  • Taxi cents per kilometre earnings rate

    The cents per kilometre earnings rate is the average amount of income earned by a taxi for the total kilometres travelled by the taxi in a year.

    The rate includes GST. It does not take expenses into account. It only measures gross taxi takings per kilometre of distance travelled.

    Taxi operators and drivers can use the cents per kilometre rate to:

    • compare their performance to the rest of the taxi industry
    • check that their tax records accurately reflect their income.

    Tax agents and accountants can use the cents per kilometre rate to assist them in preparing tax returns and business activity statements for their clients.

    We use the cents per kilometre rate in cases where taxi operators or drivers do not have proper records.

    The rate has been developed in consultation with taxi industry participants.
