn i pay 99p a litre at a waterside fuel berth so getting the excise duty back does help keep the overheads down.

Duty claim

Codprawn is right. There is only ULS petrol in the country (no unleaded at all) and thus you must fill in the ULS section of the HO50 form.

This confuses many as what you buy at the pumps says unleaded.

Dont forget to claim the VAT on the petrol and then the duty bring the litre price to under 20p.

There is a thing called adval in Customs and an inspector with little knowledge of duty rebates may challenge the amount of VAT you claim. If you think about it you are claiming the amount of VAT on the whole price (ie. Pertol cost plus duty).

The good news is that in the case of petrol this is quite acceptable ie. you claim the full VAT on the full purchase price.

Other rules can come into play such as to claim Duty it is expected (though I am not sure whether it is in statute) that you are VAT registered. From that to zero rate your passenger supply you are expected to have a vessel licence for a minimum of 12 passengers.

And for those who use diesel and may not be very interested on these points then you may be interested to know that there is 4p duty on red that you can claim.

Cheers

John

Is this a question of labelling not catching up? Does fuel sold as ULS now mean 50ppm (as oposed to the "old" 150ppm) or is it the fledgling 10ppm fuel that is becoming available (and compulsory by 2009) against the 50ppm..?
Lawyers, step forward...

Ppm

Jono,

You lost me on this one.

When I was at Uni many years ago ppm was parts mer million. I can only guess you refer to lead levels rather than octane. Please enlighten or post that I am simply being dull.

In respect of your claim then if you are claiming for several boats as we do then give me a bell (office 01437721911 or workshop 01437721113) and I will explain the prefered method of HMC&E and it will also save you a lot of paper.

Cheers

John
