In France, the taxi is an area that works very well. The French who wish to invest in this market are many. Possession of a taxi license is a mandatory conditions to exercise this market. If you want to buy or sell a taxi license, the following information may be helpful.
market situation of taxi in France.
According to studies conducted in 2008, there were 16,623 Parisian taxi and about 51 232 Taxis throughout France. The Parisian taxi cabs and French in general must be black and have on their roofs TAXI an engraved plaque that glows red if it is not available in green or in the opposite case. They must also have a taximeter. To be a Parisian taxi or a cab French, in addition to the mandatory equipment, the law of 20 January 1995 also requires the possession of a taxi license also called parking permit issued by the municipal authority or the chief of police of the city . French taxis are classified into four broad categories namely: class craftsman, employee, self-employed and self-employed associate tenant cooperative. The majority of taxis circulating in France are taxis belonging to artisan status while the employee category contains only about 3% of French taxis. Gains taxis artisans depend on their race. They are random. If the licensee decides to rent his taxi license and his vehicle, he will receive a monthly rent includes all charges and fees associated. The supply of taxi license is strictly regulated in France. For municipalities with less than 100,000 inhabitants, the number of licenses to be issued is limited to 50, that is to say, a taxi license for 2000 people. For municipalities that have between 100 001 and 500 000 inhabitants, a taxi license is issued to serve 1,500 residents and municipalities that have more than 500,000 inhabitants, the municipality may issue a license to taxi per 1000 inhabitants.

How to get a taxi license?
To obtain a taxi license, a future professional taxi has three options: a free transfer taxi license, a taxi license purchase, or obtained directly from the administrative authority. On the free transfer, this is very advantageous if you have a family that already has. The reasons for the transfer of a license may be multiple causes that cite health and unable to drive. In case of death of the holder, the taxi license can sell his or her spouse or his heirs to conditions that they have an ability to drive. I must admit that the whole world could not access this free transfer and will resort to alternatives such as buying a taxi license or a request to the administrative authority. If you choose the latter alternative, it will register on a communal list which it is difficult to imagine in advance the probable duration of the wait, as this could be very long and that delivery will be in the course order of seniority of registration. This is why most people are encouraged to purchase a taxi license. Certainly it is not free, however, buy a taxi license is the only option if you want to exercise quickly. Licenses issued by the administrative authority are not for the impatient, and who knows, the wait time could be up to 15 years. You already have a car, and you're ready to invest in this market? Buy a taxi license.

The purchase of the taxi license in France
Taxis play an important role in the daily lives of French. In large cities, if you do not have a car, taxi is the only way to move faster and more comfortable. The majority of taxis cities importances of averages belong to a group of taxis. Managed by a central radio taxi service members offer door to door moving and any time of the customer. And even in rural areas, taxi services are very essential: to transport all kinds of goods and school transportation and travel. All these reasons explain the importance of this market and encourage people to purchase a taxi license. No it is not one of the reasons why you now buy a taxi license? Moreover, according to the statement today, the price of the taxi license shows a continuous upward trend. This means that the purchase of a taxi license is a secure investment and productive. Possession of a taxi license is then earn double its owner gain during operations and the gain on the sale if one day he decides to move on. Before you buy a taxi license, certain information must be verified. It will first of all that the buyer has a license with a seniority of at least two years. It will also refer on the results of three years of activities of the licensee. And if the license is to buy rural, that is to say that only offered transportation services by appointment, in addition to the balance sheet, it will also check the normality and regularity of its future activities.

The sale of taxi licenses in France
Like all other activities, inputs a taxi may vary from one professional to another. Moreover, in France, this market has imperfections that the State must still be addressed. In addition, this sector is very influential competition. Public transport and subways are the main competitors of the taxi as nowadays, the State intends to make investments in improving the services offered by means of transport for everyone. There are also shuttle buses that continue to improve. The decrease in demand is then the actual outcome of the competition. Costs, including fuel costs are another factor that determines the gain of a taxi operator. Indeed, it is clear that the fuel consumed is the same when the taxi ride empty or full. And given that this is a random activity, it could be that he could not recover its costs to empty its next earnings unless the customer agrees to cooperate by accepting a price more expensive, which is illusory. Repair costs and monthly charges are different yet add to this. In short, a good calculation, good management are essential to make the investment profitable and productive taxi. Those who were disappointed opt to sell their taxi license. Given the current cost of license purchase, this option could be their very advantageous. If you find that your taxi license gets you to bankruptcy, it is better to sell it. The resulting sum may be invested in other sectors that this time will be more productive.

