Croatia must step out, go to new market demands, we are going to a different organization, he added. Speaking of the sojourn tax, it will be decentralized and its amount will be decided at the local level – cities and municipalities will make their proposals, and the counties will bring the amount of the sojourn tax. Cappelli also referred to tourist membership fees – we introduced some new taxpayers such as banks, and we removed some, those for whom it was a pure parafiscal levy.A special focus will be on total quality management, and the Minister invites everyone to embark on this project because it is the measurability of everything that tourist boards do, and the city as a destination. We need to measure the level we have reached in the tourist offer, he believes.Cappelli: Family accommodation has become a real estate businessThis summer, it was commented that the apartments were not full enough, but we must say that we have reached the number of 56.000 more beds in private accommodation, so we must say that we have a shortage of the same number of guests. He said that today we have 7% more guests than last year and that is some maximum we could reach, we have to bring the disproportion of family accommodation, camps and hotels to one level, but the market will say that.Currently, the ratio is 56% of family accommodation versus 15% of hotel accommodation, and the rest are camps. The problem is in those 56% of private accommodation because you have 71% of them with three stars. We are for quality family accommodation, it used to be a social measure, it is no longer, it has become a real estate business, and we are against it, he said.The consultation lasts until mid-October, after which all criticisms and proposals will be considered, he expects that, in addition to well-intentioned, ‘make-up’ criticism, he expects that the package of laws could be in the Government at the end of October.Watch the whole show hereRELATED NEWS:HUNT ON FAMILY ACCOMMODATION AND POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCESHUB: IT IS NOT LOGICAL THAT BANKS WHICH DO NOT PERFORM REGISTERED TOURIST OR SERVICE ACTIVITIES ARE EXPECTED TO BE SUBJECT TO THE LAW ON TOURIST MEMBERSHIP FEESMINISTRY OF TOURISM PRESENTS DRAFT PROPOSAL OF TOURIST LAW PACKAGESlast_img
