The State Inspectorate is finally bringing order. The eVisitor system compares ads on Booking.com to catch illegal renters

first_imgApart from the fact that illegal renters lower the price, they do not pay taxes (thus earning more than you) damage directly to you, as well as to the entire tourist destination. The new State Inspectorate has consolidated the tasks of 17 inspections within eight ministries. Thus, market, sanitary, veterinary, agricultural, hunting, forestry, phytosanitary, tourist, mining, inspection of pressure equipment, energy, management of toxic chemicals, labor, construction, environmental protection, nature protection and water inspection are united. Those who do everything according to the Law do not have to be afraid or intimidated by inspections. Recall, in accordance with the new amendments to the Law on Hospitality, which, among other things, requires that tourism inspectors have the opportunity to apply the principle of opportunity, ie the possibility that minor violations can be warned, with a deadline to correct irregularities, not to they immediately print out fines. So, if someone has listed their apartment on Booking.com, it is easy to see if the same landlord is also registered in the eVisitor system. On the other hand, all those who respect the Law and settle all their obligations to the State, turn out to be “fools” towards those who do not. So accordingly, the question arises whether you will report your “colleagues”, friends, neighbors who rent illegally? On the other hand, illegal renters are unfair competition and a big problem of our tourism. In addition to not paying taxes and all other levies, by lowering prices, they destroy the market and thus are unfair competition to all those who pay everything regularly and according to the law. RELATED NEWS: As the inspections merged and with the reorganization of the independent State Inspectorate, the work of the inspections should have been more efficient and functional. In tourism, it should enable a clearer and more concrete fight against the black and gray economy. Certainly, it is in everyone’s interest to suppress the black market, because they are unfair competition to legal landlords. It is in everyone’s interest to combat illegal landlords. Why would they be “smart” and you “fools”. Yes, that is exactly what everyone who pays according to the law turns out to be. center_img Report illegal landlords as well as anyone else who does not comply with the Act. “Advertising on platforms such as Booking.com and Airbnb can also be a reason to conduct inspections. Namely, the Law on Catering stipulates that when advertising and advertising services and displaying messages in promotional materials, the landlord may use only the designation of the prescribed type and the category and type of special standard of the facility determined by the competent office, and when advertising and advertising services with taxpayers from the European Union must indicate the tax number, ie VAT identification number”, They explain in the inspectorate for Poslovni dnevnik. TAX ADMINISTRATION MOVES FISCALIZATION SUPERVISION IN THE ACCOMMODATION SERVICE SECTOR Everyone must pay taxes and all levies prescribed by law, including landlords. We need fair market competition, so let the one who is better, more creative, more proactive, more capable “win” and the one who invests more in quality and gives his personal contribution as a host. Non-payment of taxes, non-registration of workers and illegal landlords are the cancer of the wound of our tourism, and the State Inspectorate will focus on that. In order to carry out better control and bring order to the black zone, under the new law, inspectors will be able to enter facilities that have not reported renting accommodation. It is the tourism sector, renters and catering facilities, announced by the State Inspectorate, that will be in focus before the start of the peak tourist season. The unified State Inspectorate began operations on Monday (April 01st). How to find illegal renters? Simply. Assistance to the State Inspectorate will be eVisitor data where all renters must register, and illegal renters will be compared with data / advertisements on the strongest booking portals, such as Booking.com and Airbnb.com.
