The amount of tourist tax in Kiev increased
During the first quarter of 2019, the amount of tourist tax in Kiev increased by 35%, if compared with the same period last year.
This is reported by the Department of Tourism and Promotion of the KSCA on Facebook.
"If the tourist flow does not change, then Kiev will collect 45-50 million hryvnias in a year (for comparison, last year 25.3 million hryvnias were collected from the tourist tax)," the statement reads.
The Office noted that the increase in tourist tax rate did not affect the number of tourists in Kiev.
"In the capital, one of the lowest rates of tourist tax in the world. Introduction of tourist tax is the practice of the whole world in urban development. So for Kiev on February 14, 2019, the city council approved new tourist tax rates, which were: 1% for foreigners and 0, 4% - for Ukrainians ", - reported in the KSCA.
At the same time, it is noted that about 70% of hostels in Ukraine work in the shadows, without paying tourist tax and taxes. For the legalization of hostels you need to make laws, where for the first time there will be a legal definition of the concept of "hostel", as it has long been done in Europe. Changes in the Law of Ukraine "On Tourism" and the Law of Ukraine "On Housing and Utilities Services" can become such laws.
In addition, Kiev creates a "Register of hostels of the city", which work officially and pay a tourist tax. Soon they can be seen on the website of the Office of Tourism and Promotions KSCA.
