Simplify collection of duty on red diesel for boats

Comment 1st July 2010

Either abolish the extra propulsion duty or introduce a flat rate for red diesel supplied to pleasure boats (eg on canals) . The current system of boaters declaring any proportion they wish and each supplier applying the regultions as they see fit is complicated, confusing and inconsistent. Small business do not have the time to negotiate the rate for each sale of fuel, and more to the point should not have to.

Why does this matter?

The cost and burden of administering the regulation is disproportionate to the revenue collected for both the business and HMRC.
