Information for industry

From 1 July 2018, a $1 levy applies to every taxi and hire car trip, including ride share, originating in Victoria. 

Taxi and hire car businesses, including ride share, must register with us online and pay the levy each quarter.

How do I know if I have to register for the levy?

Our quick and easy online tool will help you.

Just go to sro.vic.gov.au/triplevyregistration using your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

When do I have to register for the levy?

You must register with us by the end of the quarter in which you completed your first commercial passenger vehicle service transaction after the levy started on 1 July 2018. 

For example, if you were providing commercial passenger vehicle services on 1 July 2018, you need to register with us by 30 September 2018. 

The registration process takes about five minutes. Register at sro.vic.gov.au/triplevyregistration.

If you are required to register and don’t, it is an offence.

What service category do I select?

Only select the category, or categories, of services that you provide:

  1. Rank and hail work — this is where you pick up customers from ranks or when hailed on the street, also known as unbooked work.
  2. A booking service — this is where you take booking requests and arrange for a driver to pick up a passenger.
  3. A service lodging returns and paying the levy on behalf of others for their rank and hail work — this is where you have a formal affiliation agreement to pay the levy for a trip provider.

Do not select a category if you do not provide that type of service.

I have registered, now what do I need to do?

You need to record the number of trips you make in each quarter to which the $1 levy applies.

Remember, the $1 levy applies to every taxi and hire car trip, including ride share, originating in Victoria from 1 July 2018.

When do I lodge and pay?

You must lodge a return, detailing the number of trips attracting the levy for that quarter, and pay the levy within 30 days of the end of each quarter. 

This means returns and levy payments are due within 30 days of each of the following dates:

  • 30 September,
  • 31 December,
  • 31 March,
  • 30 June.

If your business offers services in more than one category, you must complete a separate quarterly return for each category.

You then must lodge a return for each category you provide and pay the levy each quarter.

How do I lodge a return and pay the levy?

You lodge a return and pay the levy via our online portal at sro.vic.gov.au/triplevyreturn.

Log in to the online portal with the customer number we gave you when you registered, and the password you created at registration.

Once in the portal, select ‘lodge return’, enter the required information and select ‘submit’.

You will then be directed to a payment page to pay the total levy amount due by credit card or direct debit. Once you have paid, confirmation is provided onscreen and in an email.

What happens if I don’t pay the levy?

If you don’t lodge a quarterly return and pay the levy, we may issue a default assessment, which could attract interest and penalties. Failure to meet your levy obligations may also result in you losing your driver accreditation.
