'Tax on tax': New diesel changes are 'all smoke and mirrors' with costs rising up to £400k


Operating costs are expected to rise by around 15 percent, with companies facing additional fuel expenses of between £100,000 and £400,000 per year – according to research commissioned by Resource Management Association Scotland (RMAS).

CPS Fuels found the switch from red to white diesel alone will bring an additional expense of 46.81 pence per litre used, resulting in five times as much duty rate as before.

Mr Holland continued, saying: “We can’t afford to just down tools and do physical protests, we’ve got work to do. At the minute we’ve got to have a proper alternative in place.

“I think they’ll use this as a barometer. They’ll think ‘we’ve used this with the builders, then the farmers, then the hospitals’.
