There was a change in the law from 30th June which affects producers/users of vegetable oil as a road fuel. I have today received a letter from HM Revenue & Customs about the changes in the law.

Amongst other things, the letter says "Your recent Biofuels and other fuel substitutes return indicates that you may be producing less than 2500 litres per annum. We therefore propose to remove you from our current list of registered producers of biofuels and other fuel substitutes."

I will tick the box, sign it and post it back to them, freeing me of the burden of sending them a tax payment each month. As the letter points out, I do still have to keep records of the vegetable oil I am using.
