Let us help you prepare for the Red Diesel changes coming April 2022

Following the 2020 Budget, legislation to restrict the entitlement to use red diesel and rebated biofuels was announced. From April 1st 2022, a large majority of businesses will no longer be able to use rebated red diesel and will instead need to find appropriate, ideally more environmentally sustainable alternatives. Agreeably, this is a step in the right direction for a greener future but is also a major transition that needs to be navigated correctly
