HOW IT WORKS
Pumping petrol tax refunds into your account
All petrol sold in New Zealand has 80 cents per litre added to it by the New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA). This is known as excise duty and is designed to help fund the costs of the road network.
When this petrol is used by businesses that operate vehicles or machinery off the public road, the excise duty can be claimed back. However, many businesses don’t know this – or the complicated claim process makes it not worth the hassle.
That’s where NZ Petrol Refunds comes in. Our 5-step process could save you thousands of dollars every year.
1. Get in touch
Call us or send an email. We’ll arrange to visit your business (if practicable) or set up a phone or Skype meeting to start your claim.
2. Gather information
Claim back your road tax on petrol used in mowers, outdoor power equipment, rollers and off-road vehicles.
3. We submit your claim
Once we have all your information we will deal directly with the NZTA on your behalf. We submit a claim to the NZTA for the last 24 months of your petrol usage. That’s eight separate claims – one for each financial quarter.
4. Get your first refund
When the NZTA pays out your first claim, we will forward payment to your bank account minus our fees.
5. Ongoing refunds every quarter
NZ Petrol Refunds will then file refund claims every three months based on your petrol purchases and usage for that quarter.
