I wasn't talking about RIBs - I was on about people with a 40' Fairline or Princess.

Continue to pay the lower rate just as you always have done.

Red is red is red...unless Customs change the colours for agri use or you can't come up with a good reason why you're using so much for agri.

Wouldn't fancy being caught at it though and they have a habit of dipping diesel vehicles that are used in close proximity to big red tanks.

Stop the press!

"Red diesel VAT twist confirmed by HMRC...

The tale of red diesel has taken another dramatic twist with confirmation that all the fuel you take on from 1 November will be hit with a VAT rate of just 5%.

This is an abrupt shift in position from HM Revenue & Customs after briefing previously that 60% of your fuel would attract full VAT of 17.5%.

The reason for the about face is not known at present, but it is good news for boaters, and should mean prices stay below 1 a litre based on a current pump price of 70ppl."

Good, but what an about turn!?

In fairness HMRC didn't want this extra duty - it was our spineless government refusing to stand up to the EU - prob because 1/2 the Eurocrats come from the Labour party!!!
