Basic Rules to claiming

  • You can only claim what you actually export

    • Even if it is more than the actual flight

      • Claim what is in the tanks on the way out of the UK

  • Only claim lower of tank capacity or evidential proof

    • Tanks hold 72 USG, invoices show 15 USG – claim 15

    • Flight takes 15 USG, tanks hold 72, invoices show 72 - claim 72

    • Must be UK duty paid

  • Only claim fuel loaded since last arrival in the UK

    • Invoices before last UK arrival date become invalid for claiming

    • Keep your fuel invoices!

  • Like all tax processing, abuse could cost you

  • Watch your Weight & Balance

    • Consider take-off runs & fuel burn etc if fully loaded

  • Fuel must be UK duty paid

    • Cannot claim for fuel loaded in foreign port

  • Cannot claim duty twice on the same fuel

    • Loaded aircraft, exported it, some left upon return

    • Cannot claim this remainder next time round

    • Each foreign trip invalidates unused invoices to that date/time of last UK arrival

    • Claimed fuel must be UK duty paid

  • Can only claim for fuel actually exported

    • Intermediate UK legs cannot count

    • E.g. fuel used on a leg EGLG - Lydd

Can a claim be rejected
Can a claim be rejected?

  • If the claim has not been converted to litres

  • The form does not bear an original signature

  • The form has been received outside the time limits (3 years)

  • The claim is incomplete

    • Airport codes used instead of airport names – critical!

    • Wrong fuel duty rate

    • Missing check boxes

  • Remember that you cannot claim drawback of excise duty:

    • in excess of what was originally paid

    • before the excise duty has been paid

    • if you are claiming relief from excise duty under any other scheme

    • for any part of a journey within the UK prior to departure to a destination outside of the UK, or

    • in the case of aircraft, on any flight where the aircraft does not land abroad

  • A rejected claim is not paid – you don’t get to fix the error

The ho60 form
The HO60 form

  • Take one

  • Take the notes too


  • Keep Invoices (pool them if you share)

  • Keep copies of last claim so you can complete date of last arrival data

  • Keep fuel loading consistent

    • Fill to tabs so you always know what you’ve paid duty on

    • Fill immediately after arrival of a foreign trip to get invoice

  • Double check form before submitting

    • Mistakes cannot be rectified

  • Calculate your capacities in Litres & keep note

    • Tank capacity

    • Fuel burn per hour

  • Why fly UK anymore?
