How do I claim a refund through NZIFDA?

There are a number of agencies who can process your off-road fuel duty refund on your behalf. As an independent not-for-profit, NZIFDA does not recomend one agency over another. We recommend you contact the various agencies and weigh up which is best for your needs. However if you have concerns or complaints about an agency, please contact us.

You can lodge a claim within three months of the close of a quarter (quarters close 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December).

  • If your claim isn't lodged within this time frame, but is lodged within two years of the close of a quarter, then the refund is reduced by 10 percent.
  • Any claim made later than two years from the close of any quarter won't be accepted unless the NZTA is satisfied that special circumstances exist.
