                (a)    kilometres actually travelled by the vehicle (taken from odometer readings); or

               (b)    if the vehicle operates on fixed routes, route distances (instead of kilometres travelled); or

                (c)    hours that the vehicle or piece of equipment was operated; or

               (d)    another appropriate measure.

Note   Subclause (4) prescribes the commonly used methods of apportionment. However, because of the diverse range of activities that qualify for a grant, it is not possible to prescribe every possible measure a claimant can apply to apportion use of fuel. For example, where the fuel is used to power a generator for the purpose of generating electricity, an acceptable method of apportionment of qualifying and disqualifying uses would be by reference to kilowatt hours of electricity generated.

The claimant determines the measure of apportionment and demonstrates to the Commissioner that the measure chosen to apportion fuel use was appropriate to their circumstances.

Part 2          Basic calculation methods

2.1           General

         (1)   You may work out the quantity of fuel you propose to use or actually used for a qualifying use in a claim period by using a basic calculation method.

         (2)   The basic calculation methods are the constructive method and the deductive method.

2.2           Keeping of records

         (1)   In order to use the constructive method, you must have records of:

                (a)    the total quantity of fuel of each class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia in the claim period; and

               (b)    the quantity of fuel of each of those classes that you actually used for a qualifying use in the claim period; and

                (c)    the quantity of fuel of each of those classes that you propose to use for a qualifying use in the claim period; and

               (d)    each qualifying use in the claim period.

         (2)   In order to use the deductive method, you must have records of:

                (a)    the total quantity of fuel of each class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia in the claim period; and

               (b)    the quantity of fuel of each of those classes that you actually used for a disqualifying use in the claim period; and

                (c)    the quantity of fuel of each of those classes that you propose to use for a disqualifying use in the claim period; and

               (d)    each disqualifying use in the claim period.

Note   You are required by section 27A of the Product Grants and Benefits Administration Act 2000 to notify the Commissioner of any disqualifying use of fuel.

2.3           The constructive method

Constructive method — actual use

         (1)   The constructive method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used for a qualifying use in a claim period requires you to add up the quantity of fuel in that class that you actually used for a qualifying use in the claim period.

Note   See subclause 1.2 (2) for general rules for working out quantity of fuel.

Constructive method — proposed use

         (2)   The constructive method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you propose to use for a qualifying use in a claim period requires you to add up the quantity of fuel in that class that you propose to use for a qualifying use in the claim period.

Note   See subclause 1.2 (2) for general rules for working out quantity of fuel.

2.4           The deductive method

Deductive method — actual use

         (1)   The deductive method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used for a qualifying use in a claim period is:

where:

total quantity of fuel purchased or imported is the total quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia in the claim period.

quantity of disqualified fuel is the quantity of fuel of that class that was actually used for a disqualifying use in the claim period.

Note   See subclause 1.2 (2) for general rules for working out quantity of fuel.

Deductive method — proposed use

         (2)   The deductive method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you propose to use for a qualifying use in a claim period is:

where:

total quantity of fuel purchased or imported is the total quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia in the claim period.

proposed quantity of disqualified fuel is the quantity of fuel of that class that you propose to use for a disqualifying use in the claim period.

Part 3          Variations of the basic calculation methods

Division 1        General

3.1.1       General

         (1)   You may work out the quantity of fuel you actually used, or propose to use, for a qualifying use in a claim period using a variation of a basic calculation method.

         (2)   The variations of the basic calculation methods are the percentage use method and the small claimants method.

3.1.2       Keeping of records

         (1)   In order to use the percentage use method or the small claimants method, you must have records of:

                (a)    the quantity of fuel of each class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia:

                          (i)    if you are using the percentage use method — in the sample period; and

                         (ii)    in any other case — in the claim period; and

               (b)    the quantity of fuel of each of those classes that you used for a qualifying use or disqualifying use:

                          (i)    if you are using the percentage use method — in the sample period; and

                         (ii)    in any other case — in the claim period; and

                (c)    each qualifying use and disqualifying use:

                          (i)    if you are using the percentage use method — in the sample period; and

                         (ii)    in any other case — in the claim period.

