We Thank the NSW Government for their efforts and support in achieving this result.

Please note, the Point to Point Transport Commission's contact centre will not be able to explain the impact of this advice for individual licence owners.

We encourage Taxi Licence Owners to seek independent tax advice based on their individual circumstances.
