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. With the industry now decimated by the State Government decision to close all borders, the Tasmanian taxi industry is unable to cope as drivers and owners rely on the public to use these essential services. The public have been instructed by the Tasmanian State Government to self isolate which leaves taxi plate owners who are in retirement left with virtually no income. This is unacceptable considering it is viewed as an essential service.
Taxi Industry in Financial Crisis in Tasmania
There is no outcome to perpetual taxi licence owners in the midst of this plight who have lost all their income from taxi leases. 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 Liberal State Government.
There are 428 perpetual taxi licences in Tasmania held by 194 owners.
Transitional Assistance Package 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 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 We Want
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.
