Diesel Rebate Scheme

Claim – Licence issued in the Republic of Ireland (ROI)

How do I claim a diesel rebate?

Road transport operators who have registered for the scheme will be able to submit claims for repayment online through Revenue Online Service (ROS).

Operators with a large fleet of vehicles may submit claims by uploading an offline file. For more information see Schema and Notes.

You will need to enter the following details for repayment claims:

  • the transport operator's licence number active within the claim period
  • and
  • the transport manager's certificate of professional competence number (not a driver CPC) active within the claim period.


You can add new licences during this stage.

For each vehicle in your claim, you will need the:

  • vehicle registration number
  • odometer readings at the beginning and end of the repayment period
  • quantity of diesel purchased, for that individual vehicle, using the fuel card
  • quantity of diesel purchased, for that individual vehicle, using bulk supply. 

For each fuel card, you will need the:

  • fuel card number
  • total volume of auto diesel purchased in Ireland
  • total volume of auto diesel on which a claim is being made. 

For bulk purchases, ensure you have the:

  • supplier’s name, address and auto-fuel trader’s licence number
  • invoice number
  • date of delivery
  • and
  • volume of each purchase.

You may claim diesel used in a vehicle from the date your vehicle is registered to your operator licence. The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will register your vehicle to your licence. If the Department have recently added your vehicle to your operator licence it could take three to four weeks to show on ROS.
