Excise tax refunds

Excise tax is unique to petrol and is the toll that Waka Kotahi NZTA uses to fund roading projects. If you buy and use petrol off road within your business, then you may be eligible for an excise tax refund.

You can claim back $0.76c +GST per litre on the last two years’ worth of use and then make a claim every following quarter. Every time you fill up your tank or jerry can, you may be due an excise tax refund.

Claiming is simple and can be done through one of two ways;

  • Complete the documentation through the NZTA website on a quarterly basis.  We will send your quarterly purchase summary direct to you to enable you to complete this process.
  • Alternatively, we have teamed up with Catalyst Fuel Refunds who can assist you with this process.  Registration is free and they offer a no refund, no fee policy.  As a result of this partnership, they can access all your purchase information directly from us, and you don’t need to lift a finger hunting out old receipts.   Catalyst are our preferred refund agent and we recommend them to our customers.  Find out more information here.
