For all road haulage companies based in the EU, it is possible to request a refund of the diesel tax. The prerequisite for the reimbursement is that the vehicles have a total total weight of at least 7.5 tons, that the refueling has been paid by fuel card, credit card or debit card (no cash) and that the refueling on the invoice is attributable to a vehicle.
Even passenger transport companies with buses that have at least 9 seats (excluding drivers) can recover the excise duty on diesel.
