Who pays the tourist tax?

Who are the persons subject to the tourist tax at cost during a stay? Published 5/5/2017 in MultiSite Portail Taxe Séjour

The tourist tax applies to stays with a fee. So, the persons accomodated for free don’t pay the tourist tax. However, if you offer the stay (for example, as part of a special offer « buy one night, get one free »), the persons will have to pay the tourist tax.

Who are the persons subject to the tourist tax at cost during a stay? 

The tourist tax affects any person who is not a resident of the commune and who does not own a residence for which he would be liable for local residence tax.
If I rent accomodation on a monthly basis, am I liable to tourist tax ?
  • The answer is yes, if your accommodation is only considered as a seasonal holiday home.
  • The answer is no if your holiday home is covered by “mixed-asset” seasonal and annual rules (on presentation of documentary evidence) and that your client is renting for reasons of temporary training or a temporary or permanent employment and that he has paid his residence tax, if the period of occupancy included the 1st January of the year in progress.

Preliminary declarations

Mandatory declaration of bed and breakfrasts and furnished holiday accomodation Published 5/5/2017 in MultiSite Portail Taxe Séjour

Any person who offers a seasonal or permanent rental, one or more bed and breakfasts in private homes or furnished holiday accommodation (house, apartment or studio) to accommodate tourists, must notify his local town hall with an acknowledgement of receipt.

This measure provided for in Article L324-1-1 of the Tourism Code is based on Article 24 of the Act (N°2009-888) of 22nd July 2009 for the development and modernization of tourist services.

Furnished tourist accommodation must necessarily include a written seasonal rental contract, which indicates the price charged and a description of the premises. It is worth remembering that furnished holiday lettings which includes furnished villas, houses, apartments or studios are for the exclusive use of a tenant and offered for rental on a short-term daily, weekly or monthly basis and which are not permanent residences.

On the other hand, bed and breakfasts are furnished rooms situated in the proprietor’s private residence, to accommodate tourists for one or more nights in return for a fee including services.

Beware!

In the communes where the change of use of habitation locals is subject to prior authorisation under articles L.631-7 and L. 631-9 of the French Construction and Housing Code, a deliberation of the municipal council can decide to submit any short-term renting of a furnished accomodation to an advance declaration subject to registration to municipality, in favor of customers passing through the area without making it their home.

When implemented, this declaration subject to registration stand in for the Cerfa declaration.

The declaration can be done with a teleservice. It can also be done with any other form of submission expected by the deliberation mentionned above.

Upon receipt, the declaration leads to the issue, without delay, by the collectivity, of a receipt including the declaration number.

To find out which measure applies in the collectivity where your good is, you must contact the town hall’s department.
