Diverse and sometimes contradictory recommendations are currently under discussion to modify underlying rules governing Local Lodging. In last year’s budget, numerous changes came into effect regarding the taxation of Local Lodging income. In IRC, “AL” income under the Corporate Simplified Regime lost its reduced 0.04 coefficient, rising to 0.35. In IRS, the changes moved in the same direction: under the Simplified Regime for Independent workers, the 0.35 coefficient also applies. Apartments and villas let under in Local Lodging registrations were excluded from the 0.15 coefficient still available to room lets, hostels and holiday offerings registered under the “Tourist Development” classification.
It is now possible to pay many of your taxes via direct debit. The levies currently available by this payment method are “IUC” (car tax), “IMI” (property tax), “IRS” (individual income tax), “IRC” (corporate income tax) as well as instalment payments. The new functionality can be found on the Finanças Portal in the area to query and pay taxes, by the app “Situação Fiscal” (Fiscal Situation) available for IOS or Android, as well as in person in “AT” (Tax Authority) offices around the country.
