Excise on Avgas

Post by Lionel Hutz » Tue Oct 14, 2008 8:33 pm

Just a heads up.

looking through the small print in the budget it would appear that excise on avgas has been increased by 27 cents per liter.

It's seems to be only 8c a litre according to this, http://www.revenue.ie/budget/budget2009/summary.pdf
in the same catagory as petrol, see pg3 under, "Increases in Mineral Oil Tax on Petrol."

I'd say you gave a few people a bit of a shock there. :)

The mineral oil tax on petrol will be increased by 8 cent per litre (including VAT)


Far play to them anyway. Making it simpler for you and all by not given you all that added complication of haven to work out how much tax you have to pay on your tax. :roll:

Hi Guys,

Also, there is another tax being imposed on Avgas, so from the 1st of november, avgas will increase by 16c per litre on all private and recreational flights within the state (i did hear for aircraft weighing over 1.5tonnes but i cant confirm that)

Regards,

Bob sorry but the bad news is that avgas appears to have been on a lower excise rate all along and is now being brought into line with regular petrol.

from the financial resolutions.

with effect as on and from 15 October 2008

Light Oil:
Leaded petrol \553.04 per 1,000 litres
Unleaded petrol \508.79 per 1,000 litres
Super unleaded petrol \547.79 per 1,000 litres
Aviation gasoline \276.52 per 1,000 litres

Heavy Oil:
Used as a propellant with a
maximum sulphur content of 50
milligrammes per kilogramme \368.05 per 1,000 litres
Other heavy oil used as a propellant \420.44 per 1,000 litres
Kerosene used other than as a
propellant \00.00
Fuel oil \14.78 per 1,000 litres
Other heavy oil \47.36 per 1,000 litres


with effect as on and from 1 November 2008
Light Oil:
Petrol \508.79 per 1,000 litres
Aviation gasoline \508.79 per 1,000 litres
Heavy Oil:
Used as a propellant \368.05 per 1,000 litres
Used for air navigation \368.05 per 1,000 litres
Used for private pleasure navigation \368.05 per 1,000 litres
Kerosene used other than as a
propellant \00.00 per 1,000 litres
Fuel oil \14.78 per 1,000 litres
Other heavy oil \47.36 per 1,000 litres.

It looks as if they have snuck a duty on Jet fuel in as well.

So dose this mean that avgas has gone up in price from what ever it is, ie
2.02 + vat before budget
2.77 (?? not sure if it includes vat) From today on
5.09 (?? not sure if it includes vat) From 1st Nov on

That would mean in 16 days the price of avgas would have risen by
253% (assuming the priced don't include vat)
209% (If the prices do include vat)

SOMETHING WILL HAVE TO BE DONE IF THIS IS TRUE OTHERWISE GA IN IRELAND WILL END UP LOKI THE DODO BIRD......

Can someone in the now confirm that im correct in my thinking hear....

Tiny,

Calm down.

The current excise is 27.65 c per litre. This will increase to 50.88 c per lite, an increase of 23.23 c per litre. Add on VAT at 21% (21.5% from Dec 1) this will mean a tax increase on Avgas of about 28c per litre, incl VAT. this represents a 11.2% increase, if fuel currently costing €2.50 per litre

I think there was an EU issue with subsidy to AvGas, and this may be the effect of same, though I'm sure the Minister isnt saying no to the revenue

Hi Tiny,

See you at EGAB, we'll all be more regular.

think the EU provisions will applyo to UK also (saw some talk before on one of the forums), but will still work out much cheaper.
