Shipping companies at Balearic ports will have to pay some four million euros tourist tax next year. The association for maritime businesses, which represents shipping agents, says that the change introduced by the regional government is something that the businesses are getting used to, as a tax also applies in Barcelona. At that port there has been an increase in the tax charged to cruise ship passengers.
