The Tourist Membership Fee
In accordance with the recent Law on the Tourism Membership Fee, passed on January 1st 2020, the following are the annual charges for the various types of tourist accommodation.
The Directive lays down the amount payable for each bed in a rental room, apartment or holiday home; for every unit in a camp-site; and for properties offering ‘Robinson accommodation’. The fee is paid by individuals offering tourist facilities in their properties or on family-owned agricultural land. The Directive also sets out the style and content of the Tourist Board application form which has to be submitted by natural or legal persons (private or business individuals) in the tourism industry.
Tourism industry operators have to submit a form (Obrascu TZ 1) to their registered Tax Office by January 1st of the current year, giving the details of the basis on which their membership fee was calculated for the previous year.
The level of the annual membership fee is prepared according to information in the eVisitor system, and the actual amount is laid down in the Directive.
