Claiming FTC for forestry

Claiming FTC for forestry

If your business is involved in commercial forestry operations, you can claim the maximum credit for the fuel you use for any of the following activities:

  • planting or tending trees in a forest or plantation that is intended for felling
  • felling or thinning trees in a forest or plantation
  • transporting, milling or processing trees in the forest or plantation in which they were felled – if the transport is not on a public road
  • transporting timber to a sawmill or chip mill that is outside the forest or plantation but inside Australia – if the transport is not on a public road
  • milling timber at a sawmill or chip mill outside the forest or plantation
  • constructing and maintaining roads in a forest or plantation, if the roads are integral to eligible forestry activities – this does not include quarrying activities or transporting any materials you use for road building.