The value of licenses Taxi
If it is a creation, the price of the taxi license French is 0 euro. But for a purchase, the value of taxi licenses can be worth very expensive. It is the sale or purchase, the taxi license, like all commercial properties, are governed by the law of supply and demand. So there is not a law that sets the value of taxi license. What we can say is that it can vary depending on the size of the city. For a small city such as taxi licenses may buy or sell at 30 000 to 50 000, while in the cities they may be worth double, triple, quadruple or even more, although profits they have generated are nearly the same. Even in recent years, it grew to 20% of the purchase price and sale of taxi licenses. Sellers of a side that had a deficit during operation can only take advantage of this situation to sell in order to cover all their losses later and have the background to launch a new activity. It is very possible especially when it is a free license acquired. And buyers on the other hand, given the continuing upward trend in the value of the purchase and sale of the license, uses his current purchase price to acquire one. In some French cities such as Nice or Orly, the price of taxi licenses even reach up to 400 000 euros. This could be explained by the increase in demand as the number of licenses granted by the administrative authority is very limited. So if you are looking to buy a taxi license in Paris, Marseille, Madrid, etc., make comparisons in order to get the best offer. Looking to sell your taxi license? You have the freedom to set its price but still know that buyers will buy before competition between the different providers.

Transfer of taxi licenses
To sell or buy a taxi license, there are administrative procedures to follow. For the sale of a taxi license acquired for consideration are acceptable and valid, it must first be sure that its owner has operated for at least five years. In the case where there is a taxi license issued free of charge by the local authority, a subsequent operation for a minimum period of 15 years is required for the sale of the license is valid. In Paris, the records provided during the sale of a taxi license depends on the status of the holder and the exercise area: Parisian taxi who works in the city or working in the suburbs and provinces. Regarding the steps to follow, we must admit that they are a few. After the consensus between the selling price is established by the two contracting parties, the seller chooses the Chambre Syndicale where he and the buyer will sign the agreement of sale. Besides all the necessary files, the purchaser must also provide documentary evidence of the agreement if the bank is a credit financing and pay a deposit. The Chambre Syndicale will then present all the files in the prefecture will give the decision to grant or refuse the sale and transfer of the license for about two weeks. The buyer will also continue for a period of 7 days in management from which he obtained a certificate allowing him to enroll in the chamber of trade. If the transfer is favorable, the buyer should make an appointment - you could go up to a month for a final signature will prefecture. To minimize waiting time, just after the delivery of records Chambre Syndicale, it would already make an appointment - you at the prefecture. After the signing, the seller may ultimately affect the amount corresponding to the sale of the license, the deposit paid will be refunded at the outset by the Chambre Syndicale. And in turn, the purchaser may request the plate finally after purchase. Although the presentation of the meter and the clock is not required, since the equipment will be used for anything, the seller often gives the plate. After that, the purchaser must go to the prefecture, after making an appointment - you are equipping his identity, his business card, gray card of his car, the letter from the insurance provider to his car, the parking plate and stamp, to obtain the parking card. And finally, thanks to its license, the new professional will pass his car roadworthiness of taxis. An appointment is necessary if it is a used car.


Taxi license prices
To become a taxi, there are people in the door even if the license fee is much higher. The law of supply and demand is met mainly in major cities on the market for taxi license, there is a great imbalance. This outbreak is due to the few sellers face numerous potential buyers. If the price of taxi licenses was around 130,000 in 2006, the license has now reached 200,000. After flirting with the 250,000 lately! Seeing the ever increasing price, drivers prefer to wait to sell their licenses to earn even more!

This benefit will not stop until the banks stop the course. Because these provide loans above 40,000 where repayment is spread widely over ten years. After simulation, we see that the monthly payments are quite high: borrow 250 000 over 7 years corresponds to a monthly payment of 3400 euros per month.

Perceiving this case, the taxi drivers can work more than ordinary workers as the law allows owners to drivers 77 hours a week, against 35 hours for conventional workers. There are approximately over 175,000 licenses sold throughout the country and bossent drivers for 80 hours per week to pay the price of their license and pay a pittance! Workers earn more than conventional taxi drivers as the gross hourly minimum wage is set at 8.44 while taxi drivers earn an average of 7.63.

The idea of ​​being attracted to the account of taxis especially the unemployed. "Among those who want to become taxis, nobody leaves the public, explains Alain Estival. These are people who suffer the economic crisis. "This will be the price to pay for people who have a very solid career earlier. We told the taxi drivers mutual: "In two or three years, we might see a lot in our office who have filed for bankruptcy. '

Here are the prices of taxi licenses for guidance in some departments:
Paris 130 000 to 220 000
Rouen 180 000
Evreux: 100000
Versailles: 170000
Nantes: 165000 250 000
Saint É yours: between 65 000 and 70 000
Hyeres 250 000
Saint-Tropez: 250000
Bordeaux: the price is between 120 000 and 130 000
Provence Salon: 150000

The price difference in these departments is explained by the fact that in urban customers often frequent taxis, unlike in rural areas. It is for this reason also that in some municipalities, the municipality delivers free licenses taxi.

Once upon a time down our way it used to be one cab per 1000 population in the city....... Now it's one cab per 400 population and possibly more in the pipeline. That is down to delimitation and a large influx of Asian drivers, mostly from lovely Southampton 12 miles down the road where its restricted on a few plates every so often basis.... :roll: :-|
