A driver of Volkswagen Taxi Company told the first financial reporter that on February 2, the driver had received a unified message from the company, and the subsidy had been issued. Specifically, a single bus can pay 80 yuan less per day, and a double bus can pay 120 yuan less per day.. The first round of subsidies is from January 24 to January 31; the second round is from February 1 to February 29.

According to the information that the first financial reporter learned from the Shinan branch of Shanghai Volkswagen Taxi Company, the first round of corresponding subsidies has been distributed to drivers since February 3. Some money is in place. Call the driver. A staff member on duty of a public rental company told the first financial reporter by telephone.

According to the information previously obtained by the first financial reporter from the Shanghai Taxi Association, the current subsidy lasts until February 29 for the time being, and the follow-up subsidy scheme will be determined according to the development of the epidemic. In addition to the reduction of money, companies can adjust according to the specific operating income of drivers.

A driver told the first financial reporter: in this period of time, if you are lucky, you can have a maximum turnover of 400-500 yuan a day. If you rely on roadside recruitment, you can only have a maximum turnover of 200-300 yuan a day. But the driver is optimistic. As long as you can earn money, its good to earn less. He told first financial reporter.

Before that, a taxi driver told the first financial reporter that he had waited seven hours at the airport to get the guests. In recent two weeks, the first financial reporter observed in Changning, Putuo and other places in Shanghai that the number of taxis on the road has decreased significantly, and most of the taxis running are also carried by empty cars.

Many drivers from other places havent come back. Some companies require drivers from other places to return to Shanghai to be isolated for two weeks by themselves. Some companies dont have this arrangement, and only those with symptoms will be isolated. A driver told the first financial reporter. He also said that during the current outbreak, every day when I report to the company, I will get a mask and disinfect the car every day.

Subsidy funds provided by taxi enterprises

According to the data provided by the taxi industry of Shanghai to the first financial reporter, there are more than 70000 drivers with local operating licenses in Shanghai at present. The first financial reporter also learned that, in view of the losses suffered by these drivers in the epidemic, on February 1, under the coordination of the Shanghai Taxi Industry Association, the main principals of the four major taxi companies in Shanghai held a meeting to discuss specific subsidy plans.

According to the first financial reporter, the first batch of subsidies for drivers are mainly provided by enterprises. Whether the follow-up government has corresponding subsidies or tax relief policies for taxi enterprises remains to be released.

At the same time, he told the first financial reporter that during the Spring Festival, the relevant departments also gave up rest and were working overtime. During the epidemic, in addition to the subsidies for drivers money, there are many other comprehensive measures, but the specific measures depend on the arrangement of the headquarters of Volkswagen Taxi company.

The first financial reporter tried to contact a deputy general manager of VWs rental headquarters, but as of the time of publishing, the phone could not be connected.

Taxi industry associations in other cities have also called for companies to introduce a unified subsidy policy. According to a proposal on coping with the epidemic situation of new coronavirus pneumonia issued by Guangzhou Taxi Association to taxi enterprises and drivers in Guangzhou, the subsidy scheme is proposed to be composed of three parts: profit giving by enterprises, government subsidy and drivers active social responsibility. On the one hand, the association will organize enterprises to agree on a unified subsidy standard for the industry, which will be subsidized to drivers by enterprises. On the other hand, the association will coordinate relevant government departments to issue relevant load reduction policies for the industry during the epidemic prevention and control period to reduce the burden of drivers and enterprises.

In addition, the industry association also called on drivers to take the initiative to take social responsibility and provide high-quality and safe travel services for the public according to the unified deployment and arrangement of the government. Through the way that drivers, enterprises and the government share risks and overcome difficulties together, a strong joint force among drivers, enterprises and government departments is formed to prevent and control the epidemic and stabilize the industry, so as to win the epidemic Sniper War together.

The turnover of the whole industry may fall by more than 70%

The first financial reporter checked the subsidies of the taxi industry during the SARS period in 2003, and found that in view of the operating difficulties of the taxi industry in Shanghai, the financial department granted subsidies through the special fund for SARS prevention and control, which was specially used to adjust the operating income of drivers. In May 2003, the total subsidy of taxi enterprises in Shanghai exceeded 50 million yuan.

Before the industry subsidy scheme was introduced, the enterprises in the industry took various measures to create a good business environment for drivers and enhance the cohesion of enterprises. For example, Johnson & Johnson set up the anti non special fund to reward, condole and rescue the front-line workers; Jinjiang company subsidized the drivers in advance with an average of 600 yuan per person; Dazhong company provided the drivers with free lunch Meal and night; the bus company advanced a subsidy of 200 yuan per person.

The taxi industry is only one of the industries affected by the epidemic. If we refer to the practice of SARS period, it depends on how the government makes overall planning. The amount of subsidy or rent reduction offered by taxi enterprises themselves is not included, a senior state-owned enterprise in the industry told the first financial reporter

He also predicted that the government would provide some financial support measures such as tax relief for taxi enterprises. However, the online car Hailing platform may need to be arranged independently by the enterprise. Online car Hailing is a market-oriented operation, and taxis are priced by the government. These people told the first financial reporter.

According to the information learned by the first financial reporter from reliable insiders, since January 20 this year, the overall turnover of the whole industry is likely to decline by more than 70% than expected. The impact on different platforms is different, and the impact on the taxi industry is likely to be greater.

The Shanghai government has taken action to reduce the burden of enterprises. On February 3, the Shanghai Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau issued the latest four policies to help enterprises reduce the burden, which will return 50% of the total amount of unemployment insurance premiums actually paid by the employer and its employees in the previous year to eligible employers. After the implementation of the policy, it is expected that about 140000 employers will benefit from it and reduce the burden by about 2.6 billion yuan in 2020. Secondly, the payment of social security for Shanghai employees is delayed for three months, and it is expected to reduce the payment burden of social security for Shanghai enterprises by 10.1 billion yuan in the current year. Third, the payment period of social insurance will be extended, and the relevant supplementary payment procedures can be completed within 3 months after the epidemic is lifted. Finally, implement the subsidy policy of training fee. Those who participate in all kinds of online vocational training will enjoy 95% subsidy according to the actual training cost. Platform enterprises, e-commerce enterprises and new business enterprises can refer to the implementation. Source: First Financial Editor: Guo Chenqi, nbj9931
