Fines for room rental

MADRID - The Ministry of Development of Spain has announced in a press conference that there is a new law took effect immediately passed prohibiting the subletting rooms.

By subletting rooms will be placed a fine between 600 and 3,000 euros. How the government intends to monitor the subleases not yet known. But when multiple surnames are registered at one address will lead to possible action.

Tourist tax accepted

Tourist tax accepted

IBIZA - The controversial tourist tax for visitors to Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera takes concrete forms. The leftist government of the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands Friday in Palma de Mallorca approved a similar bill.

The so-called eco-tax, estimated annually would yield around 80 million euro, will be already charged in May or June and up to two euros per tourist per night amounts. The final decision by the regional parliament is considered by the absolute majority of the leftist coalition as a formality. Every holidaymaker from 16 years who stay in a tourist residence, it will have to pay depending on the time of year and the category of between 0.25 and 2 euros per night. From the eleventh night will halve the contribution.

Especially hotel owners and entrepreneurs, but also fierce criticism municipalities had filed against the plan and a total of 42 official objections. The hoteliers indicated that once the Act is passed, they plan to start his complaints against the local tax. With the income will encourage the Government of the Socialist Francina Armengol environmental protection and sustainable tourism.

Opponents have huge doubts about this spending and think that it is only an additional source of income for the government of the Balearic Islands. Hoteliers also fear competition from hotels on mainland Spain where the new tax is not applicable.
