Reimbursement of TICPE tax (formerly called TIPP)
DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION TAX ON ENERGY PRODUCTS (TICPE- EX-TIPP)
Every company established in the European Union which uses transport vehicles of 7.5 tons and over in the goods carriage sector can request a partial refund of the domestic consumption tax on petroleum products (TICPE, formerly TIPP), on the basis of their consumption.
KNOWING THE TICPE AND GETTING A REFUND
The domestic consumption tax on energy products is a tax on petroleum and energy products. In 2011 it replaced TIPP (domestic consumption tax on petroleum products). TICPE includes notably fuels and heating fuels.
This duty levied by the State is calculated on the basis of volumes sold (and not on the selling price). The amount of duty is determined by unit produced and is fixed each year by the Finance Bill, varying from year to year.
Articles 265(f) and 265(g) of the Customs Code enable eligible companies – mainly those which use road vehicles for goods transport – to benefit under certain conditions from a partial refund of this tax.
STEPS TO APPLY FOR A TICPE REFUND:
The company must be established within the European Union
The vehicle must be used exclusively for goods transport
The vehicle must be at least 7.5 tons
The vehicle must be registered in a member country of the community
