A CALL TO ARMS TO ALL TASMANIAN PERPETUAL TAXI OWNERS
HAVE A VOICE FOR AN OPTIONAL TAXI LICENCE BUY BACK
Tasmanian perpetual taxi licence holders crisis
Savings have been seriously affected because of changes made to the Tasmanian government’s system for licensing owner/operator taxis.
Tasmanian Taxi Industry in 2021 Financial Crisis
There is no outcome to perpetual taxi licence owners in the midst of this plight for self funded retirees who have virtually lost their income from taxi leases. Taxi owners seek the Tasmanian State and Federal Government to provide financial assistance immediately to the Tasmanian Taxi Industry in light of Federal Government’s second stimulus package that offered $66 billion worth of measures for coronavirus-hit economy to aid Australians in financial stress. It is no exaggeration to state that taxi plate licence holders/owners with these crippling loses have had their life savings stolen by the Tasmanian State Government.
There are 428 perpetual taxi licences in Tasmania held by 194 owners. Many self funded retirees who have invested 20+ years of blood, sweat and tears of hard work has gone down the drain through no fault of their own.
Not a Level Playing Field for Tasmanian Taxi Industry
Many of our Tasmanian taxi licensees have been under tremendous pressure due to this onslaught of an unequal level playing field competition from app-dispatched services. These app dispatched services are not carrying the same costs nor are being forced to pay the same fees. The State Government needs to correct its moral compass.
Taxi Industry Market Manipulation.
The Tasmanian Taxi Industry has been placed in a commercial disadvantage, specifically through the inequity in CTP insurance, comprehensive insurance and very low taxi operator lease licensing fees.
Optional BuyBack Sought in Tasmanian Taxi Industry
Assistance is sought for Perpetual Plate Owners in Tasmania who as mum and dad investors rely on this income for their retirement. This assistance package could be in a form of a optional buyback but to date the State Government, even with Federal Government funding is unwilling to help plate owners during this catastrophe.
The “asset” loss is no fault of mum and dad investors and should not be punished by the Tasmanian Government.
It is now time to have one voice as a one unified group to ensure our investments are not stolen from us by the Tasmanian State Government.
Fair and equitable compensation in the form of Optional Taxi Licence BuyBack for Tasmanian perpetual taxi plate owners for losses incurred due to dropping of owner operator licence plate prices .
If you want to try and save the taxi plates, be kept informed, then register on this website and communication will be issued when the appropriate time comes.
We are not beaten AND are working behind the scenes.
Tasmania Taxi Plate Owners Membership is here to stay
What Taxi Owners Need
The Tasmanian State Government needs to provide its Hard Working Australians who have invested in the Tasmanian taxi industry a way to save their retirement and superannuation savings through an optional taxi licence buy back.
Any call for Tasmanian Government to implement taxi licence buy-back scheme must be in the form of fair and equitable compensation for taxi plate owners.
We must stop the Tasmanian Government of making the same mistake made in other states.
