Temporary subsidy on the sale price of heating oil

After the extraordinary increase in the price of petroleum products due to the international situation, the government has decided to introduce a temporary reduction of the selling price of heating oil of 7.5 cts/l including VAT.

This specific and time-limited measure applies automatically, without any further action being required. It is part of the measures announced on 24 March 2022 in the context of the tripartite discussions with the social partners.

1. What steps do I need to take?

This measure is applied automatically. You do not need to take any action.

2. How long will this measure apply?
  • The price reduction for heating oil ('mazout') came into effect on 16 May 2022 and will remain in force until 31 December 2022.
3. What is the financial impact of this measure for me?

Since the state will pay 7.5 cts/l incl. VAT for certain oil products, the price increase will be absorbed. The exact financial impact depends on your consumption. For a consumption of 3,000 litres of heating oil, the saving will be 225 euros.

Due to the current market situation, oil products may still become more expensive for you despite this measure. In this case, however, the impact of such an increase will be absorbed by this measure.

4. When will I be able to benefit from this financial advantage?

The reduction of 7.5 cts/l incl. VAT is applied automatically and immediately.
