How the excise tax rebate works


For years the Italian Customs Agency has been providing economic incentives for the recovery of excise taxes on diesel and fuel for many business sectors. The process for companies to obtain a tax break in the form of a rebate requires specific skills and in-depth knowledge of relevant regulations.

After the recent series of regulatory changes, excise duty on diesel is now more than €0.60 per liter. It is clear, then, how saving around 70% of this expense is as important as ever for the finances of companies that use construction machinery, special vehicles, and work vehicles.

To obtain the €0.43 excise tax rebate per liter of fuel used to produce motor power, certified data acquisition tools (i.e., fiscal metering systems that record the parameters stipulated in Circular 5/D) are required, as well as a set of administrative procedures and protocols laid down by the Italian Customs Agency, and specific technical documentation to support periodic refund requests.

WAY offers the market a clear and comprehensive service which includes a free feasibility assessment, the management of technical services & the supply and installation of the fiscal metering system, and the administrative management of all paperwork. All this is supported by cutting-edge technology that  reads vehicle data and GPS tracking remotely.
