ATO Publishes FTC Manager Product Ruling

FTC Manager the first in Australia to receive ATO Product Ruling to protect fleet managers from overclaiming fuel tax credits.

FTC Manager is a unique solution for businesses claiming fuel tax credits. Unlike other GPS-based FTC calculation systems, it operates exclusively using second-by-second high-definition GPS location data produced by hardware which is hardwired into customer vehicles. This ensures maximum accuracy when apportioning between fuel usage off public roads or in auxiliary equipment (higher FTC rate), and fuel usage in heavy vehicles for travelling on public roads (lower FTC rate).

Product Ruling 2021/2 confirms that the FTC apportionment methodologies used by FTC Manager are “fair and reasonable” for the purposes of the FTC law. This is supported by a second ATO ruling, Class Ruling 2021/30, which confirms that the reports from FTC Manager are able to be used as records for making FTC claims.
