Filing an application for diesel tax refund in France

The application for the French diesel tax refund (TICPE) must be made for each quarter/half year retrospectively on the basis of actual fuel consumption (and not on the basis of an average consumption estimate).

It is possible to submit several applications from different semesters at the same time.

If the operator carries out a dual activity (goods transport and passenger transport), he must submit 2 applications for refund, one for each.

The number of liters must be indicated without decimal places.

Operators applying for tax refunds on diesel fuel must be able to prove, at any time and as soon as the declaration has been lodged with the customs office, the elements declared in the application.

Invoices and other supporting documents must be presented and kept for each vehicle and must show that the volume of diesel fuel indicated on the application for refund in respect of each vehicle corresponds to the use made of it during the half-year.

Invoices for the purchase of diesel fuel must show the location of the fuel purchase, the nature of the fuel, the volume purchased and the vehicle’s identification.
