Tourism/ Rama warns hotels: Next year you will pay a reference price, we have 1 million tourists in September
The Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, has warned that accommodation structures next year will have a reference price for taxes. He emphasized that looking at the current trend, by December, the number of tourists could reach 10 million.
" We want to facilitate you as much as possible, but on the other hand you have to contribute back what is written, not more. You think of hotels on the coast, you know very well, it's no secret, it's enough to do some small surveys through the tax office, to understand that the prices that are declared are different, the prices that are paid are different.
Another is the level of occupation and the level that is declared. Even the hotels must prepare that they will have a reference price, but that's all you will give to the state. We have 1.1 million tourists in September and if December follows this trend, we may catch 10 million tourists, but we will probably exceed 9.
As for the sale of apartments and rooms in hotels, we do not see any other way, except that we cannot tell you that " no, we do not accept to take 6% tax from you for this figure that you give us". We will take this 6% that the market tells us", he said.
