HMRC RED DIESEL CONSULTATION

On 17 July, the RYA urged its members to respond to a consultation being undertaken by HMRC. The government had announced the removal of entitlement to use red diesel (rebated gas oil) from April 2022, except for the agriculture sector (including forestry, horticulture and fish farming), railways, and where red diesel is used to power non-commercial heating systems, such as in homes, narrowboats and places of worship.  The consultation seeks to gather evidence as to whether other sectors, including recreational boating, should be allowed to maintain use of the fuel beyond April 2022.  The consultation closes on 1 October.
