Technical Guidance: Duty-free/duty-paid storage

Normally duty-free gas and duty-paid gas should not be stored in the same container. If a trader wishes to make deliveries, or hold stocks for both dutiable and non-dutiable uses, the trader must:

  • maintain separate stocks; oraccount for duty at the time of drawing gas for road fuel use from stock on which duty has not been previously paid.
