Resort Fees Will Be Introduced In Several Russian regions
July 27, 2017 12:13


 The Federation Council on Tuesday approved the law on the introduction of resort fees in several Russian regions, including the Crimea.

This is a pilot project to charge fees for using the resort infrastructure. The experiment will be conducted in the territories of the Crimea, the Altai Territory, the Krasnodar Territory and the Stavropol Territory. Subjects of the Russian Federation should pass laws on the introduction of the collection before December 1, 2017, the fee itself may be charged from May 1, 2018. The experiment will last till December 31, 2022.

Payers of the fee will be adult citizens who stayed for more than a day in a hotel or other accommodation facility. The law defines preferential categories of citizens who are exempt from paying a holiday fee. Operators of the resort fee will be legal entities and individual entrepreneurs providing accommodation services.

Funds from the payment for the use of the resort infrastructure will be used to finance the construction, reconstruction and improvement works. The resort infrastructure, which will be charged for the use of the facilities, includes objects of medical and recreational, socio-cultural, sports and recreational purposes, including parks, urban forests, beaches and embankments, pedestrian areas and amenities.
Resort fee is subject to enrollment in the budget of the subject of the Russian Federation, in the territory of which the experiment is conducted. To collect and distribute these funds, the Resort Infrastructure Development Fund will be created, which will be a part of the budget of the subject of the Russian Federation. At the same time, in 2018, 70% of the projected revenues from the payment of the fee to the territory of the respective municipality will be channeled to municipal budgets. In subsequent years, 100% of the fund's resources will be distributed between municipalities. In the subjects it is proposed to create public councils that will monitor the target spending of the fund's allocations.
Collection is put into effect by the law of the subject of the Russian Federation. Regional authorities also determine the size of the resort fee and the territory on which it will be levied, the procedure and terms for its payment and transfer to the budget of the subject of the Russian Federation. The fee can not be more than 50 rubles per person per night in a hotel in 2018 and 100 rubles in the remaining years of the experiment. The fee can be differentiated depending on the season and time of the payer's stay in the accommodation facility.
The authors of the document assume that the additional volume of revenues in the period from 2018 to 2022 in the Stavropol Territory will exceed 2.02 billion rubles, in the Krasnodar Territory - 8.3 billion rubles, in the Republic of Crimea - 16.4 billion rubles.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian regions began to identify the possible rates of resort fees, which they will charge in the experiment from May 1, 2018.
