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 petroleum products (TIPP) is a tax on petroleum products and energy products provided in Community law by Directive 2003/96/EC and in French law by Article 265 of the Customs Code.

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.

Do you have road vehicles of at least 7.5 tonnes intended for the transport of goods? ASD Group can help you obtain a partial refund of this tax on the consumption of fuel purchased in France. 

The conditions of eligibility are:

Steps for filing a request for refund of the TIPP

The companies may send their request

  • The company must be a private or public company subject to commercial law
  • The company must be established in European Union territory
  • The vehicle must be used exclusively for the road transport of goods
  • The company must own or lease the vehicle with a leasing or rental contract of over 2 years
