Aptur, the association for tourist apartments (of the holiday rental variety), says that there are 45,000 properties in the Balearics which have 180,000 tourist places available and that 54,000 of these places are currently regularised. This means that 70% will avoid the application of the tourist tax because they aren’t regularised and outside any form of control by the tourism ministry. This legal vacuum is something that Aptur wished to dealt with through a reform of the tourism law.
Tourist tax will not be paid by 70% of private tourist accommodation
