Taxi Council of Queensland (TCQ) is reminding members that applications are now open for the Taxi and Limousine Business Advisory Services Grants Program (BAS Grant).
Taxi and limousine licence holders and operators can apply for grants of up to $5,000 to obtain professional advice on transitioning to the new regulatory framework for personalised transport.
“Successful applicants can use the money to get professional help on business, operational and strategic planning, financial advice, and legal assistance,” said TCQ chief executive officer Blair Davies.
“To be eligible, license holders or operators must meet certain criteria including either holding a taxi or limousine licence or be a taxi or limousine operator, be a registered business, and be a Queensland resident or Queensland business.”
In addition to meeting the eligibility criteria, applicants will also be considered by the extent to which they’ve been impacted by increased competition due to booked-hire services and the degree of personal financial investment in their licence or operation.
Applications close on July 25, 2017.
