Panteia has calculated that the NEA index for taxi transport in 2020 will be 6,7%. The main reason is the abolition of the BPM refund scheme as of January 1, 2020. In addition, wages will increase by 2% as of January 1, 2020 and insurance costs have increased sharply. The cost-increasing effects of the Balanced Labor Market Act (the WAB) are also included in the index.
Cost developments may turn out differently for each taxi company. Social Fund Taxi fulfills the role of supervisor within the taxi industry for the CAO Taxi Transport and is the knowledge center in the field of training, working conditions, safety and the CAO Taxi Transport. Social Fund Taxi was founded and is managed by KNV Taxi, FNV and CNV professionals. The term taxi transport in this context encompasses all transport by taxis, including group transport.
Although the costs for 2020 will increase substantially by 7,5%, due to a correction of 0,8% on the cost development estimated in 2019 last year, the NEA index comes to 6,7%. The main reason for the correction is the fact that sector premiums in 2019 were lower than anticipated.
The cost developments are based on established facts, such as the Collective Labor Agreement for Taxi Transport, and forecasts from the Central Planning Board. Cost increases due to an increase in congestion have not been taken into account in the calculation of the cost development. Future cost developments that are still uncertain are also not included in the estimates.
Commissioned by Social Fund Taxi panteia made an overview of the latest average cost developments for taxi transport. The cost developments per taxi company can therefore turn out differently. You can get the complete report online to look at.
