New fuel duty

The new fuel duty from 1st December is:

Unleaded - 0.5235p/l and Red is now, and wait for this number - 0.10007p/l.

I got this from the revenue this afternoon.

what proceedure?

Hi

Re using diesel for commecial use.
What is the proceedure? do you fill up and then claim the duty back? or by 'declaring commercial' do you not pay the duty at point of purchase?

ps I have understood the new 60/40 split for the occasions the boat is used for leisure only.
many thanks Paul

We just declare comercial when we fill up the commercial vessels and do not pay the duty, and what percentage we want for the pleasure boats at this time of year thats 10/90 (10% propulsion 90% generation/heating)

Solent Ranger, would you like to clarify this a wee bit. Is this the duty for commercial use as of 1st December? Since you are giving a comparison with unleaded petrol, it looks as though you may be suggesting leisure red diesel is at this duty rate. Are you saying this?

Think he is trying to say that this is how much a commercial operator can claim back per litre for petrol and for deisel.

The 60/40 split does not come into it if you operate boats on a commercial basis.
Problem with a deisel rib unles it is a cabin rib and has a ebesbacher ? heater
users are going to see there running costs going up by quite a large amount .
Merry Christmas

as a commercial operator you have always been able to claim the duty as well as the vat back on both petrol and diesel

If anyone has not received their fuel reclaim for 2009 it may be worth a telephone call. I checked and my claim is not registered this year, had all previous claims on record but not 2009. I am having to re-submit claim

Telephone number direct to the centre ignoring the HM Customs help line 0845 which was as much help as a chocolate tea pot is 0191 225 9625 and the lady here is very helpful