Note   You are required by section 27A of the Product Grants and Benefits Administration Act 2000 to notify the Commissioner of any disqualifying use of fuel.

         (2)   If, in a claim period, 2 or more of your vehicles travel different routes or 2 or more pieces of your equipment are used in different ways, you must keep separate records for the purpose of working out the sample percentage.

Division 2        The percentage use method

3.2.1       How to use the percentage use method

         (1)   You may use the percentage use method to work out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used, or propose to use, for a qualifying use in a claim period by reference to your use of that fuel in a sample period.

         (2)   The sample period must be:

                (a)    a continuous period of at least 12 weeks in a claim period; and

               (b)    representative of your fuel usage patterns in the claim period.

         (3)   For subclause (1), the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used for a qualifying use in the sample period may be worked out using the constructive method or the deductive method.

3.2.2       The percentage use method

                The percentage use method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used, or propose to use, for a qualifying use in a claim period is:

where:

total quantity of fuel purchased or imported in a claim period is the total quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you purchased or imported into Australia in a claim period.

3.2.3       Alternative application of percentage use method

         (1)   If, in a claim period, 2 or more of your vehicles travel similar routes or 2 or more pieces of your equipment are used in a similar way:

                (a)    you may work out the sample percentage by reference to 1 of the vehicles or pieces of equipment; and

               (b)    the sample percentage may be applied to the other vehicles or pieces of equipment.

         (2)   You must be able to substantiate the reasonableness of applying the sample percentage to:

                (a)    a fleet of vehicles; or

               (b)    a number of pieces of equipment.

         (3)   You must work out the sample percentage separately for fuel of each class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2).

3.2.4       When you may rely on a sample percentage already worked out

                For the purpose of the calculation in clause 3.2.2, you may use the sample percentage you worked out in an earlier claim period in relation to fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) if:

                (a)    your pattern of usage of fuel of that class is substantially the same as in the earlier claim period; and

               (b)    the claim is made within 5 years after the end of the earlier claim period; and

                (c)    clause 3.2.5 does not require you to work out a new sample percentage.

3.2.5       When you need to work out a new sample percentage

         (1)   For the purpose of the calculation in clause 3.2.2, you must work out a new sample percentage if your pattern of usage in the current claim period of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) has substantially changed since the end of the sample period in:

                (a)    the current claim period; or

               (b)    an earlier claim period.

         (2)   For the purpose of the calculation in clause 3.2.2 in a particular claim period, if:

                (a)    subclause (3) or (4) does not apply; or

               (b)    you do not have a current sample percentage;

you must work out a new sample percentage for that claim period.

         (3)   For the purpose of the calculation in clause 3.2.2 in a particular claim period, if:

                (a)    the total of your claims for payment of an energy grant in:

+                        (i)    the first 12 months after you first calculated your sample percentage; or

                         (ii)    any of the periods of 12 months starting on the anniversary of first calculating your sample percentage;

                        is less than $10 000; and

               (b)    the claim period is within 60 months after you first calculated your sample percentage; and

                (c)    subclause (1) does not apply;

you may use the sample percentage for that claim period.

         (4)   For the purpose of the calculation in clause 3.2.2 in a particular claim period, if:

                (a)    the total of your claims for payment of an energy grant in            the first 12 months after you first calculated your sample percentage is at least $10 000; and

               (b)    the claim period is within 12 months after you first calculated your sample percentage; and

                (c)    subclause (1) does not apply;

you may use the sample percentage for that claim period.

Division 3        The small claimants method

3.3.1       How to use the small claimants method

                You may use the small claimants method to make a claim for payment of an energy grant for all or part of a claim period for actual use, or proposed use, of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) only if making the claim using that method would not result in the total amount of claims for payment of an energy grant being more than $5 000 in the current financial year.

3.3.2       The small claimants method

                The small claimants method of working out the quantity of fuel of a class mentioned in subclause 1.2 (2) that you actually used, or propose to use, for a qualifying use in a claim period requires you to make a reasonable estimate of the quantity of fuel actually used for a qualifying use in the claim period.
