Taxi licence transfer prices

The information is updated by the third business day of each month.

Levy payable on transfer of a taxi licence

A levy of 2.5% of the current market value of an ordinary taxi licence is payable to the Point to Point Transport Commissioner (the Commissioner) by the transferee on the transfer of an ordinary taxi licence (Schedule 2, clause 7 of the Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016) except in the case of a deceased estate where the new licence holder is entitled to the taxi licence under the will or on the intestacy of the current licensee. For the purpose of calculating the transfer tax in the Sydney Metropolitan Transport District, the current market value is calculated as the previous month's average taxi transfer price.
