Income tax return

If you operate a taxi business, you must report all your business income using the accrual method of accounting.

Taxi driver's permit or taxi owner's permit

Mandatory billing

As of December 1, 2020, we will be phasing in mandatory billing measures for the remunerated passenger transportation sector in order to restore healthy competition and ensure tax fairness.

As an operator of a taxi business, you have until June 2021 to begin giving customers a paper or electronic bill at the end of each trip.
