Fuel Tax

Key Information
Description: 
In Finland fuels are taxed according to their use. Excise duty on liquid fuels is collected on all types of fuels, including biofuels. The latest amendment to the Act of Excise Duty on Liquid Fuels sets out a taxation system, according to which each component of a liquid fuel is taxed separately, based on its energy content and carbon dioxide emission, meaning reduced taxation for biofuels.
Goal/Aim: 
Stimulate low carbon fuels in transport
