How to file an excise duty return on fuels as a CSV file in MyTax
File the excise duty return on liquid fuels in MyTax. In MyTax, you can fill in the details required for the excise duty return on liquid fuels one by one. If you are a regular taxpayer, you can upload the data on your regular activities as one CSV file. You can make the CSV file in Excel, for example. Some IT systems used by companies may also be able to generate the file automatically.
In the excise taxation of fuels, regular taxpayers include the following:
- authorised warehouse keeper
- registered consignee
- tax representative
- small producer of biofuel oil.
If you are a regular taxpayer but you also have occasional activities, you must fill in the details on your occasional activities separately in MyTax. These details cannot be uploaded as a CSV file.
Structure of CSV file
Please read these instructions carefully before uploading the CSV file to ensure that the contents of the file are correctly formatted and meet the technical requirements. The data included in the file must be in the correct columns and in a specific order.
If you want to upload the data as a CSV file, the file must be structured exactly as follows:
|Role||Taxable or tax-exempt product||Grounds for tax exemption||Volume (in l or kg with no more than 2 decimal places)|
Information content of the return
|Role code||Product code||Code of grounds for tax exemption||The volume of the products must be entered with no more than two decimal places.|
MyTax considers the first row of the CSV file to be the title row and ignores it.
Separate columns in the CSV file with a semicolon (;).
If you use Excel or other spreadsheet software to generate the file, select .csv as the file name extension when you save the file to ensure that the file is in the correct format.
Enter the figures without a separator, such as a space, between thousands.
Column 1, Role
The code of the return filer’s role. See the codes in the code list at the end of these instructions.
Column 2, Taxable or tax-exempt product
Code of the taxable or tax-exempt product. See the codes in the code list at the end of these instructions.
Column 3, Grounds for tax exemption
Code of the grounds for tax exemption. See the codes in the code list at the end of these instructions.
If the product is taxable, leave this column empty.
Column 4, Volume
In this column, enter the volume of each taxable product in litres or kilograms as indicated by the tax rate table. Use no more than 2 decimal places.
An example CSV file (authorised warehouse keeper’s return with nine product rows):
Note that the first row of the CSV file is always the title row. MyTax starts reading the data from row 2.
