Fuel Tax Calculation

Recent changes from the ATO requires that fuel rebates be calculated based on the date fuel was delivered to you, not on the date paid for. 

To cater for this change, in version 6.3.47 of Agrimaster, a new field called Delivery Date has been added to all transactions relating to fuel entries. This field enables you to record discrepancies between the date of the payment for fuel invoices and the date fuel is delivered so the discrepancies can be addressed. 

In some cases, one date may be before a fuel tax rebate change and the other afterward.
