“Ecotaxa” on Madeira Island

The district of S. Cruz, Madeira, created an “Ecotaxa” on all tourist accommodation, including Local Lodging. The cost is 1 € per person per night (only for guests over the age of 18) and the maximum per person and stay is € 5.

The levy is supposed to be paid as of January 2016: The City Hall provides a form which is to be sent to them until the 10th of each following month. The Council then issues a payment order, and the property owners have 30 days to pay the amount.

The issue is being contested by the Chamber of Commerce and the big hotels in S. Cruz, they hold the levy to be unfair since it is not applicable to the whole island. The issue has gone to court.
