Metropolitan taxi licence transfer prices

The following graph provides a monthly median of metropolitan taxi-cab licence transfer prices for the last 12 months.

Please note that the licence price shown in the chart below is the most recent monthly median transfer price recorded for a perpetual taxi licence. It is important to note that historical transfer prices do not represent current or future taxi licence values.

Information on value of licences for Centrelink applications

If you are a  perpetual taxi or hire car licence holder seeking clarification on the current asset value of a perpetual licence, the following information may apply.

The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) has sought clarification from the Commonwealth Department of Social Services to assist perpetual licence holders reporting asset values to Centrelink.

Given the limited market activity for licences, and that licence holders who meet eligibility will be entitled to transition assistance payments, the reported value in Centrelink applications should be equal to the expected value of assistance payment(s).

For example, if a licence holder owns two perpetual metropolitan licences, they should report the value of those assets as $100,000 for the first licence, and $50,000 for the second licence.  

For more information and details of transition assistance payment, visit Support package for taxi and hire car licence holders.

Explanatory note regarding calculation of metropolitan taxi licence values

Standard business rules are applied when calculating monthly prices for metropolitan taxi licences. The aim of these business rules is to identify genuine market based transfers of taxi licences and to base median price calculations on these transactions only. Therefore, where it appears a non-market based licence transfer has occurred, these transactions are excluded in the calculation of licence values.
