States of Guernsey has reviewed representations from the taxi industry and has agreed to provide financial support for taxi until the end of September.
The trade continues to be heavily impacted by the lack of visitors to the island as a result of ongoing border controls.
Through the payroll co-funding scheme, those who demonstrate their business is being impacted can apply for 80% or 100% of the minimum wage for employees (or for themselves if they are self-employed), which is a continuation of the rules that applied up until June.
Policy & Resources vice-president Lyndon Trott said: “We know there are some taxi and private car drivers who are very reliant on trade from both inbound and outbound holidaymakers as well as business travellers.
“We’re already supporting other sectors that depend on visitors, including accommodation providers, restaurants, retail and others, and it’s appropriate that taxi drivers receive the same support.”
