Groups that are part of the Parliament of the Balearic Islands have supported past week the initiative of Partido Popular concerning the rental accommodation in the Islands, this is based on three aspects:
- The Parliament urges the Balearic Islands Government to submit this initiative to the camera for study, discussion and adoption of a draft law regulating the different types of tourist stay in the Balearic Islands.
- The Parliament urges the Government to reach a consensus on this bill with all sectors concerned and especially with marketing holiday rentals online companies.
- The third point concerning the removal of the bill tax tourist stays in the Balearic Islands and measures to promote sustainable tourism to the regulation of rental holiday housing, finally it has not been tested for lack of consensus among the different parties.
The parties supporting executive management have refused to do so, because the intention is that the new tax begins to be charged this year.
Over the past year, the regularization of holiday homes was lower than the previous year due to the rise of this activity outside the current rules. That is why has intensified inspections in such housing. The owners who want to rent their homes to tourists should make a statement accountable to the Ministry of Tourism, as recorded by the Tourism Act of 2012.
