Primary producers can apply for a concession on their vehicle registration and the eligibility requirements for the concession have changed.

Particularly relevant to anyone that uses their Heavy Vehicles for primary production but also receives income from freight and cartage.  

Based on the new criteria you can no longer claim primary producer concession on a heavy vehicle that is not used solely for primary production. 

Primary producer vehicle requirements

To get a concession, a primary producer vehicle means a Light Vehicle that is owned by a primary producer which is not used or let for hire, and is used solely or principally:

  • to cart primary products or another primary producer has produced, or
  • to cart leaves or another primary producer has gathered and from which eucalyptus or other oil is to be distilled, or
  • to cart goods of any kind for use in their primary production business of the owner or of another primary producer, or
  • to cart goods of any kind for use in the primary producer’s household, or that of a member of the rural society who is a primary producer or of another primary producer, or
  • purposes connected with the clearing of land or another primary producer proposes to use for primary production.
