Tourist Tax Gold Mine

The Regional Secretary for Finance, Rogério Gouveia, said today that the proposed Budget of the Autonomous Region of Madeira for 2024 (ORAM2024) foresees an additional 10 million euros in revenue from the tourist tax.

However, he stressed that this “is a process that is in dialogue and negotiation with the municipalities and, naturally, throughout 2024 it will become more formalised and cohesive.”

Even so, he wanted to leave “a challenge” so that the process “is managed responsibly and with common sense, in the sense that it does not become an obstacle to Madeira as a tourist destination. Futhermore,” he stressed, “the tourist tax must be equitable across the territory so that all of Madeira is valued.”

Asked if this meant that the municipalities should give up this revenue in favour of the Region, Rogério Gouveia did not want to elaborate, insisting only that he hopes that “common sense prevails.”

A slightly different slant from what the PAN party foresees.
