They ask for the suppression of municipal taxes until the summer of next year and to give facilities to the establishments to continue exploiting the terraces during the next months

The Compostela Hotel Association and the Association of Bars, Pubs and Discos of Santiago held several meetings with Compostela Aberta and the BNG in the last few days to which they expressed the need to open a direct dialogue with the Xunta and establish a clear and agreed roadmap with the sector for the reactivation of a sector deeply affected by the COVID crisis19. Furthermore, they once again expressed their rejection of the measure adopted by the Consellería de Sanidade regarding the closure of nightlife and called for the elimination of this measure.

In this regard, the hoteliers said that the proposal of the Xunta to allow the opening of these establishments outside is insufficient since many of them lack space for terraces and those who have them, have few options to use them in the face of winter.

In both meetings, also requested the removal of some municipal taxes such as garbage, until the summer of 2021 and to facilitate the activity outside the premises, allowing the implementation of heating stoves to extend the use of the terraces until the end of the year.

Other issues that these associations have also been calling for are the permanent extension of the ERTES until the sector is fully recovered, management aid for self-employed workers who cannot open their businesses, exemption from Social Security contributions and a reduction in VAT to 7%.
