2017 Victorian Taxi Industry Day

Aug 07 2017

The VTA is pleased to be hosting a one-day taxi industry event again in 2017.

The event is to brief industry participants on the ongoing reforms to the industry and changes yet to come, as well as to provide opportunities to network and reconnect with fellow industry participants.

We are developing a diverse Business Program with speakers dealing with all the pivotal matters facing the taxi industry. We trust attendees will find the program informative and stimulating.


  • Taxi Services Commission on implementation of Government reforms
  • Logie-Smith Lanyon lawyers on compliance and enforcement powers under the new legislation
  • Australian Tax Office on tax implications of transition assistance and Fairness Fund payments, and implementation of the trip levy
  • State Revenue Office on implementation of the trip levy
  • Melbourne Airport on changes to taxi access and accommodation of ridesharing services

The business program will be followed by a dinner held on site with buffet meal and entertainment provided.

Further program details will be provided as confirmed.
