Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Amendment Bill 2022 Passes in the Upper House

Last night the Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Amendment Bill 2022 (the proposed Taxi Legislation) was debated in the Legislative Council (Upper House).

The debate went for almost three hours with contributions from Members of Legislative Council of various Political Parties and the Bill was voted on and passed the Legislative Council (Upper House) just after midnight.


What's Next?

- Governor to sign off on the Bill

- Preparation of New Regulations by Transport for NSW

- Receiving a Tax Ruling from the Australian Tax Office (ATO) in relation to Capital Gains Tax

- Assistance Payments to be made to Taxi Licence Owners, which we understand is likely to be early next year (2023)

We Thank all the following Members of Legislative Council (MLC) who contributed to the debate in the Legislative Council (Upper House) -

Sam Farraway MLC, John Graham MLC, Mark Banasiak MLC, Rod Roberts MLC, Abigail Boyd MLC, Robert Borsak MLC, Mark Buttigieg MLC and Daniel Mookhey MLC.
