Remunerated Passenger Transportation
We are phasing in mandatory billing measures to ensure healthy competition and foster tax fairness in the remunerated passenger transportation sector. The rollout will be complete by May 31, 2021.
All taxi business operators must comply with the new measures as of June 1, 2021.
For more information, see Mandatory Billing in the Remunerated Passenger Transportation Sector.
“Remunerated passenger transportation” means a service provided by a business carried on in Québec that consists of transporting passengers:
- by taxi, at rates set by the Act respecting transportation services by taxi;
- by motor vehicle, for an agreed price, within and in the vicinity of the territory of a municipality if the transportation is organized or coordinated through a digital platform or an electronic system.
In fall 2020, we carried out a pilot project to ensure that our technological solution, procedures and methods worked well and that the new measures suited the operations of remunerated passenger transportation businesses.
Twenty-seven taxi business operators and seven employees participated in the project. Almost 2,700 bills were produced and sent, and some 20 inspections were carried out either in person or by phone. In all, nearly 87% of participants were satisfied with their experience and would take part in similar future pilot projects.
We would like to thank everyone who made this pilot project a success.
We would also like to thank the following sales recording system (SRS) developers who participated in the project:
- Fraxion Communications inc.
- Paxi Technologies inc.
- Synerdev inc. (HypraSoft)
