Introduction and overview of oils activity: roles and responsibilities: Fuel duties policy team

Fuel Duties Policy Team

This team - part of Customs & Indirect Tax Policy, within Customer Strategy & Tax Design (CS&TD) - is , along with other excise policy teams, responsible for developing, maintaining and implementing oils law, interpreting this and explaining it for the benefit of oils assurance officers and other staff in the department who are concerned with oils and other energy products. Organisational Design (OD) in late 2017 decided on a split of Policy into two halves -  Design and Delivery. Staff may move between these two teams as necessary.

This includes:

  • Providing advice to ministers on new policy concerning the scope of taxation in relation to transport (Design).
  • Advising ministers and colleagues on new policy formulation, business changes, specialist policy matters, legislative procedures, in particular where there may be political sensitivities (Design or Delivery).
  • New policy/business direction and setting objectives Design or Delivery).
  • Representing the department at technical meetings with ministers, external organisations, trade bodies or their representatives (Design or Delivery).
  • Developing internal and external guidance (Delivery).
  • Dealing with queries that cannot be resolved either locally or by the virtual Unit of Expertise (UoE) (Delivery).
